  1. I'd also go GF01. Personally I find it a much more interesting chassis and should be fun to drive even with regular wheels.
  2. This one seems like it would be significantly less expensive to me. Less metal, no shock towers, only 2 shocks.. I'm looking at this thread: https://www.rc10talk.com/viewtopic.php?t=47441 The design is so basic with very few parts I really don't think they could get away with that same price.. You very well may be right, and in that case I won't bite.. But I'm still hoping
  3. Now this is cool.. I hope they release it for a decent price as I would be interested in getting one just out of curiosity for the crazy design.
  4. To be fair that TD4 box art which is still fairly recent looks pretty sweet..
  5. I use the same store for all my bearings they have almost any size but they have multiple listings with different quantities. 50 is usually the best deal but if I just need a few I'll buy a 10 pack. 5x11 - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/752209848.html?pdp_npi=4%40dis!USD!US %2411.90!US %2411.90!!!11.90!11.90!%402103080c17137511921685183eac51!53455846983!sh!CA!135893668!&spm=a2g0o.store_pc_allItems_or_groupList.new_all_items_2007521364961.752209848 Not quite as cheap as the ones you found but I've bought many times from them so I trust that the bearings will be good quality and also I won't get scammed.
  6. Never hurts to have extra, 5x8 and 5x11 are always useful for Tamiya kits!
  7. I use this guy and have been very happy with them: https://a.aliexpress.com/_mrHwidc
  8. I got excited for a new legendary series but after looking it up it seems that mechanically its 99% the same as the Optima so not much new here really..
  9. I'm referring to 380 for the gold pan. I hate to promote Tower but you can get an Egress for less than that after discounts. Not only it it a way more complex kit, but I would argue the quality and materials are better as well not to mention the presentation. I honestly doubt the plastics cost more. Exactly, so that leads me to believe that AE would want to take advantage of volume sales after having invested so much to get this into production. My prediction is that they release this under the "40th Anniversary" guise to capitalize on FOMO at a higher price and then re-re a standard version for the masses who are not willing to go that high. Best of both worlds from their side and they won't get flak because the 40th is still "special"
  10. Why would this cost almost 20% more than the clear though? I don't disagree that it's a good car, but it really does feel excessive for such a basic kit. Heck you can get an Egress for about the same price. I still want one but I'm hesitant because of the price. I'll either miss out or pick one up once we see a discount it if they're not selling. Can't help but feel that most buyers are considering this an investment and that AE would have made a lot more $$ selling a higher qty at $320.
  11. Yes you can, the small motor has a plastic adapter plate. Just omit that and you can screw in the large motor directly.
  12. That's why I don't want to pre-order. If it's in stock then I can pay with Paypal so there are no issues, but giving them carte blanche with my credit card is another story.. I'm at least glad to see that they have a coupon again, hopefully they saw a hit in sales when they removed them and have learned their lesson. Now they just have to sort out the inventory/pre-order mess.
  13. Tempted to try it on an Egress but I'm worried they'll screw up the pre-order.
  14. This is a great coupon! Thank you so much!
  15. MSRP of $589 is way too much IMO. It is a cool model though and I hope they will release a more accessible variant in the $300-400 range.
