  1. Anybody found anywhere to preorder in the UK yet? I think it looks amazing and if the BBX is heading in this direction it is going to be a cool year for us RC fans!
  2. I think that BB-01 is going to be a buggy by the looks of the parts lists. Nice to see a different rally body coming too. Going to be interesting…
  3. I am all over this! Currently starting a Madcap rebuild project for the channel and will be super interested in anything that helps resolve the issues I am likely to find during the rebuild 😁 @Kol__ thanks for the tip dude!
  4. @Tomason let me know about the track you have.
  5. That is a bunch of stuff! Prices on eBay would be a good start.
  6. Bravo! I have a few models on the way and looked into the track but shipping was unreal! I am going to do something similar so thanks for the inspiration 🙌🏻
  7. Wow! That is not much extra for a significantly hopped up model! I feel that the UK pricing for this is way off. It seems a great price in the US though 👍🏻
  8. So that is $100 cheaper than here in the UK! Out of interest how much would a standard Neo Scorcher kit be at Tower Hobbies in comparison? Neo - £129 TT02BR - £314
  9. Very cool! Nice to see others hooked on running time trials and enjoy the layout of your post. Your on road track is neat! I ran a series on my YouTube channel last year on my backyard track and the TT02B came out on top also so I am pleased to see it doing well on your leaderboard. It doesn’t do too badly as a entry chassis and it can be hopped up for more performance. Surprised that the DT03 was able to get close to the XV01. I bet the average lap was more consistent on the XV chassis. It was the most consistent car on the Orchard Raceway last season over all my chassises. Keep up the great work 🙌🏻
  10. I have one of these inbound too at the moment. Things are a little more expensive for us in the UK and the hop ups a little harder to find. Sorry to hijack your thread but what do we see as essential hop ups for this chassis?
  11. So it is priced up at £315 here in the Uk. The pound is weak so it is no surprise it feels expensive. However, it still presents great value for money if you want a hopper up TT02B. Lots of people comparing it to the TD4 and it is priced about the same. I don’t have a TD4 yet but will look at getting one in the future to compare. Personally I think it is great Tamiya are giving us interesting models and not just another generic basic model. I do wonder what the price of the TD4R is going to be though!!
  12. Following this to see if you get some sound advice! I have one on the way also 😎
  13. Rex chatting about the new models. Enjoy 👍🏻
  14. My pre order is in and I am convinced. I priced up as many hop ups as I could find and still came to a price well in excess of £400 and some of those parts were sourced from Japan. A few TRF decals and it will look the business I am sure. I look forward to testing it against the TT02B stock and the TD4 eventually.
  15. @Willy iine thanks for the information 👍🏻 I am going to get one as it seems like good value for money if you like the idea of hopping up a car. Be interesting to see how much better it is over the stock TT02B which was the fastest car round my backyard track last season!
  16. Looks that way doesn’t it. There is quite a lot of extra stuff on this model I think but I haven’t done a full comparison yet.
  17. New Tamiya video dropped this morning. TT02BR can be see around 1:02:30. Does look good and you get some decals! However, the carry case is just the box 😂
  18. I think I am prepared to give it a chance. I wonder if this and the TT02SRX is a swan song for these chassis versions before we next the next generation?
  19. @Juggular Thanks so much for your reply. That was what I was hoping you would say!
  20. @Juggular Thanks so much for your reply. That was what I was hoping you would say!
  21. I agree putting some TRF decals in would have been nice! Those videos are cool 😎
  22. Awesome post and your last idea of using a centre diff and/or XV02 slipper would have been amazing. What about an XV02B at some point????
  23. Could you share the seller you used? How were the import fees etc? I was close to buying a Japan model the other day but got spooked by additional fees etc.
  24. @droidy you are probably right. For this price you can have 3 stock TT02Bs which would give great racing content and a spare of everything. But we are all suckers for a shiner Tamiya kit, especially with a carrying case 😁
  25. I think we will see a TD2R and a TD4R at some point in the future. It should have been £100 cheaper really. I was expecting around £250. Be interesting to see the USD price on this chassis.
