Rest we’re gon na have a look on and it’s this one. Okay, so what’s the story about this car, so this car it’s a vintage – i guess Music and it’s in pretty good shape, i would say: it’s been used, but it’s in good shape, uh bought from a guy in japan. I think – and why did i buy this one? Well, i guess you already know that since we are selling the heading of this video, but the reason i bought this one is because i need it to complete this one. So this is the very limited edition from full option. The tamaya egress trf also known as the jamie booth egress. So this kit is produced in 16, plus the prototype so 17 kits in total. All the parts are based on replicating or yeah replicated from the original parts, so david in full option actually got to borrow the the jamie booth, egress, of course, from jamie boothen and to replicate all of these parts and the prototype car was produced together with jonathan Who built the first one and tested it and yeah? So this is a pretty rare kit and i would say, it’s very sought after, but i haven’t built it yet. I haven’t come to that stage yet, but this one will be built. So i guess we could call this part one of my cigars for these. There probably will be some build videos coming along, as also for building this kit and of course we will have a better look onto the car once the kit is done or the build is done.
So i guess i could talk a little about a little bit about this egress, the tamiya egress trf, so tamaya developed special parts for the trf team to get egress to drive in the competitions. Another thing we could say about this is that this is kind of the missing link between the egress and the top force, or actually mentor, manta ray but let’s, say top force. So this this development they did on the egress, actually kind of resulted in the end of the manta ray and the top force. So but enough of that so let’s just have a look inside the box and see what’s all the fuss about. First, we get a note from full option describing a little bit about the history of the car and how he replicated the parts. Then we have the manual showing uh step by step on how to put the car together. Of course, as you can see, it’s not the same as a tamiya manual, but i guess this one is more than good enough for the conversion. Kit and i’m actually happy that there is a manual so yeah, it’s, very good, so that’s the manual now it’s time to have a look into the box. So let’s start with the first package. As you can see, i guess you can recognize some of this stuff. Actually, from the top force, so it’s very similar in the second bag, there is this special cnc parts. The blue ones is delirian.
I think it’s called yeah so that’s for the front suspension. The third bag contains the parts needed for making the rear suspension, and you can see the suspension, arms they’re, quite like the ones on the top floors or the same kind of design. Then so, then we have the special made lower deck with this cool engraving within it and the front shock mount tower and the rear one Music and the last bag. It contains the full option decal and what i think must be a full option: keychain tag and some eclipse. Okay. So we had a look into the box, but i think we should have a look on to the car as well it’s, a very creative color scheme. In this car and um to the trained eye, you can probably see something wrong with the damper tower from temper tower. As you can see here, the the tower is actually on the wrong side of the mount, so the dampers goes a little bit forward. The the front universal seems to be in pretty good shape, so that’s just excellent. I must say i prefer this uh non shiny carbon fiber. Look instead of the gloss one Music yeah, so the car seems to be in pretty good shape, or at least i thought so until i saw this, the plate is actually bent. So i think i have a new one, so that’s okay, so we had a quick look on my egress and my full option.
Trf egress kit and, as i mentioned, it’s gon na, be a build series of this in the future and we’re gon na have a closer look on to the car. Once it’s done this kit, i think it’s so awesome and the fact that i didn’t know about the jamie booth car and how special it was just before they were talking about replicating this kit. It was um, it was mind blowing and, as you will see in a later video actually before i even know knew about this i was thinking about. I was thinking about the evolution from the egress to the top force myself. So i kind of made a special thing just to symbolize that evolution, but that we’re gon na have a look on in a later video, so yeah, i think that’s it for now.
