Fighter Buggy RX Memorial DT-01 47460

Recommended Posts

Sort of a re-release and special edition at the same time. Black body, gold rims, CVA dampers.

Not the greatest chassis of course but an interesting attempt to make the Grasshopper style design work. I think it looks pretty good in black!

Who or what event is being commemorated?    I mean, a "memorial" generally means it's a tribute to something, like an event, or someone.

Did a long-time Tamiya designer die this year?  Perhaps the designer of the DT-01 chassis?

I wish we could see a higher quality picture to see the date and the text on the rear window pillar.

Anyone in Japan know?

In the other thread, I referenced the Japan cup/fighters cup? Didn't that start with this buggies launch?

I like this 

tried to pick up a violet racer last year but RCJAZ just couldn’t get hold of one 

seems expensive for a dt-01 chassis though

I have a rookie rabbit, with oil shocks and a punchy motor it actually drives pretty well

The second Tamiya I bought was the FBRX. An easy chassis to refurbish, and with cvs dampers it’s not a bad little buggy for small spaces. It was my first attempt at body repairs too, the hard body isn’t the best solution for a buggy, especially the rear wing section. 
 

it actually looks quite nice in the black n gold, would make a JPSpecial version an easy build
