Are there any plans for a Tamiya trf201 body? If not, what kind of bribes need to be made to make it happen?

I'm glad they changed it, because cutting out those vents on the Raptor was teh SUCK!

I totally dig the way the body looks, but it's a pain to decal and trim. I guess the new one fixes that.

[QUOTE=PW;9635382]We were thinking that Kyosho would include a longer chassis on their Worlds kit they just announced, but it didn't happen. We will look back into it.


Wow cool, I hope it comes through thanks for the response

Sorry if this is not a good place to put this but im new and find it hard to navigate these forms.
I'm new to 1/8th buggy and need tires the proline holeshots that came in my kit are not gona work on my track. I was looking at jconcept subculture and crowbars. What would be better or whats your recomendations. My track is dirt no clay pretty hard pack but has alot of loam too. It gets chewed up even the main line has alot of dust/loam. It is dry and loose in spots and gets water in others. The main line is not always the fastest either so i spend alot of time in the cushion

Sounds like you would like the Sub Cultures. It's a great versatile tread pattern and has great wear.

I just gave my buddy a set of the new Hazard wheels as a gift and he loved them! He didn't notice alot of difference in performance but his sc10 needs a rebuild.

They look awesome on the truck!

Thanks for your reply about the subculters.

The Crow Bars have a tremendous amount of traction, but they can become very edgy on rough tracks. They are great on loamy tracks that don't have a lot of sharp-edged ruts in corners.

That's awesome! The Hazard wheel seems to make the AE trucks easier to drive (more stable) on super high-bite/grooved conditions.
