  1. Just to comment on the ordering of parts for cars you don't have. I have that problem myself. Recently bought a King Hauler to match the tractor truck oil shocks I had ordered previously!! Always a good excuse to order a kit lol!
  2. LHS had told me they were working on this. I guess it was true! All the rere cars from Kyosho have been so we'll executed. I'm sure this will be the same!
  3. I'm excited either way. I'd love to see something like a Trailfinder 2 or CMX. I think Tamiya would have a greater chance of success in that niche vs competing with the likes of Axial, Traxxas, and Associated.
  4. I don't have any information on the release but have come close multiple times to ordering myself. I would urge patience, some of the rerelease kits were delayed and proved well worth the wait.
  5. I picked up a 2019 Kraton myself on Friday. It is MASSIVE!! Still figuring out batteries myself but can't wait to try it out!
  6. I actually sold something. Not super excited but it had to happen. I have way too many cars, all mostly unbuilt so it was time to move something along (plus I have an Arrma Kraton on the way). I need to sell a couple more but my Tamiya cars never do well on eBay and I hate taking a heavy loss on them so I will choose carefully.
  7. My son launched ours into the mailbox last year and clipped the rear wheel, breaking the axle at the pin. That was enough to do it lol!! I think the silver can was still in it at the time, but possibly running a Tamiya Lightly Tuned motor.
  8. Ouch!! Your fault or weakness in design? Kicking around one of these vs a Granite BLX.
  9. Depending on price I would be interested in a set of rear arms. Two if the price is right.
  10. Yes, that issue has crossed my mind multiple times!! I have two rere Optimas and a Javelin so I may end up buying the gold parts kit and building one from one of those.
  11. My favorite of all the box art. Such an imposing stance. Picked one up myself this week.
  12. Pretty good day today, trying to make these my last kits for a while so I went out with a bang. Mountain Rider and Turbo Optima.
  13. So I've mentioned in multiple different threads in the past that my LHS is excellent. Well, he went above and beyond on this one! I was going to pass on the Turbo Optima but he called me last week and said that he could get me a box autographed by the designer if I wanted one of the kits. I bit and picked up the car today and sure enough it's autographed by Akira Kogawa! The contact at Kyosho even put it in a plastic bag to preserve the autograph. I don't know that I'll ever build this but I will take great pride in owning it.
  14. Shipping on kits can be expensive from HK. I often check the website and eBay to see if there is a difference. Sometimes one method works out cheaper than the other. But I will say, I ordered an Egress from RCMart on Saturday night and it was to my house by the next Saturday! I have used RCMart, Stella, and RC Jaz and have not had problems with any of them.
  15. Sorry, that is what I meant, the non-pro version, not the vintage. You're right though, it reminds me of a hornet too!
