** 20th Aug Update, Official Tamiya 418 pics here for first Tamiya Released CAD pics and more info

It's getting to that time of year for a new TRF car and Tamiya have announced the TRF418.

New features

  • New chassis plate (has front slits not seen on the angle of this pic)
  • New Bulkheads (lower than orig 417)
  • New suspension geometry (C-Hubs and arms are also slightly shorter)
  • New stabilizer attachments to allow the chassis to flex more (inset arms)
  • 20t centre Pulley

The car was at the regionals last week with TRF in attendance, it got the fastest laptime at the circuit in the final's 

Here are pics of the Tamiya cars racing at that day, so under one or all of these should be the TRF418

**DISCLAIMER** The following pic is NOT the 418 but it might give ideas on what the final car will be ** update this is a version of another testing shot at a race in Europe. If you look at the car it has different C-Hubs and suspension arms, along with a new motor mount (like the Yokomo BD7)
