Have you seen this on fibre lyte website? Says it's based on a TRF415 but i pretty sure its a buggy version of a TB Evo5

Interesting that, does definitely look like an evo 5.. 🤔🤔

dont see much doing with them really, or maybe I’ve missed the surge of them, not sure why, seems a decent chassis and not dissimilar to the evo 6, which there’s one at the club sometimes.. thou guess the absence of gear diffs is possibly a issue.

think it it is a bit short, on my evo 5 the suspension block is mounted onto the chassis, then a bit more chassis for the bumper plastics.. :(

It's modded, you can see an L-shaped bar mounted to arb holder. Bumper mount is just cut off.

By steering, it looks like Evo4. I think I've seen it before.

Edit: i found some pictures of evo4 based buggy, maybe it's earlier version.

Anyone on the hunt for a Tb evo 5 ? Possibly letting mine go, it’d be back to standard kit build but with trf dampers or gold low frictions.

what would the going rate be for such a item?

Sorry to see it's up for sale. Hope it goes to a good home. I'm sure it will.

Yeah hope so..  not really had any interest as such. So may not be going anywhere in a hurry

hard to value as never see them come up for sale.. I’d settled at 225 based on sales of other evos in the range but must be a undesirable chassis as very little to work with..

 

maybe one day, a evo 7 will be with me.. just need a medium sized lottery win to sort me out! Haha
