Questions?? Tamiya/TRF?

Are you just doing updates on your site or are you no longer stocking Tamiya/TRF as not many kits are coming up anymore???

Not just kits but parts and tools as well.

What kind of supplier issues? You mean Tamiya Japan won't sell to Banzai anymore?

Not sure. I'm just relaying the message from Banzai to me.

Here is exactly what they have said.

Unfortunately, at the moment we are having issues with our Tamiya supply, which is why we have removed them for the moment. I'm not sure what will happen in the future, so can't say when we might be able to stock these products again. I'm really sorry for that.

Kind Regards,
Banzai Hobby Customer Support

Wonder what the fuss is about. I trust this shop will get things ironed out soon. I have been purchasing from them for several years and absolutely trust them as much as any american online store. Always quick shipping, always quick reply's to emails.

Shame, my favourite place to shop. I feel all is not right in banzai land. No Tamiya stuff and the Kyosho tomahawk never appeared

Guys looks like Tamiya kits are back on Banzai. I don't see the section for TRF kits but the onroad kits are back. TRF parts are there also. Order away. Who ever made this happen at Banzai or Tamiya, I just want to say a big thank you.

Hopefully the higher end kits and TRF kits come back in stock soon.
