I'm sure it's a tub of some kind right?

Recently it was a tub version

TA04 is close to the TRF414, you could fit carbon decks on it to get close to the 414.

TA05 was inspired by the 415 but had a centre mounted motor.

TA06 was quite different, and a bit over complicated for a race car.

I just hope it's light and tough

Hoping for a narrow tub chassis with short shocks. Maybe something similar to a TA05 v2? That would be nice. Of course then we would have to wait for the carbon bits to come in so that I can race this on carpet.

I'm very interested in how this one will be like. Hopefully a mix between ta05v2 and 419 and good enough to dethrone the age old Ta05 and Tb03 in TCS.

I was hopping for a design similar to TA06 but with the rear being belt driven but apparently not.

I don't know, there are quite a few nice things with that mock up. The ability to move the motor is good for a club level car.

I always liked my TA05 ms and TA05 with the motors being more towards the middle of the car, it helped on the smaller tracks I raced. Being able to move between different positions is interesting. As is the single belt.

At least it's different enough to my 419 to make me want to have a closer look.

Single belt? Like the XXX-S?

Yep, reminds me of a XXXs/M05 mix mash...we'll see. I'll stick with my 05R for now!

Dang! I just got scooped! I was working on a single belt design. Luckily, it seems Tamiya went (again) for tradition rather than innovation.

Meh. Another overcomplicated car for the masses rather than a proper design for a purpose.

Or the many Kawada cars (about three I can remember) and perhaps others I can not remember. Actually more like the Kawada cars than the Losi. The Losi was very innovative.
