Finally, one landed on my lap. Many Thanks to Martin from Zurich Switzerland for giving me this awesome opportunity for offering it a new home, Tamiya have had a short stint with racing in the international scene. They have always fielded some really good cars in the past but nothing has done so much for their racing pedigree as much as this car. If my knowledge serves me well, I believe this made the Euro's offroad championship and won from one of UK's legendary driver Lee Martin.

When I hold this car, all it screams is quality, closely followed by the notion it is a racing beast and if only this was being used in 2020's where there was a Tamiya team, spares galore behind this, I would most definitely be racing this. Even though this was raced almost a decade ago, this is by no means going to be a walk over for the other more upto date cars, I feel the 501x will be all the way up there. I will update this soon into the future with a painted shell. Just a matter of time. Till then
