Default Old style suspension!

Don't forget the old style suspension is a lot more durable than the LW for the Evo. This chassis will probably be presented as a kit for novice to intermediate racers, so this suspension will take a beating, just like the 04! Of coarse up to a certain point!
So the price should also reflect a first time buyer who doesn't want to spend a lot of money up front!!!!
But I'm sure with all the hop-ups later on that you could imagine to run GT-2 at TCS!!

You know, the funny thing is that I seldom see any novice/intermediate racer run these cars--most people just go stright to a pro kit...

Well, part of reason is becase the racing rule. Unless you do TCS style limitation, otherwise, without model/hopup limitation, everyone will just go straight to pro-kit for racing.

But in reality, TCS is the only racing series I know to have such well designed model/hopup limitation to fit all range people. Kyosho Cup is either all the way top, or all the way down. They need to have an intermediate level to race with. But again, only Tamiya has so many models and so many accessaries that allow them to do TCS.

Put everyone under the same "pro style" racing rule is no good for this hobby.

Well-with TamiyaUSA snapping up all these really good racers and a formidable US team-a two diff belt car cannot be too far away. I mean-if I were to race a Tamiya on foam tires for the carpet season-I would go for the 415 and use a Yokomo diff. set-up.

Lets hope this car is a bit of a test bed for a dual diff belt car. Now I said bit!!! So soon they will have the 416 that was tested on 28mm foam tires and has a Tamiya front diff available..

I don't think so, the way they've repositioned the belts looks like it will more than likely use some variation of the TA-04 diff. And because of the offset, it won't work in the 415. But according to a little bird, Japan is working on the problem

Now-you should be getting on my case for suggesting Tamiya make a flagship carpet foam tire car Eat it!!

I was going to mention the fact that Tamiya could care less about foams, but any TRUE Tamiyaphile and not a Johnny-come-lately already knows that

Default Found magazine!

I found the magazine at Ultimate Hobby here in So.Cal. You can definitely see where the spur and the pinion meet for the front and rear belts. It's more towards the front of the chassis. Dang it almost looks like a Losi drivetrain!! They mounted the speed control behind the motor! Very strange!!
