All the little details and refinements make so much sense

My CEFX is awesome and I'm keeping it but definitely getting this car

Good work Tamiya

Great new products! I specially appreciated the new TRF 502!

Once you're hooked there's no way out!
Yes, good to see the smaller box. Can't wait to get my car.

Marc Rienhard is still using the TRF416

Although it has the lipo chassis but he said " i changed to a new 416 chassis and the car was better"

wonder why he is not using the TRF417

I read somewhere (I think it was on RedRC) that he hasn't recieved the new TRF417 yet. That's why he is still using the 416.

Same goes for the 416 spool in the respect... I assume that as the bearing eccentris aren't flush to the inner face of the bulkheads on the 6, they've moved the bulkheads in so they now are on the 7! Keeps the bearing spacing the same, but moves the bulkheads in

They'd best make one that works with the 416.

I'd imagine, if the bulkheads on the new car are thinner, a little shimming for the old car and you are bueno.

does it work with 416? i believe 416 and 417 have different pulley sizes.

Considering they won the worlds a few months ago with a 416 using a gear diff, it would be a pretty huge slap in the face if they left us out in the cold. But, I've come to expect that sort of thing from Tamiya.
