  1. I had a stock TNX and absolutely loved it. Started and ran every time which is much more than I can say for my TMaxx. Looking forward to this one.
  2. I use Anderson. With the crimp tool they work super easy. I always feel like I should go back to Dean's or switch to xt60 but I'm pretty happy with the ease of use of the Anderson's and can't bring myself to do it. I have an Arrma Kraton 6s NIB and I'm not sure I trust the Anderson connectors to that kind of amperage.
  3. Couldn't agree more on Rivera. For the benefit of a bunch of my friends I hope Browns ownership sees it that way too, they deserve a winner after so many bad years.
  4. Off topic but it gets much worse than being stuck as a Panthers fan. I'm in Ohio so my choices are Bengals or Browns. The two pillars of NFL dysfunction. I was a Bengals fan for years but it finally got to be too much so I'm pretty much avoiding them until Mike Brown is (hopefully) forced to sell.
  5. Can I ask where the engine models came from?
  6. Off of Tamiyablog. Very curious on this one, new part number, the II I'm thinking means they have updated some portion of the diff? It recall complaints regarding the original hop up coming loose so wonder if that was addressed. One thing is for sure, they need to do another run of Fighting Buggys.
  7. I agree, type S with blue bits. I've got to say I'm interested to see it.
  8. I've got my eye on one. I had an RC18 way back when and really had a lot more fun than I had expected. Curious to see how you like it.
  9. In reality I don't need anything special. Just something for what will most likely be a light runner that will be stiffer than the stock setup. That Rogue Elements item is super cool!
  10. Thanks for the info on that design Twinset. Interesting to find how the design originally came about!
  11. Who has the best aftermarket chassis currently? I have an older Radshape which is beautiful but they don't seem to be around anymore. I also bought one of these: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F221996309178 in the past and was very unimpressed. Cuts were uneven and sharp. Not sure if I got a bad one or what. So what else is available and worth the cost?
  12. Couple of old racers super cheap... https://www.tamiyausa.com/blog/tamiya-2019-end-summer-sale/
  13. I know that this is getting a bit of topic with the World's discussion, but I'd really like to know the whole story on those. I agree, the RC10 Classic was severely under produced, then they turned around and made seemingly 10 million world cars. What is strange to me is it's almost like they panicked when it didn't fly of the shelves (I'm sure pricing, trans issues contributed) and started discounting very quickly. Think about something like the Avante 2011, if I recall correctly, they were still relatively available in 2016-2016. Tamiya didn't freak out and blow those out. It's a shame, I wish they were still available, especially considering that just about all the period competition is currently readily available. I made a big mistake selling 2 spare World's cars and now only have 1 NIB and 1 opened Classic.
