It actually looks better in flesh I have to say. Not the over complicated mess I thought it was going to be. I think I will give this one a try at one point. It seems the caged upper is designed to accept different motor position without having to go to different top deck for each position. Hope the single belt design works as well as the double belt and we might have a winner here.

Is that a sealed drivetrain? Can't really tell from the pics.

It certainly offers some interesting options for weight distribution, but the single belt design will limit the amount of reliable power you can use, and the large, top-heavy chassis moulding will probably have a tweak in it.

A fun option for club racing - and thank you Tamiya for continuing to innovate!

Why is the motor so far out from the centerline??? I'm intersted in the car but that one thing is killing me.

Can't be any worse than a TA05. But I also see the potential for someone like Exotek to make a new chassis with a new motor mount closer to center like a tradition car while maintaining the optional motor positions. Maybe Tamiya did it so that it wouldn't outperform it's current flagship 419x. hehe

Yep, this thing is screaming at Exotek.

The motor does not strike me as particularly far from the center... In any case I fail to see how they could have brought it in any closer. Maybe a mm here and there, but with the diff pulleys offset to the right and a single belt layout, it's about as centered as it could be. Or am I missing something? Anyway. Interesting ideas but one of the ugliest TCs to date, without a doubt.
