  1. @Hage C Get a set of fast eddy bearings. They are the best value for the money in the US https://www.fasteddybearings.com/tamiya-arocs-3363-6x4-classic-space-semi-truck-sealed-bearing-kit/
  2. Doesn't Tamiya still have Ford licencing? They released the Mustang GT4 on the TT-02 and made a 1/24 model kit fairly recently
  3. AE stopped with the B5 series IIRC.
  4. Thankfully metric screws are the norm now. The only manufactures I can think of that still use SAE/Imperial hardware are a few older Losi kits and Vanquish wheels. I've only came across them in older American brand cars
  5. #1: Proper scale crawler. I agree with most of the points made by @Mad Axand @Carmine A. While the CC-02 isn't bad from what I've seen, it has no features that would make me want to buy one. At least the CC-01 has the IFS going for it. Tamiya could totally make a rival to the RC4WD Trailfinder 2, but I don't think that is going to happen, and I'd say even less likely for a linked truck similar to a SCX10, TRX-4, Element, ETC. #2: RWD drift chassis. I'm very surprised that Tamiya does not make one given that R/C drifting is huge in Japan. Price it between the 3racing and Yokomo kits and include a body and you have a real winner. #3: Add steel pinions to kits. The brass ones are OK in my experience, but the aluminum ones are almost as useless as bushings to me. #4: Have Tamiya USA use the same price structure as other retailers (RCMart, Plaza Japan, ETC) so I can buy kit and parts in the US for a reasonable price.
  6. @FinnsllcI'd say something exceedingly rare, like a black edition 934 or an Edinger RC10
  7. I Don't know enough about that kit to give you a good answer, but I would do whatever feels right to you. If you want to keep it on a shelf in the box, that's great, but also is building it up and sending it to the moon. There is no wrong answer here.
  8. Picked up a new charger and a Losi Mini-T 2.0 from the hobby shop
  9. Figured I'd add my 2 cents here as one of the (presumably) younger members of this forum. While I personally drive all of my cars pretty hard except for my bigwig since it is much more fragile than my other cars, I can totally understand it for very rare models or ones that are hard to get parts for. If I had say, a Williams FW-07 or a Kyosho Vanning or the like, I would most likely run it a little bit to see how it drives out of curiosity. The one thing I don't understand is the people who keep them sealed in the box. I know they are super valuable, but at least take it out of the box. They are all toys and are meant to be used for fun and entertainment, which you can't get by keeping it in the box.
  10. Bigwig Re-Re has nylon wheels and so does my TT-02 Mazda 3 kit: Not 100% sure about other TT-02 variants. The Lunchbox and Midnight Pumpkin Wheels are ABS.
  11. Wow, Didn't know that. Not sure what will work then since those pack configurations are very uncommon. Maybe a small 2s Lipo would work?
  12. Any 6 cell Nimh battery will be perfect such as these: https://www.amazon.com/AWANFI-4200mAh-Battery-Connector-Associated/dp/B07V8651ZM/ref=sr_1_26?crid=36TFQE6QM3NSU&dchild=1&keywords=6+cell+7.2+volt+battery+pack&qid=1594903826&sprefix=6+cell+%2Cvideogames%2C186&sr=8-26
  13. No problem. For the CC-01 I can also recommend a Holmes Hobbies Crawlmaster sport 20t motor. It's a 5-slot motor so the speed is pretty close to a normal 45t motor and they have a very smooth startup and low end along with lots of torque. I have one in my CC-01 and it is absolutely perfect even with a TBLE-02s
  14. Looks Great! The included charger is very old so I would suggest getting a newer model such as this one: https://www.amainhobbies.com/protek-rc-prodigy-610ez-ac-dc-lihv-lipo-balance-battery-charger-ptk-8522/p696353 The radio is pretty modern and will get the job done.
  15. I'm going to put the motors first and list the cars that I would put them in: 17.5: GF-01, Manta Ray, M-03, TT-01 or TT-02 13.5 from GF-01: TT-01/2 21.5: Hotshot (I'd stay with a silvercan on this one) or Super Astute 16t: don't see much use for these The CC-01 will depend on how you want to use it. Street/rally use a silvercan is great, one of the 16 turns will make it fly. Trail/crawling use I'd go for a 45-55t motor I have no experience with the Dynahead so I can't give a solid recommendation. Hope this helps you out.
