    Super Champ re-release - Fighting Buggy

    I've been away from the forums for about a year, came back to this fantastic news. My dad bought be a super champ second hand when I was a kid, we both knew nothing about RC cars and when the electronics gave up we didn't know how to fix them. I didn't even know or understand what the car was. It was only when I started buying the kits as an adult that I remembered the super champ. I've been waiting for this re-release for years. WOOHOO!

    UK Customs Charges

    Hi folks, I ordered a RSR Porsche (GT01) from hong kong. Got it cheaper than in the UK and thought it would arrive ok as all my parts usually come from Hong Kong. However got a letter today from parcel force asking for £35.31 VAT and £8 handling charge. Does this amount sound right? The car only cost £68 plus postage so £35.31 vat sounds excessive to me. Has anyone got kits sent from abroad without incurring any charges? I'd like to know if this is really common as I'll know in future to just buy in the UK. Keith
  8. Can anyone recommend a 7.4v lipo to fit the buggy champ? Thanks Keith

    Super Champ Release

    The rough rider was re-released on its 30th birthday -2009, same for the sand scorcher -2010. The super champ was released in 1982 so 2012 is 30 years, but so far there is no mention of a re-release. It was my first proper rc car as a child, I no longer have it, so I'm really hoping they re-release it!

    Just pray that they re-re the super champ. 2009 = 30th anniversary of the buggy champ, and a re-re 2010= 30th anniversary of the sand scorcher, and a re-re 2012 will be the 30th anniversary of the super champ...... PLEASE MR TAMIYA!
