Sorry, don't know what happened. It was working earlier.
Any way, go to:
www.tamiya.com/japan
and you'll see a "New Item" and click on a picture of TRF414M.

Picture of a car is from World championship, but sounds like
it will be a World championship logo(?) and serial number will be on
the motor plate(?). some Titanium parts, new front stablizer and new damper system. I am sure their will be more detail later.

Super38,

Oh, don't worry, none taken I just want to share my point of view on the whole issue. Heck, if I had it my way, I would open a race track here in southern california and try to attract more people to our hobby (but everyone know how insanely high the land/rent cost here).

hi Super38,

Dont' scare me (or urself) like that!!

Apparently they're not closing, like you said. But how did you figure it was because they're not getting enough business? From what I saw at RCchamp forums, they were just closed for the 2 days, and were opened back up since yesterday (thurs).

It really did scare me though!!! Same thoughts as you, what would happen if they really did close!? That would be disastrous!

As soon as final exams are over, I'm gonna be there like every day. See, I'm still in highschool, OAC actually, UofT for me next year (whoooo! ), so you can understand why I'm so touchy about pricing. Being, a student with a minimum wage job, and tuition-plus-interest to pay off in the near near future, it's incredibly hard to support myself in the RC world.

Hey, hope to see you at Champs sometime.

The WC edition 's full retail price is JPY54,800. The special shocks that Surikarn used in S. Africa will be included, but not sure about the diff rings. However, the shocks will be anodized in blue just like the M2 Ltd edition i.e. not gun metal like Surikarn's. The special new shocks is much smoother (new coatings) and less leakage...i.e. last longer between rebuilds.
The significant changes in this WC edition would be the suspension blocks and the additional spacers (although Tamiya did not mention this in their website). Check out for Surikarn's set up n changes on the net .....
