i saw the mini z version but it was of the interceptor from road warrior. it's good but they should have made a bigger version.

hey scooby, you never know.....if enough people ask and the right person sees a demand, it could possibly be made. the falcon xb/xc has become very popular in the states recently....you're lucky to get one for under 20k used and in rough shape. the closest thing to the falcon is a 1970-71 ford torino gt. australia took the styling of the mustang and the torino and combined it into a very nice car that should have been sold in the states and everywhere else IMO.

i envy the aussies during that time period....they had the coolest cars especially the 70's muscle cars. all of them were cool regardless of the make. they did what america should have continued doing....made cars that people actually would like to own. whether if it was a holden, ford, or dodge, they were all cool IMO!!!

that would be so cool to find an existing body with the same shape and contours and modify it to look like the interceptor.....but what body that's available have the similar shape of the falcon????

thanks for the ebay link. i saw the pics but the proportions and the detail isn't there for a display model. i'm more into details and having a more realistic look. that's what drawn me to tamiya because of the realism of the kits. now if tamiya or hpi would produce the falcon and the v8 interceptor, that would possibly be the ultimate r/c body or kit to collect!!!

just to let everyone know, i had emailed hpi and actually got a response back. i forwarded the letter to a fellow member and he's going to try to post it for everyone to read and give input. if there is enough interest and people to write in, maybe it will be built. we can only hope. i actually hope it will be built.

thanks for the comments everyone. this is the 9th supra i have owned since 1994. i had quite a few of the mk2 supras and this is my 3rd mk3 model. i'm well aware of the head gasket issue on the turbo engines, but if anything happens to the one in the car, a 2.5l twin turbo 1jz-gte will be taking it's place.

My very last purchaise on the bay
pcw 064

wow!!! talk about getting the shaft! i think ebay have rules against that if i'm not mistaken. i buy and sell, mostly buy, and whatever the cost of shipping is, that's all the buyer pays, nothing more. sorry about that but you have a very cool car.

Ta03rs trf 934 porsche
bossgrabber1970

deciding the color is one thing, but i haven't painted any bodies since 2000 and i don't want to ruin the porsche bodies since they are getting very expensive. the supra and the skyline paint was simple and could be easily corrected if i made a goof, but for the porsches, i have to be very careful. i might keep them clear until i can regain my painting skills again.

Thanks wyoming for showing me the light!!!!
bossgrabber1970

i actually like it. its a great performer for the price. name any other vehicle that's brushless and for under $200 rtr. did a little bashing with it earlier today and was impressed. now i'm waiting for the lipos to show up. good run time with a 1700 nicad pack but will expect even more with the lipo pack and more punch.
