Tamiya has been around forever but they have always been just a little behind when it comes to offroad race vehicles. They produce adequate off road vehicles but just not quite the level of others ie Mugen, losi, AE, kyosho. I'm not knocking Tamiya my 1st hobby grade RC was a Tamiya. I have owned several electric Tamiya cars but none of them were what I would consider race vehicles. It is what it is and 90% is the driver anyway.

What i was saying is just because a tire looks like another doesnt mean a company copied another, there is a tire coming out very soon, im sure its at worlds, but it looks similar to the impact, i seen this tire like a month or so ago, the two companys just designed two similar tires behind closed doors

Just my .02
yup, i just did byrons offroad challenge early oct and i bought soft and Super soft grid irons and ibeams in truggy, and did the same thing in buggy just added some crossbrace in there as well. it really hurt my wallet on that

1985. The RC10 did not exist in 1979.

Jay won 2wd with the rc10, Gil Losi Jr 4wd with the Yokomo Super Dogfighter.
