This car has been under going testing by Hirosaka and other drivers in Japan. And what you see the prototype chassis had undergo lots of minor changes and making sure it doesn't scrap the ground. This is not a car that hasn't test it.

According to the RC Wordl, Hara is interested in testing this car because they met at Reedy race Thailand.

I personally will not consider buying it because of Price. But I know someone will because I saw a Durango in my area and the price range is about the same as this car. This is not a everyone car.

I'm not impressed.
Sure it looks like a great car, but without any support and only 30 being made,
I don't see a real reason to buy one unless your a pro. Somebody mentioned "collectible", PLEASE!
We of all people know what kind of resale value these things keep.
Your better off buying one of those gold minted coins from the frankling mint.
At least they will hold its value and only cost you 3 payments of $19.99!
All kidding aside, get yourself a Pro 4, or a TB IV, or even the worlds replica kit from Yokomo if your set on spending money.
At the end of the day, when we all read the results at big events,
the TQ names you will see will always still be the reliable well proven cars.
Until the ALF-05 becomes a production car and has the "REAL" R&D team (The general public, US!) have a go with it,
then it is simply a pricey over indulgence that only pro driver use.

I don't think there is a part #. It is just a piece they are making for the 30 limited cars. Unless Schumacher is releasing it for mass production, I don't see it having a part #.

... I think that "IF" this car ever gets made there will be like a secret data base that only the "Original" buyer can see to get the special part #`s

That one piece shaft will be sold under Powers International Japan. This is because he is also planning to make one for SD just as well.

Don't really know the exact date because the advertisement only talked about HIROSAKA will sell his products under Powers, something like that...

I don't know will he make one for TC4 though........

"We closed receipt of orders for ALF-05 on January 15. We appreciate many inquiries both from Japan and from overseas.
We are able to fulfill all 27 orders."
