I suppose you meant the internal ratio. It is now 2.294 (or 39/17).

Default Tamiya LIES

WFT, I go on the tamiya website and read THAT

Now we all know that Surikarn used the TRF415 with the Tb Evo 4 suspensions on it. They have no need to lie and say that he used the Evo 4. He didn't either use that bodyshell, he's supposed to have used a PF body or a ride body (can't remember which one it was but really it doesn't matter).

What do you guys think of that ?

PS : That bodyshell looks good though... I'm gona get one for sure !

Probably just a mistake. They have so many new cars out it could be confusing to even people who works at Tamiya lol.

I aggree what you say but regarding the shell it only say "Introducing the Subaru Legacy B4 body as used by Surikarn during his win in the Reedy Touring Car Race." he may have only used it for one run or practice but not in the races to win the Reedy, as the say "DURING his win"

But the point is, it may list at Y28800 but it often is not cheaper to get from Japan.
I finally got my email from rc-champ. They now use Paypal or bank transfer . They only charge Y1,902 for Paypal fee and Y4,700 for EMS shipping. With the kit the total comes to Y35,402 which is about ($325 US using Y109=$1). I'd say much better than eBay or anywhere else right now.


p.s.
Add $40 to Ti screws.

They only charge you Y4700 for shipping? I might have to try them next time. With PayPal you don't get 109 as the exchange rate. It's usually a couple of points off the official rate, so closer to 107 today.
