Default tb evolution 2

i was looking at the tb evo2 and i observed the following:

1. aluminum bulkheads and suspension arms
2. turnbuckles for the upper arms instead of those telescoping upper arms
3. the thing that holds the foam bumper is now made of carbon fiber (at least the top)
4. the propeller shaft is still made of aluminum
5. the section of the lower deck where you put the motor is now shaped like a motor

is this thing available in japan already?

dang!!! my fingers are itching already.

newracer: this is actually my first touring rc (i have a wild dagger) and i find it its really "fun" to drive the evo. especially if you brake hard and it spins like crazy. so i need to control the brakes. but i like it.

does the front ball diff add any considerable weight to the car?

the one way diff is the reason your car spins out during breaking, the ball diff might actually be lighter than the one way

what freaks me out here is that the local distributor of tamiya parts get new stock every 3 to 4 months. aaaarrggggh! so in other words. they do not have stock at the moment. 8(

the stock shocks upper attachments (where the shocks attache to the shock tower) is in the middle hole. what happens to the performance of the car if you set it to the inner most or the outer most?

hmmm... just wondering, if tamiya didn't change the gearcases (still from the tgr) then it may be possible to get the new aluminum bulkheads to fit the older tb evolution....

Hi,

Amyone interested in a TB evo, the car had only been run once and come complete with spare front diff and some titanium screws. Btw I am from Singapore. Drop me a e-mail if any of you are interested.
