they are supposed to be the "top of the line" of tamiya`s shaft driven touring cars. they have pretty good specs, but i haven`t seen them shine to the racing part yet. oil shocks, ball diffs, 4wd, alloy shaft, fully adjustable suspension, relatively low-weight [relative to the tt01] and average-good balance of weight distribution. good price. i have no idea about the steering response though. i might get one for myself next year...

They're the better side of the Shaft Driven tamiya line up. Actually, from all the 4WD shaft driven tamiya cars, I think the TB-02 is probably the best, since it's racing spec. It's got ball diffs STOCK, unlike the TL-01, TT-01, and TB-01(which are all the 4WD shaft driven tamiya cars i know of, aside from the TB-02...), which have gear differentials, but can be upgraded to ball diffs. Also, I THINK you can get a carbon fiber chassis for it, i'm not sure. I may be mistaken with the TB-01, but either way, it's just much better than it's predecessor, the TB-01, and also the other tamiya shaft driven cars.

i guess it can as long as you remount the receiver and ESC positions. haven`t tried that though [since i don`t have one yet]....

It doesn't really matter. Like people said before, the TB-02 isnt the top of the line Tamiya, but it is far superior to most cars in Tamiya's lineup.
