No wonder, Tamiya kits use PziDrive and they need different screwdrivers.... heehee

3Racing seems to have solved this problem with a 1-piece upper deck, in SG or regular CF colours.. it eliminates the whole link of bolts in the rear end, saving a bit of extra weight.

And, there's always the Flap version coming out, in all its Blue glory, albeit likely more expensive for it..
http://www.geocities.jp/hobbyshows/j...oka/rc/168.jpg and it seems much like the Xenon version with the plastic braces, so the upper deck may be usable on the stock chassis as well..
The Penguin R/C TA05 graphite conversion kit that is coming out should be pretty trick. We should see this conversion kit available soon as it is in the final testing stages.

Really? Looks pretty much the same aside from the small details. I'll stick to the tub chassis. If Tamiya ever releases a plate chassis, I might consider it...might!

A little tweaked...but I have not noticed any problems from it whatsoever. All tubs from every manufactuer are tweaked a little. It's impossible in the molding process to have it 100% flat.

Most parts are... things like aftermarket spurs and pinions are still legal.
