    Is this the same Tamiya club??

    Richard Kohnstam was the local distributor, all the Tamiya kit boxes I have from the '80's have the RICO sticker on them, happy times ; )

    2019 Supra in Tamiya's pipeline?

    Could be a 1:24th static kit, although I think almost all RC touring cars have been done as 1:24th statics first.

    Given these and unsure what chassis thet are ?

    2nd that, TA01, great cars. Apart from bearings and an ESC I would replace the "coat hanger" drive shaft and motor mount if you plan to put in anything hotter than a sport tuned.

    New Toyota Yaris Rally Car?

    I would settle for something like a TT-02RA; long CVA's with frp towers, turnbuckles, ball races, lexan dustcover & foams for the chassis tub, rally blocks and a torque tuned motor. Priced the same as the drift spec cars would seal the deal.

    Cheap off road rally car?

    Why not buy a cheep TA02 rolling chassis from eBay? There's normally one for sale between £20-£30. Have fun fixing it up, put on the rally body of your choice, run it as hard as you want- spares and hop-ups are cheap and readily available as it's still a current model. Ground clearance and suspension travel are respectable if you build it with long shocks and it's fairly capable off road, being based on the Manta Ray.
