Anyway, just reposted the pics, nothing new there.

And, personally, the whole interest in the prototype, is not about a new car coming into production, just that I like to see any type of new design coming out.

And when you hide it, it simply gets even more interesting!
Just two words: GOOD job

and for the car being to flexy???

how many TC3 have they came out with compared to x-ray, corally.. and yet its still shows up in the a-main in alot of races.
hhmmmmm

the price on tc4 didn't go up matter of fact its cheaper than the tc3... two arms for 5.00 oooooo yea it breaks easy >>> only if you don't know how to drive.

don't get me wrong i like the x-ray but why do we have to come out with a new car every 6 months??????????
The FK is almost a year old and by the time Xray comes out with a new car it will probably be 1 1/2 - 2 years old. Before the FK the Evo 2 FOC was 2 years old. And besides the FK isn't a whole new car. It's like the difference between a TC3 racer and a TC3 Factory Team. So if you say Xray comes out with a new car every 6 months Associated does the same too.

no matter who comes out with what and who does what .... people will bicker back and forth but that is good because if everyone like the same car it would be boring..

iirc tamiya have a contract of some sort and they have to produce a new car every 6 months or so for them to keep the contract if you get what i mean.

not sure if its entirely true but i heard thats the case.

Well, that was a new theory. Truth is that in Japan, new is better, and new sells. Not only in the RC market. Europe is different and US different again. A culture thing I would say.

so if the "TA04-TRF version" cars were actually out before the Xrays then you understand my how off it sounds when people snap to comment: that the new prototype Xray looks like they copied the 415. but i still beleive the Xray's were first between these two company's in the high end refinement of this design and Atlas beat them both

point is...none of the Atlas, Xray's or Tamiya 415 / TA04's are original designs. they are refined/redesigns of earlier cars.
You mean the TRF 04 that is exactly the same as the Tamiya TA04 pro that was the first ever TA04? The one that had been out for years before the TRF one came out? The only difference been silver graphite. Rick
