Default TRF416

The car will be appearing at the Tokyo Hobby Show next month, along with the TRF415 MSXX MRE and the TRF501X WCE. It looks quite LiPo friendly. Discuss anything you want on this chassis here.

Pics from RedRC.net:

Official info:
"In recent years, world-class on-road R/C touring car race events have encouraged the use of brushless motors in conjunction with event-controlled tires. To achieve success under such conditions, a fine balance must be achieved between handling and tire wear. It is with this in mind that Tamiya designers developed the concept of the brand new TRF416 chassis.


About the Model
1/10 scale assembly kit R/C model of the TRF416 chassis.
New 2.25mm lower deck design emphasizes simplicity, while the 2mm upper deck has been lengthened.
Front and rear bulkheads feature the same width while everything about the chassis down to the screw locations has been designed for optimum symmetry for better roll characteristics.
In order to obtain maximum traction, both the motor and the center shaft positions have been moved back to shift more weight to the rear of the car.
Drivetrain features front direct-drive, center direct-drive, and rear ball diff.
Front and rear uprights equipped with 1050 size ball bearings.
37T pulleys for front and rear, while an 18T pulley is installed in the center.
R/C system, body, tires, motor, ESC, battery & charger separately required.


ELECTRIC KITS REQUIRE:
(unless stated differently above)
Radio: 2-Channel with servo(s)
Battery: 6-cell flat with standard Tamiya connector
Charger: AC/DC timed or peak for 6-cell battery
Paint: PS for Polycarbonate/TS for ABS
Misc. Items: Building and track equipment"

The TRF416 is totally different from the 415 series. The motor mount is separated as you can see from the pic Sim600 posted. The TRF415 MSXX MRE is a good car also i might say. Tested out last week. Impressive!

Nice find, Flam3boy. The 416 at the Tokyo Hobby show turned out very different from the earlier pics on tamiyausa.com

I found some pics from rc-japan.de
Looks like the new trend is to have the spur between the belts. The driveshaft looks like it's labelled '45'.
