View Full Version : TA04!

Hello! Tamiya's website has some information about the new TA04 PRO. It looks great with the new design. The new car will be released in August (2 more months!). Does anyone know how much the price will be? Will Tamiya offer a TRF version soon (like, real soon!)? BTW, I have a TA03R with a lot of Hop-ups, so I am excited about the new car!

i was hoping July, as previously rumoured. i guess an extra month is alright. I hope my TAO3F will hold up by then.

yeah that car looks HOT!!! it looks like Tamiya is back into serious touring car business again http://www.rccaraction.com/ubb/smile.gif and the TA04 will come out in the Pro Version. so its as close to TFR as it gets. and about the TA03 how is that car? i was about to get it until i found the TC3. how does it stack up compared to lets say RS4 or TC3?

With the right setup and gearing, the TAO3 can be a very competitive car. But you made a good decision getting the TC3 cuz of the tunability of the suspension and the efficiency of the shaft drive system. The TAO3 is showing it's age, so you did the right thing getting the TC3. The TAO4 might be a whole different story. 2nd and 6th place at the Reedy race is not too shabby.
