Its been a while. I hope you are all in fine form I have been busy with working a new job and having a kid too; 8MontholdKid. I got a bit dissolutioned with all my Tamiya models breaking on me -all my fault- might I add! As I wanted more speed, more power and bigger and bigger jumps LOL! So I bought an eRevo to take all the punishment I wanted to dish out. However, although massively capable, the revo is characterless and has no charisma. I have really missed building Tamiya kits, and my restored Monster Beetle -which I sold on ebay to get the revo.
I see the Sand Scorcher has been re-released and I have asked 28yoWife if I could have one...seems to have the green light
As a relatively new guy to Tamiya, I don't remember this one from the 1st time around. My first question is whether this kit is good value for money? It seems a little pricey, although the metal parts must add some robustness to the package. I am planning to use it on grass only, in summer with a sport tuned motor...no punishing this time!
I see the Rough rider comes in at a similar price. Any major differences except looks?
Also. Does anyone think that the Monster Beetle will ever be re-released? -Go on, humour me!
