Injek: You should you should also use thesame parts of the TA04r but arms, chassis and car body comes different. Its faster in cornering considering its compact size and agility.

They should've named it the TAO4-RS:

R - to designate the equipment equal to the "R"
S - to designate "short", duh

But TAO4-SS implies:

S - equipped like the "S"
S - short, duh.

Cant wait to get my hands on one. But I have seen it run here in Manila when Masayuki Miura paid us a visit last May. Thats how I first saw it. He joined our race using it coz the car was still up for testing at that time. To my surprise he was using a sport tuned motor and an Apex esc on our technical track yet finished second.

If the SS is the same chassis as the S only shorter, then you're only getting a basic TA04, not an R.

The chassis is the same and only the arms change. The front arms are more to the back and the rear arms are more to the front. This means the weight distribution stais the same. Only one type body (Toyota MR 2 JTCC) in two different colors.
