can take years
I didnt say that they wouldnt. They have probably already got a car or are working on one, but they arent stupid enough to let anyone see it as it would be potentially damaging to sales of the TRF415MS which has only just been released!

If you read the Tamiya TCS rules for the Worlds, you need to run stick packs with Tamiya connectors!!

Imagine Q2/GTX running with a Tamiya plug Its odd, but it happens
Ok that was a lame joke!
But seriously - competition car. Why test it with a standard silvercan 540? That wouldnt give 'proper racing feel' that they would be looking for. Therefore there would be no real point in testing it as you couldnt guage how fast it was compared to the TRF 415 and how it handled at race speed!

The plastic of the chassis doesn't look as shiny ad the TB02, it's more similar to the TA04-R's...but it's quite difficult to tell from those pics

RC driver gary's right,
Thats no plastic 415 copy

looks like a mostly a new car.

Few things look similar, namely suspension geometry, looking at the shock towers and camber links.
However the belts look to be equal length, and they are the wrong way round compared to the 415. (Front belt on the right, rear on the left). Also the front belt on the 415 runs down the centre line, on this appears to run just off to the right hand side.
I would say the motor is probably not far off the same position though... maybe this is something we'll see with the 416, when it appears

later
Ed

You guys are all clammoring for the 416, remember the 414 was evolved over the course of nearly 4-5 years. The 416 isn't a nearby chassis, its a few years off yet. BUT


I actually think the motor looks like its positioned more forward than in the 415. Perhaps too they took a bit of a page from the HB Cyclone and moved the motor closer to the centerline as well. I didn't notice the belt position until you just said something, so I honestly wonder if they incorporated the 04's ball diff design. I don't anticipate Tamiya releasing a "regular" car with a one way, and with the current lack of availability of a front diff, by using the 04's front diff you'd need to reposition the belts.

I'd like to see a better pic of the rear diff cover to see if it is a top screw down design like the 04 has.

Uhh, Chris, it IS a tub chassis 415, just like a TA-04 was a Tub version of the 414, but it's going to be called the TA-05 (guessing) Although the 414 was origionally released as the Pro with an FRP chassis. BUT, this car is NOT intended to be an all out race car. Tamiya is NOT following Yokomo's lead by releasing a tub version of their all out race car. This car is designed for the TCS racers around the world who run GT2/3
