Default Tamiya Boomerang - Re release

Does anyone know if Tamiya are rereleasing any more models other than the hot shot?

I would buy 10 boomerangs if they rerelased it, it was the best car ever.


Thanks

I thought this was a thread stating that Tamiya IS re-releasing the boomerang.Topic a little deceiving.Oh well.

The Hilux is not a re-release. It is a new body on Tamiya's current 3-speed chassis.

The Boomerang was one of the cars I drooled over in the mag ads... but never got one. ha ha I would probably have to get one too... finally!!

My first car was the original Ultima... ladder frame chassis. I wanted a 4wd pretty bad.

It was my first RC Car.

The hours I spent on were unbelievable.

I can still remember how to put it back together.


Can we do a petition or something and send to Tamiya to Rerelease.

Thumbs up

I still have one in full working order. Recently put a new speedy in it.
I have owned it since 1987, bought in singapore on holidays.
The only damage is i would like a battery holder replacement as one of the plastic mounts has broken off.

I must say that i thought it was quicker back then than it is now. TEU101 with a tamiya gold motor in it.

How much do you want for it?

I would never use it, just admire it.

BTW, the Hi Lux re-release looks HORRIBLE with the tire size they decided to go with. Then again, most guys that buy them will swap them out for 2.2 beadlocks or some larger tires on the 1.9 rims.
My vote is in for the Boomerang, as well. That and the Big Wig.
