Default Shizouka show

Just wondering if anyone else has been looking at the Shizouka Show stuff on the r/c car action site.

Tamiya release such an astonishing amount of stuff - there's loads of hop-ups for the F201 chassis, and a non-ferrari kit, and TRF branded KO Propo speedo.

Mental (why do they never import that stuff to britain though? I think i see a gap in the market....)

well, i think the primary difference between TB01 and TT01 is that TT01 is expert built series and it seems more ready to race but still it comes with the bath tub chassis like TB01, so ithink will be heavy too. then u will have to buy many hop-ups to lighten it and make it more pro........

Just my views after seeing the cars.

let's wait for the specs out 1st.......

dun think so the tt01 will be expert-built,...
or they should have called it tb-01 XB as they did with the tl-01...

well,let's jus wait 4 the specs 2 come out...

Thanks for the link. There're quite a no. of points to note:

the real prototype of YM34 Type Si, really nice;
the first (???) GP of Team Atlas (Vision???);
the super ugly 3PK though I think it's better balance than 3PJS;
while Panasonic is launching their 3000 Ultra Metal, Sanyo has their 3300HVR;

Afterall, great show

it may b tt-01 XB,but tat doesn't make it a tb01 XB rite?...
or did i mis-read ur msg???...
ok,...i jus put my points down:
1)the tt01 is not same as tb01
2)tt01 is not tb01 XB...

i think i might have mis-read ur msg...sorrie...
anyway,tt01 will surely have a normal version in the long run...

anyway,i think tat the tt01 looks like the evo2...hehee

i think u misread my msg. is ok...not here to quarrel with ppl. here to make frens and share pointers.

TT01 can't be like Evo2. by appearance is really different but dun know abt the structure of the car. if it looks like Ev02, then evo2 parts will be available easily rather than now, limited edition.....if i buy then crash out, heart pain....

I thinking of getting it but as u said, to fully enjoy a car, must find the availabilty of spare parts so that u can drive ur car to the extreme, if crashed out, still can repair it....

Anyway, i still thinking. who knows i may end up buying 04r since the parts are widely available unless TA05 come out...

Anyway, thanx for the advice

Thanx for the suggestions..... i will consider Evo2 first as i still prefer shaft and i have 2 TB01 at home...1 carbon chassis and i stock...

if i decide to play with belt, then i will buy Ta04R.

Actually is a big investment to think of....
