I wonder what they "Updated" on the CC01 Pajero? Maybe they included ball bearings with the kit, or finally updated the steering???

Judging by the transmitter in the background, perhaps it is an XB one with radio updated from 27MHz to 2.4GHz?

Call me crazy but I am not seeing the product pages for the Avante 2011, Boomerang, or Novafox on the Tamiya USA website.  They were there no less than two days ago.  Can anybody confirm they are seeing the same?  Is this a sign for the USA?

They are saying the avante, boomerang and for x at japan only? Is that true? I had an avante as a kid and it was better as a shelf queen, though i would consider a boomerang since my first rc was a super sabre

& read it  , IT SAYS ""ONLY JAPAN RELEASE"" :( . Sadly we are not in Japan 

G'day Mate,  not sure if it's been posted elsewhere already but the Boomerang, Nova Fox and Avante 2011 are all now listed on Stella's front page as UPCOMING PRODUCTS.

Hoorah and smiley face until it hurts  :D

Interesting though that they haven't listed the Top Force yet.

The new "soft" Mud Block tyres is my bet......   The CC01 Pajero is also not listed as UPCOMING PRODUCTS with Stella just yet.  

The Boomerang, Nova Fox and Avante 2011 are listed for early March.

FYI, I have already preordered the Metaltop Pajero and TT01 Zakspeed 190e from Tower at 169 and 129. Slated for late March/Early April Release. Prices before 15% saver club coupon.

Out the door with free shipping was 255 USD.

I agree with those.. I'm also surprised no new Porsches.. How can they not have a 918 Spyder?

The real question, is why has no one made a 1/10th McLaren P1 body?

And here's your beautiful 1/10th Porsche 918.  Thought about picking one up myself a time or two.30917t1_30917t1_pc2_l.jpg

Kyosho body sets are the most expensive, if you can even find them!

saw re-re-re PajMTW newbuilt in the flesh today

Tyres could be softer but I didn't get to squeeze test them. :P

Looks like blue knuckles are gone.

And good certainty it'll come with the black gears.

@WillyChang

Yeah I mentioned this in the current Top Force thread with tongue in cheek but it could be true.  "Updated" could simply be referring to the new release date.

Softer tyres: But now we won't get 100.000 miles out of them! Think of the warranty claims! ;)

Blue knuckles: I never understood the logic behind that one from Tamiya. What I did like was the fact that they came pre-tapped. What are they like on other CC01s?

Black gears: From my experience racing TTs I know that the black gears are slightly stronger, but louder. But then the gears in a CC seem pretty much indestructable anyway. What would the logic behind that one from Tamiya?

yeah the black gears seem more "crispy"

I'm up 5 XCs just this year alone, most have black gears now. Found a heap of sand inside one of the black geared boxes and yep it's become quite loud compared to its twin with brandnew black gears. Much louder driving forwards than reverse.

whereas the old white gears are more resilient, after you wash out the sand they seem to recover better and aren't as whiney. I even put back into service in my most wornout set of white gears (58132 with half-bald tyres?!! that's serious mileage!) and that was quieter than the beached blackies

Black knuckles seem to be same Skyline mold as the blue afaik.
