PS. The new NSX body is not available anywhere. Why are we outlawing a body that most racers own ( 2007 and older nsx body)
I'll take "ratios aren't differentials" for $100 Alex.

After that I'll take "Tamiya wants to sell some bodies " for $300.

The Gear rule is going to be good to me. But my days of sharing tech to get them to work are over, because I don't want to be the bad guy when the other racer can't figure it out. Maybe I should charge for consulting?

The Body rule should have been here all along. Adios NSX parade. Either way....Eventually everybody will come to a consensus about the second best body and run that.

NSX Concept Bodies are 'on order' at TowerHobbies currently.. I would imagine just a couple weeks before we see them.

Your M05 is going to be a hoot with an NSX on it.

That's just what I have been told, apparently I have been mis-informed...

I wanted to get confirmation from Fred before I started to look into it.

Regarding the Gear Diff....If all you need to do is use the 39T Ring gear with the TB-04 oil filled parts I'm willing to let that go, but I will have to verify it on our workbench first.

The Honda NSX 2007 and older have been discontinued for a while. Buying them from Hong Kong is not a viable option I want to endorse for any new or existing TCS racer. It's time we mix things up a bit and change the TCS landscape. If you own NSX older NSX bodies I suggest holding on to them. We may bring them back online in the future. For now it's OK to try something different.

The New NSX Concept GT body is coming shortly to a store near you.

Thanks for the update. I will be at Tamiya on Saturday if you want to see the diff and installation.

Dear NSX stockpiling TCS racer:

USGT drivers are always looking for NSX bodies. Your money will not be lost.

On further discussion of the topic it turns out that the teams other star driver Naoto Matsukura has also won the Tamiya Cup as have Hayato Matsuzaki, Serpents Marc Fischer and Kyoshos Christopher Krapp. Interestingly the only driver that would go on to drive professionally for Tamiya, Marc Rheinard, was only ever a runner up in the event.
Matsukura just joined TRF

Save some trouble.

The Jerk to your right at IIC had them. He put them In the second day of practice, They fit fine. Use the ring gear from the TB03 direct coupling. The Out drives from the same part are on the front of your 419.

My tb03 had them at the TCS finals last year. Most people liked the gear diff less than the ball diff.

Quick question though, how come Ebbro was always off limit also for gt2? It looks great and I think feels pretty similar to a nsx2007 with minor differences.
