Sorry to open the debate again but according to the Tamiya English website the body is in fact the new Legacy B4. Go figure.

(Sigh) need new bodies again. Neither evo3 nor 415 has same body post position as the evo4.

Hey guys

I just took the Evo 4 for a spin, took a light hit of a corner and spun into a wall, nothing broke except for the plastic drive cup for the prop shaft of all the pieces to break, strange that it was that one.

Well, I wonder if that is the new weak link of the drivetrain. It used to be the bevel/oneway gear that gave but the new gears seem very durable.

Get em both! You can always sell one later - you'd probably not lose much money via ebay

Yes I Have Both... the 415 is a bit more solid and less prone to chassis tweak ... I have about 10 days on the EVO4 now and I'm finding that the chassis is a bit easy to tweak..even with the center braces .. .... but thats something that Tamiya might be able to fix with a 3mm chassis..?? or a stiffer center brace.??? who knows they both are easy to set up and drive
