  1. I'm a huge fan of the Trackstar TS-D99X. I use one in my TT02b but have them in almost everything I have. They're quick and I've had no durability issues. They're about $28 from Hobbyking.
  2. The unpainted version is in stock at A Main Hobbies. Hopefully Tower will get their stock soon.
  3. They have worked great for me as well. They seem to go out of stock but then come back in stock randomly.
  4. What Facebook page did you post it to? I can't seem to find it.
  5. That is awesome. If you can, take some video of it running at Hot Rod. It would be awesome to see one on a US track.
  6. My curiosity got the better of me so I pre-ordered mine. Paid $235.49 out the door from Tower Hobbies. Going to build mine box stock as it seems like it runs pretty well that way. I plan a mild electronics setup with a Hobbywing 1060 ESC and a Tamiya Dirt Tuned motor. My TRF201 runs nicely on the same setup with a lipo. It will be run to see how they compare. I also have a ton of Associated 12mm hex wheels and am hoping they'll fit okay. I'm hoping these come in before summer hits!
  7. Tower Hobbies has the pre-painted version available for preorder for $275.10. Save $40-$50 with a coupon depending on your membership level. Tamiya 47482 $275.10
  8. I noticed on Tower Hobbies' website that there are 11 Tamiya kits available for pre-order that come with a Hobbywing ESC. I tried searching and didn't find any info on this. Anyone know why they would do this? Tamiya kits w/ Hobbywing ESC's
  9. What about a Grasshopper 2 Black Edition? Here in the US they are $110 and come with oil filled shocks. According to Google that should be about 80 pounds (sorry don't know how to do the pound sign).
  10. I'm an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher in an elementary school.
  11. The Fox came out around the same time the RC10 did. Tamiya probably quickly realized that the chassis design was nowhere near as competitive as the RC10 and that they needed to go another route.
  12. I have owned my TRF201 since 2013, which is the longest i've owned any RC Car. I still run it from time to time and recently added the TA06 gear diff which I love.
  13. I'm pretty sure IG, though it wouldn't surprise me if it doesn't end up on YT after.
  14. For those who don't follow Tamiya USA on Instagram...
