Yeah, but you don't see many blokes lining up to take the butt-ugly chicks to the prom either ....
this very true, however you might find the butt ugly chicks as you put do not bother with proms.........
this is in another thread but I will put it here too as it is relivent:-
considering there now so many DT02 chassis on sale from Tamiya, where are all the spares ? some the hops ups are aslo becoming harder to find ! The red body shell is a nice edition to the HB. Even if it does look very toy'ish as other member have pointed out.
Most of the spares seem to be coming from people breaking kits, maybe a band wagon is there possibly 'mmmmm'
It is very clear why tamiya keep releasing DT02 kits, the DT02 class of racing is THE most popular in Japan. next to the DF03.
With all the parts changing colours for different kits you would have thought Tamiya would be on the ball with the spares! But no !
The white wheels from the super fighter GR, want those and the black wheels from the Red HB gota have those too.
Considering how Tamiya look at the car market and which cars they know they can sell they are very good at it. You have to remember their main market is actually their home country. NOT all the whinning collectors in 'other' countries !!!!!!!!!!!
The DT02 HB was a clear winner sales wise as soon as it was announced !
Easy money !
Clearly as Tamiya can see past the end of thier own nose, it makes them VERY good in what they do and how they do it.
