Default Hi

I am one of MANY members of Tamiya Club who would LOVE to see you re-produce some of your parts.
Wheel rims seem especially popular, and with the re-release by Tamiya themselves of the Hornet and Grasshopper, which your rims would fit, it would seem to me that these would be a great seller.
Also, the nylon suspension parts for the Racing Buggy series would be very appreciated as well, not least by me !

I'd like to know how to fit the proline/team losi/TA tires and wheels on the grasshopper and frog. The stock tires do not grip well. I am modifying the grasshopper and frog to race in a local series.

MOST DEFINATELY interested in the suspension systems offered for not only the Tamiya stuff - however the Kyosho and other brands as well.

If nothing else available though - I would be more than happy with a re-release of the 4wd conversion for the Rough Rider !! Even just hte suspension would be great.

Cheers from Australia

The parts we are talking about are only for the Tamiya cars and we didn't make th4e conversion kits to begin with...sorry:

As of this time we are looking at the aluminum parts: wheels, coil over kits, skid plates and maybe dual shock mounts for the rear. We are also considering the aftermarket front axle pins, bearing kits and brass transmission gears. The nylon parts are not viable unless we were selling 1000's of them....

If anyone has suggestions on what parts they'd like to see and if they want plane finish or anodized aluminum parts, please let me know.

JR

Shodog-

Got any more pics of that car? It looks awesome

I've never seen a 4wd Rough Rider before.

What gearbox is that? It looks like the old MIP cable drive that was used on the RC10.
