Are we talking about a 10th touring car chassis?? And by chassis is that a conversion or a complete car?

Sounds like Tommy has a complete car in the works. Can't wait to see his handiwork!

The new TK touring car will be my ticket back into sedan racing. I beat Masami at a club race using the TK edition Yokomo several years ago. With his new car I should be able to take Rheinhard and Hara as well.

Belt or shaft?
Any outstanding features as opposed to the TRF417.

Knowing Tommy, every feature is outstanding. Or, as Xray likes to state, optimized!

Ok. Thanks for the replies. Appreciate it.

However I am trying to get a better understanding still.

fi. What were the differences between the original SD(W) compared to Tommy's?

As you can clearly see, the motor mount is a two piece design. This adds dimensional stability. Also, the chassis was CAD designed, and Tommy himself claims that the quasi isotropic layup of the carbon fiber allows the chassis to have total harmonic distortion.

If you look really closely, you can make out the laser etched signature of the man himself. That alone is worth the price of admission. $850 sounds like a lot, but really it's not for a car of this caliber. Instead of a .38, what you're getting is more like a .50.

The new car looks impressive to say the least. Can't wait to see Tommy back in action with his new car next weekend. His new car would get me back racing TC for sure. I want one!

Does it also come with an oscillation overthruster or will that option be released later? Are the hydrospanners for adjusting the leading-lagging flapping bearing preload indicating washer tab ring included in the kit? Also, does the gweebo disk exert coplanar gravitic force with the diffs? Does it come with a trunk monkey?

No to everything except the trunk monkey.

Hard to tell from that second picture, but who is "Big Johnson"?
