Back in 1985 I bought my first Tamiya (Monster Beetle) after reading the RC Guide Book. I enjoyed the hobby for a few years (and a few cars) but in 1990 lost interest. In 2005 I discovered that Tamiya RC is something that is still appreciated by a large audience. For me it was the same as 1985. I bought a RC Guide Book and after a few days I ordered my new 'first' Tamiya (Wild Willy Metallic Special).
Tamiya is not just a brand, It's an addiction!!!
