I bought this model from TC member Bimdapogs for the rather large sum of US$230 (not including postage), just a little more than it's worth. The transaction itself was trouble free and it arrived from the other side of the world within a week.
It will be built and raced with a 4600Kv brushless fitted. The 9.28:1 FDR is only just passable for 4600Kv brushless as it's only 2WD. One day I hope Tamiya will build a competitive 2WD buggy chassis.
Dynamicly this chassis is very well designed. The suspension geometry works well and there is no bumpsteer. The gearbox is very robust using all 0.8mm gears, just a shame about the lack of gearing options and slipper clutch.
It will get my usually race scheme of TA-Yellow (those pink decals are just so gross!) and Super Astute wheels with Tamiya square spike tyres.
This chassis in many ways is the evolution of the Bear Hawk chassis (which should have been dubbed DT01).
Thanks for looking, Comments always welcome.
