Oh, and good job to Tamiya on the very quick reply!!

oops.. i guess my TA05 has to sit around a little bit longer then before she races again.

Gee, I talked to Fred, two weeks ago and he said it would be about 2-3 weeks!
I think they should include a free set of titanium screws for making us wait!!!

Kind of sad it takes 6 weeks after Tamiya Japan gets parts for it to trickle to the US. Guess our market isn't the priority.

that's stup**** it does not matter if it's not here yet in the USA, if they make the product already and it's already being ship it should be TCS legal.

I agree 100%. I think it's BS, if its made by Tamiya and it has been released, even if in Japan, it should be TCS legal.

And that's where winners end up racing anyways. Imagine if those parts is the difference between winning or losing the race, that would really hurt

Count yourself lucky that the American Tamiya distributor knows what has been releases and what is due to be released, talk to the Tamiya Rep in the UK... and it's 'erm... a what??'

Easy Champ, easy!
Be happy we can get the TA05 parts sooner than most. I think Tamiya has a valid point and heck it's there rules. Remember my cards are on you Mr. TA04!
