  1. The CC02 is on my list of purchases. It has been pushed down the list a bit due to the Super Avante being released but I will get one eventually. I think I'm liking the Defender a bit more but I LOVE the Unimog. I wish they could figure out a way to make a functional PTO for it. I don't know why you'd need it, but it would be cool to see.
  2. I've already ordered the slipper and the DF03 dampers. I'm guessing I may also get the front cvds, but those will have to wait. I mean, you gotta space these orders out to stay safe.
  3. I'm thinking club racing. I mean, they made it out of a high performance plastic so it's sturdy. Then Tamiya is just doing the standard money making process by adding upgrades separately...alloy shocks, slipper clutch, etc. I'm sure they will release a version with everything which will be pricey but isn't part of the fun building it the way you like?
  4. Pitch conversion formula. D = Diametrical pitch (ie 32, 48 or 64 pitch) M = Module (ie 0.8, 0.6, 0.4) M = 25.4/D or D = 25.4/M
  5. I went through the same thought process last year. I bought both the re-re Bruiser and the clone version. I built the real one box art but the clone version I did more like the pictures your post. I wound up painting it red and used some RC4WD decals that are very similar to the original Toyota graphics of the late 70s/early 80s.
  6. Apparently, there are 44 container ships anchored outside the port of Los Angeles waiting to be unloaded. I ordered some furniture back in April. It was supposed to be delivered late July, now they are telling me late October. We'll see if that happens.
  7. Well, let us know how you like it. I used to run the MX-3s before the 2.4s came out. They were my favorite radios. I did buy a FlySky GT-5 recently. Works great.
  8. According to the TamiyaUSA Instagram Live, the screws for accessing the battery go into a captured steel nut. So, yay!
  9. Yeah, the electric screwdriver made me clench. I'm sure he did it to save editing time. Also, I think getting the slipper and installing it during the build might be a good idea...assuming it's available for the main release. I mean, gluing on the adjustment cap? This car looks like an incredible piece of engineering.
  10. It appears Tamiya USA is doing a step-by-step build on their Instagram stories. @tamiyausa They are on Step 1. So you haven't missed much if you weren't aware.
  11. I would buy it if it came with the a rear trailing arm suspension. That would be cool.
  12. I bought these for the ff01. They are period correct.
  13. So, I added one of the re-re front bulkheads to an old build and I noticed that it widens the front track by 2-3 mm. Did you notice the same? Suddenly, the upper rod lengths were too short and I had a massive negative camber gain.
  14. I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but do we know for sure we need a shorty servo?
