im so far from a tamiya fan boy... i have avoided them all my life(expept for a few spec classes) This being my first TRF i must say im impressed. Luckily i ran Xray in my TC day so i was getting similar quality... But comparing this to my last B4 i built in the fall that has really started to show its age in both quality control and molds.. This thing is going together like a precision car... I totally love the fact that i have only used the 2mm hudy wrench up to this point! Man i love metric!

Im told ill need some kleenex and hand cream when i get to building the shocks LOL

I hate how these TRF have no boxart. It seems that Tamiya has broke the tradition.

Actually, Tamiya USA is including them, so you will get them with any purchase from a USA vendor.

If your wrist starts hurting take a break for a few hours then resume the build. that's what I always do, and dont rush the build take your time.
It takes me 2 days or 12 hours to build a 4wd kit.
2wd kits take less time maybe 8 hours.

Its perfectly reasonable to enjoy setting up a car to suit, and to have a car which is close to what you want straight out of the box.
Amen to that.

PLEASE STOP! We don't need a rundown of how long it takes you to build a 4wd kit.
It's great that you're excited about the 201, but take a breath and think before you post nonsense.

Hebiki,

That is cause Canada is a smaller market. It is easier for them to air freight the first batch of desirible kits. That way the regulars don't turn to overseas retailers for kits and parts.

That is a smart move on their part. But when you are as big as TA, you have to supply places likr GP and Horizon, and they have huge orders. Air Freight, doesn't make sense.
