Default new wishbones!

By the looks of those pics, the wishbones seem slightly different to the current tamiya ones: notably the 3 shock mounting holes on the front.

Yeah, it looks trick. Want to see oen in person though. Kinda cool that they are trying a different suspension arm though.

Probably a running change to the old TA04 arms to allow for more adjustments.

Don't look like it... TBe1/2's bulkheads were flat slabs, and
there were plastic TGR housings for the gears.

The ones in the picture suggest the TBe3's plastic housing
has been replicated as a skeletal design; possibly drop-in
interchangeable with the old style - I'm hoping.

(so that'll make it an option for TB02 too... "marketing thinking")

You know what? I still want to buy em just for both collection and with minor mod be as fast as TC3s out there. Just because it is new it doesn't mean it's going to be better unless you're talking about from TB EVO II to EVO III to EVO III SE.

Pfft...why wait? If they come out with ANOTHER Evo your'e gonna wait 3 months after it comes out for the announcement of the next Evo and wait another year til it comes out....then wait for the announcement of the next Evo. My dad proved to me that a slightly "older" Tamiya car (ie: 414 MII) can still outhandle 9/10 of the cars out there even if its not Tamiyas newest car

Just hang with the latest tech you can afford until you have the cash and/or need newer tech.

They look like new cvd's/universals/driveshafts

Bulkhead looks plastic with aluminium brace from lower deck to shock tower and possibly top deck mound. But most of the diif housing still looks plastic.
