The chassis is a limited run chassis. The whole point is that there won't be an indefinite supply. The parts are still available (also many shared with other Tamiya kits) plus they might make another batch.

I think they might release another batch like the other limited chassis.

Anyway, they are losing 1 good client like me lol. (More Demand - Limit Supply)
I plan to have CS Drift Chassis - Belt. So I aim to Yokomo DRB.

Even though it's limited run, this kind of kit doesn't have much collector value. We sold couple at the store, but both became shelf-queen.

I'm living in asia so it's not quite hard to find out the spare part and hop up from yokomo. Anyway I still looking for the chance. If lucky I might get VDF from hongkong where I planned to fly to but it' s over a month.

Because Tamiya spare part are easily to get than the other.

Hi, i'm looking for a tensioner beam, part number 13454720 (BB17) in the manual, but having no luck in the usual places. It is a VDF exclusive part i think so not very easy to find...can anyone help at all??

Thanks
Chris

Sup dudes,

Please forgive me if this question is not suitable but despite the fact this is especially a drift chassis what's the chances of using the VDF up against the top dogs like T3, TCX etc. Since Tamiya is coming out with the gold edition soon I'm very tempted. I'm still new to this hobby and from my knowledge the VDF actually looks a lot more balanced than the expensive TCs. The only gripe I have with the VDF from pictures is that work space looks very limited.

Thanks

You should of bought the Square bulkheads. They allow you to run taller pullies because the top halves are seperate.
