  1. Thats what I say! The hobby should be affordable and fun! Just like back in the 80's when I first got my brat and learned to assemble it and getting it all put together. The first time I pulled the trigger with my 2 stick futaba radio I was blown away by the crazy power of that Mabuchi RS380 motor!
  2. anyone have any new pics of the new Montero wheelie? I loved the original as well as the honda city turbo!
  3. How many years was what? I bought the original sometime in 83, and the re-release in about 2007, they were going for about $150 but are now like $180. I bought one if the first Japan verisons with the crome plated chassis, with a oval plated sticker on the front of the box stating it had the crome plated chassis. I also bought another re-release brat and bought a crome chassis kit for it as well as some crome plated factory rims as well. I would love it if the brought back the King cab and hi Lux monster racer, even though I have a fully restored one of each with brand new unpainted bodies right now. I would love to buy them so I can drive them at the local track.

    Do you have a picture of this with a body on it? but how durable would this be as opposed to a 2wd traxxas slash?
  5. Well, I had already gotten my wish when the brat came back since it was my first Tamiya kit I bought as a kid with my own money for $69.95 at the local hobby shop! Bringing back the bruiser would be just a real bonus for me!!!! I don't see why they wouldn't since they made the metal parts come back on the sand scorcher, a friend of mine seems to think it would be at the 30 year mark that the bruiser would resurface.
  6. Does anyone know if Tamiya will re-release anything else other than whats on their website now? cars such as the King cab, monster racer, and the one I would really want, the Bruiser?

    small reliable ESC for FAV

    what about the Traxxas XL-5 ESC's? they are waterproof and have low voltage detection.
