  1. Yup on the drivetrain. It'll happily accept brushless with bearings and a steel pinion
  2. #tamiyadoesntcareabouttheusmarket or at least that's the usual refrain 😂
  3. I'd like to throw jugg tires into the mix, though they're not recent at all
  4. Dear Tamiya, please release the TXT driveline as a kit in the same way you did the TLT-1 axles. Thanks in advance and signed: Sayer.
  5. Does Tamiya fulfill domestic interests though? With other manufacturers now offering more capable vehicles and scale appearance getting better and better (and more of them being released in kit version) is the Japanese market still shackled to Tamiya's quirky offerings?
  6. Lol And then they call it the "Black Edition" wait...
  7. Yup. That second pic in my last post is an rc4wd swb trail finder that's gonna have the rubbish axles swapped for jugg 2 axles ( once I source internals) and possibly a body spliced together out of 2 different versions of Blackfoot if I don't just use the proline on it now. Way easier ways to get a scale looking monster truck but 🤷🏾‍♂️
  8. No problem with RTR here, but I think I'm good for building 1 of 1 vehicles out of bits. Sometimes you just want to drive something without screaming at your tools. I would also argue, that in my experience, until that flat brimmed cohort started backflipping their cars over houses for impressions, john and Jane Q public would just think you were some sort of emotionally stunted child playing with toys at the level of the trucks in my first pic. I promise you they do not know the difference. The amount of New Bright ads I've been sent because "You like RC cars right?"
  9. I too have found some of the complaints very "All I did was flog it with a golf club for only 15min and it broke! Trash!"
  10. Same. Got kinda bored of the same 6-10 kits being discussed, and then the resto of a 1:1 stole all my extra money. Thought I was out for good (though wasn't inspired to sell) Moved house recently and both packing and unpacking managed to reignite the spark.
  11. Didn't I read somewhere that the cage was adjustable?
  12. I met him in this thread and I was heartbroken anyway. Munchy forever.
  13. I mean I kind of get it, but also I have 3 custom juggernaut based trucks and boxes/bags of parts, because for a while there rcrecycler on eBay seemed to be parting these trucks out exclusively. Don't much care what the seller's motivation is since they're guaranteed to be selling to someone more hobby minded (who else would buy assorted bits of 20+ year old obsolete rc?)
  14. Thanks! Original build thread is here: (just had to fix all the images)
