On Road version ??? hmmm ... like touring u mean ?? Coz this TB01 is THE go - anywhere rally car and i can prove u that ( refer pg 97 of Radio Control Car Action mag .[ Aug 2K ]). I have one with the Subaru ' 99 Rally Champion body and im racing it with the other TC3 and HPI RS4 here . Of coz , i ' d changed the tires and the shocks . http://www.rccaraction.com/ubb/wink.gif : cool :

Ok , i know which one u meant . No need to be so serious . http://www.rccaraction.com/ubb/wink.gif Just for comparison , The new TA04 is not reviewed yet which been rumored for a long long time already . The parts are there but not on the Track Test . Same goes to the TB01 , its even newer than TA04 . All you need are the TG10 parts , LIGHTER parts and stronger . For the time being , Only the propeller shaft which is replaced by carbon and on July release , Aluminium ; the suspension mount and on June release the RC TB01 0 . 4 Spur gear 72T and the Raybrig NSX 2000 body are really meant for the TB01 ; the rest are still shared with the TG10 . AND TG10 is ONROAD , ok .

slipknot : the tb01 touring car with the raybrig nsx 2000 kit comes with an aluminium prop shaft ( there is a carbon option ), lightweight gears , a lowered ride height ( different shock settings ) AND most importantly , is 130gms lighter than the rally tb01 ....
the nsx body comes with a lexan wing instead of the usual plastic wings like most tamiya .. at last tamiya realises that their moulded wings are heavy !

red20 : sometimes , not all hop up parts are lighter .. aluminium is heavier than plastic .

IMHO , the tb01 TC is a very good touring car , i have a converted rally car with the carbon propshaft , lightweight gears and so forth .... its fast , but on my local track , i really wonder how can the raybrig handle as when i followed its settings , the car was too tail happy with a 13turn motor ... maybe its okay with a stock motor !
