I know. I was told it would be about 399 Euro but maybe they change it

I'm also curious who will buy it.

It's certainly become 'one of us' (said with a zombie like drone), but then everything is now, it's gone the swing rack which seems the most recent trend, but a step back on the lower arm mounts when others are heading back to the Tamiya style again.


Could be an indicator of where TM is heading with everything, not all that surprising given the brand barely is still even there.

Well TM marketing isn't the best.
The minimum for a distributor is crazy,especially for a brand that is known but almost dead. Then resell doesn't have much overhead for any store or warehouse to make money. and yet keep it affordable for the user.

They have good cars but getting your hands one one as a reseller buyer or racer is not so easy.

From what i have heard you have to order at least a couple of hundred euro's to make it worth to ship to you.
In that way and the lack off support turned me off from the TM car.
Don't get me wrong, i loved the TM E4RS i had but the lack of support is killing the brand.
They need to set up a good dealer group and support of parts to get this brand to be noticed.
If i told guys at the track i was running a TM they told me a what
When they saw the car they where like, now there is a sick car design but then was the question where to buy and where to get parts.
Most of them where turned off because they had to order parts from overseas to get them quickly.
Sad tho because it is one bulit proof car when you get it right.

regards Roy

I havent ran it yet but the gear diffs are tricky and need to be sanded down for proper use. Im planning on running it this week.

Drove it for the first time earlier this week... I freaking loved it. I ran the car completely stock and the 3rd lap I did with it was 10.6 (Fastest lap at the time was 10.3). Kit went together nicely with no hang ups. I think I have a new favorite car. It comes with gear diffs which is awesome and handles great.
One thing I didnt like about it was the turn buckles. They are very small. I ended up investing in some Lunsford turn buckles. These arent really needed... just a convenience for the setup board.
will be driving my Photon this weekend along with the E4RSll and will decide what I like better. As of now... I'm leaning on the Black Magic

For Jamison: Fastest lap with the car was 10.2.
