Street price in Japan is right around 45000 Yen.. should be a little bit cheaper from some of the Hong Kong shops once they get there hands on them

Hi Sir Dave,

Do you know when Hong Kong shops are likely to get them.

Thank you.

Thumbs up

No to sure yet... but if we look at when the TRF503 was being sold at some of the shops over in Hong Kong... it would be a safe bet that it might be a week or a few days before the official release date in Japan ...Maybe 26th~31st of May if we are lucky...

I wonder how much flex the chassis will have That said, design-wise the car seems to tick all boxes for an up to date car out of the box and I can imagine this car has lots of potential.

Great that they included hard hex ball connectors and both gear and ball diffs.

It looks stunning and the changes made in all the rite places. I wished Tamiya would have changed the layshaft to a complete layshaft rather than a seperate idler gear and shaft again.

I sent a e-mail to EXOTEK today to see if they could make a solid alloy upper shaft like they have on the B4/B5 and RB5/RB6...
just waiting to see what they say

Default TRF201XR

Looks like Tamiya forgot to tell us about a updated TRF201XR kit

Sir Dave,

Is this a new separate kit in rear motor. If so is it longer than the XR kit that came out last year.

Good to see they released two new kits. The XR looks no different than the conversion kit. Good that you can now buy it as a complete kit. Not sure if I'll get the XMW? I couldn't get the XM working as well as a rear motor car on my home track, so for the expense its probably not worth it for the rare event I might attend that has a sugared track.
