Re: Audi/Tamiya R/C advice needed!

As a nut that owns over 20 R/C cars I think I can help you.  To my
knowledge no Audi TT is available yet.  Having said that, the TT should
prove popular and a body will most likely be forthcoming, either from
Tamiya or an after-market company.

Tamiya RC Cars are all built on a fairly standard chassis.  The wheels,
suspension and tires change from car to car, but the wheelbase remains
constant.  If you take a look at their website you'll see that they have
about 2 or 3 chassis lengths for street racers and all the body shells are
made to fit one or the other.

Your A4 should be interchangable with their Mercedes C-Class racer body,
BMW 3 series racer and many more.
