  1. You made the perfect choice... here is a good review of the CG while you wait for it to arrive... (I hope it is ok to post it here...) https://www.bigsquidrc.com/tamiya-comical-grasshopper-wr-02cb-review/
  2. If you want something that the kids can bash without the fear of breaking something I think that the comical grasshopper is a good choice. It has better performance than the Lunchbox/Pumpkin. The CVA shocks make it a better runner and Much more durable. (Thick lexan body vs ABS, strong body mounting points against the Lunchbox and Pumpkin weak body mounts.) The gearbox is bulletproof in eighter trucks. And kids love the comical style. The comical hornet and frog are good too but the rear wing is a weak point on both. The comical grasshopper is a speed tank.
  3. Sometimes, when I pull full trigger on the radio and try to wheely one after another, the car just stopps and the ESC beeps than it runs just fine after a few seconds. I use it with the stock motor and four AAs. Is it just the normal power lack that some of you wrote? I use TBLE-02s esc with the lipo cutoff turned off...
  4. The Leo 2A6 is my favorite build but the so many glueing can be quite frustrating for a modeller. My longest build was a CC01. Put it togeather one time and then started to hop it up... took 2+ years. I sold it to avoid bankruptcy...:)
  5. Starting in order from most challenging; Abrams Full Option 1/16 Mercedes Arocs Tipper truck Mercedes 1850L truck Bruiser Re-Re High-Lift trucks (Hilux, F-350, Tundra) TXT-2 Agrios Clod Buster CR-01 Land Cruiser CC-02 Mercedes G The tractor trucks and high lift trucks are even more challenging with the optional multi function units but I listed them without it.
  6. Maybe the SW-01 Lunch Box Mini is Tamiyas answer to this question... perfect size and performance for holidays. Good for indoors and outdoors.
  7. Sell them all and buy a Full Option tank instead, it will keep you busy all year...
  8. It seems to be a fact based on a lot of other Tamiya users mentioning this here and there on other forums as well. Clear plastic parts are more brittle and breaks more easily. I think they're more for show than bashing around.
  9. Nice but clear parts are always more fragile... but I like the red parts coming with the RTR version.
  10. Yes, it is the same one. Costs 15.09 Euros https://tamico.de/Tamiya-Batteriehalterung-4xAA-T3-01-Dancing-Rider But you can also buy an old receiver battery holder because it is the same 4 AA style and fits perfect. You only have to change the plug to Tamiya connector. Don't ask me where, but I guess almost every LHS has it. That one looks like this on the attached picture:
  11. I'm using mine with the Tamiya AA adaptor. Bought it from Tamico.
  12. Hi Guys, I used to have full op Leopard 2 tanks but sold them ages ago... Now I'm planning to build an Abrams but to be honest I don't really care about multi function controls. My plan would be to buy a display version and make it RC. Because I only want the tank to run without any other functions, (like older Tamiya motorized versions...) I would choose cheaper electronics for it. Now the only problem is that the Abrams like Tamiya modern tanks uses one motor for rideing and the other only for turning. This way I can't use a cheaper version electronics like the Sherman DMD or so... But I don't want to spend a lot of cash on the Abrams electronic boards. I found out that connecting two ESCs to the receiver could work. One for the cruising motor and the other for the turning motor. Could it work if I disconnect the + and ground cable from one ESC? And of course zero out the break function to work properly. What do you think? Thanks in advance, Daniel
  13. TXT-2 all the way.... fun on any terrain, great build and HUGE!!! Quite durable but not the way like Traxxas trucks. And later you can buy a lot of nice hopups for it. The stock wheels and tires are not so nice but with TXT-1 wheels and pickup body its a beauty. Also TXT is the most authentic replica of real monster trucks... Tundra is a nice build but gets boaring on trail. Brat is a nice truck but I always found ORV chassis annoying while building but its only my personal oppinion
