you can use the tb-02 in the gt2 and gt3 class of tamiya cup


use the evo 3 in gt1

You could... if you were American.



Australian TCS (like Japan TCS) did not have GT2 & GT3, we only had GT1. The other classes were F1 & Stock; Mini was a "demo" class only. Only the 3 main classes had the Japan trip first prize.


North American TCS is run as a series of races throughout the year, at various different tracks. Australian TCS is a one weekend winner-take-all. Both sets of winners only got to send 3 guys each to Japan.


Doubt if TB-02 will be allowed in stock if TCS is run in 2004 as TB-01 wasn't. Stock in 2003 only allowed TL-01 and TT-01 and all their XB RTR cousins.





Cars amongst the GT1 crowd were very varied, most were TA04s and about a dozen EvoIIIs out there.


Cooke came 2nd with a (borrowed!) TA-04R with some blue & SSG hopups. Zarby took honours with his Surikarn. Tim in 3rd ran a 414M2.

must say the XAVAVI nismo is the best shell on the TB02...

the others look like re realeses of other tamiya bodies.

well its down to matter of likes off the body i guess...id go the nismo
cause it looks cool, and the nsx also cause it looks cool, id say the
new XAVAVI nismo would handle well, look at the size of the wing, how
low it is, new design body, its not a square front like the
others...its more round and sloped bonnet..

Anyone here actually *run* the new Skyline yet?!?



Its a completely new R34 shell, not a recycle job and
different to the Zexel R34 shape of before.

Tamiya sez "newly shaped R-34 body that has a more pronounced slope that should offer the racer more steering when racing"
