Usagi,

What do you mean by "257mm and 187mm for 35,800 yen or around 25,060 yen" is that the length of the car? and what's with the two different price???

Those are prices........ and the size of the car... I read about the new parts, but its kind of fuzzy about the parts. I thought i saw those parts talked about on the tamiya site ( japanese ) but its not clear enough to me to posted them. The price will be 25,060 yen street price, or $220.00 If you convert yen to dollar.

woohoo! good one TFR!!

Damn EVO two get rid of all the weakness of EVO I. They get rid of most of plastic parts... this is just great!! now I don't have to worry about the plastic getting wear out after a while when the screw has been screw in/out. Damn... gotta start to save some money now!... yeah... can't be happier!!!

TBEVO 2 - 35,800 yen... approx S$530
TRF 414 - 47,800 yen approx S$700 (though the lhs retails @ 650)....

Which would u get? Personally, I'd choose the 414M because IMHO the parts are shared with TA04 so parts avaiabiliyt *could* be better... should I break something. EVO OTOH is shared with TG10R is it? I could be wrong...
