i never said a tamiya F103 will reach 60 km/h out from the box, i said the himoto F1 being advertised to 60 km/h - which is a pure bullshit overexaggerate! it remains me of the toy boats you can get for 30 bucks, advertised to 30-40 km/h but will barely reach 5-10.
this is a huge problem for everyone who is serious about this business, the price i got myself for selling some of my boats has been a joke, not to mention how hard it is to sell them - only because im honest. When the buyer (a kid) asked how fast the boat goes i said i.e 25 km/h (i.e kyosho airstreak) and he says thats slow, because he thinks the toy boat he has goes like 30-40 because thats what the box says! so the 30 dollar toyboat he driving around at 5-10 km/h, that is what he believes is 30-40
so when i saw this F1 being advertised to 60 km/h i saw red
