I'd love to see it make some inroads on the foam tire world.
I can see Tamiya making a thicker chassis and upperdeck to appease us Americans, but that's about it. Although, I wouldn't be surprised if they did nothing at all since foam tire racing on carpet is such a small market for them globally. We Americans need to give up foam and just race rubber tires on carpet like the rest of the world.
