  1. Anybody notice this on the Top Force listing on RCMart: Pleasenote that this item is on Back Order (Limited Quantity), the next ETA is End November 2019. ETA is subject to change due to manufacturer delays. Back Order Special Offer: Free 1 Set of Tamiya Top-Force 2017 High Capacity Damper Set #47358 Promotion Period: 1/09/2019 – 30/11/2019 http://www.rcmart.com/tamiya-47350-force-2017-p-73602.html Seems like a crazy good deal if this is truly the case.
  2. Plenty of Hop-Ups to make it worth the price! Sorry, US Only. International shipping is just too much to make it worth it. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F233331739550
  3. Was not expecting plastic frame rails. Interesting selection for sure.
  4. I have seen that issue before on the web with Yota 2 axles. Seems like the solution is to helicoil the axle. Another alternative would be to replace the axles with scx10-2 units and JEC racing leaf mounts.
  5. JAnderson from Tamiya did one years ago that was in RC Car Action. Can't remember the year, just remember drooling over it I'm my younger days. You may be able to find info on that?
  6. I really hope this means Losi Re-releases to come. I always had Associated, so never had the chance to experience a (now) vintage Losi. https://www.bigsquidrc.com/gil-losi-jr-returns-to-losi-tlr/
  7. I just picked one up the other day. Got offered a great price and couldn't resist, but worried it's going to blow through $60 of tires every time I have it out. Glad to hear a good review though!
  8. I think the improvements in materials while keeping very true to the originals make the rereleases the choice for sure.
  9. I hate selling kits because I always lose too much money, but as soon as I saw this I started wondering what I could sell to raise some funds. I have a D110 TRX4 and absolutely love that truck. I'll be interested to see how they handle the third locking diff, would be neat (though require new TQ radio features) to lock/unlock all three independently.
  10. Wow!! https://m.traxxas.com/news/new-mercedes-benz-g63-6x6
  11. This is the segment that I think they have the best chance of success. Smaller than SCX10 and the like. Seems to go directly against the MST CMX, which by all accounts is an excellent chassis in it's own right so could be tough to beat. I'm interested in more details as they come out.
  12. Now I want to see more! I'm a sucker for scale kits.
  13. Look like rear shock mounts to me.
  14. 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!
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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!
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. Ouch!! Your fault or weakness in design? Kicking around one of these vs a Granite BLX.
  22. Depending on price I would be interested in a set of rear arms. Two if the price is right.
  23. 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.
  24. My favorite of all the box art. Such an imposing stance. Picked one up myself this week.
  25. 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.
