I’ve used RC Mart several times in the past with no issues and super fast shipping even at regular rate. However I ordered a couple small parts on March 23 through their EBay store and they are still out in the wind.

I used to order from them. Had a problem couple years back. No tracking available between HongKong Post and USPS. My packages almost got sent back. I never even knew they’d been shipped


If that estimate I got was right. There no way I’ll pay a $100 for shipping.

Their prices are much lower, but shipping from them has gone up due to the current situation. Your better off ordering from a domestic company.

I've not built a Tamiya since the m07. This model excites me. I used to run an F201 heavily and as others have noted there are similarities. Trying to think back to all the mods I made on the f201 and curious to see if they will be compatible or even necessary. I remember doing extensive work to the rocker arms and the front arms to gearbox attaching points. Rocker arms for smoothness and front arm points for durability. At least I won't have to worry about making wheel adapters as this E1 uses TC wheels.

I think I'm going to wait to see what shakes out with the pro and R versions.

Any thoughts on whether this will be usable on normal streets or track only?

Parking lots is where mine will be run mostly. If/when get the chance to run carpet it will. Using standard touring cars tires there shouldn’t be any problem.

Looks to be a very expensive niche toy car.

IMO, a big Yes to Tamiya for releasing a car that can capture the essence of the new Formula E series. They should release lots of body sets with the liveries of the Formula E teams to draw in sales to imaginative hobbyists and drive way bashers everywhere.

And please develop a TCS aspect: while this car can play with others, a spec class with a Tamiya esc, a Tamiya motor, and a set of Tamiya tires on Tamiya wheels WILL be popular in this day and age

Agree.. but... Well the Tamiya TBLE02S ESC probably doesn’t fit, it’s tight in there. Probably HW XR10 Pro Stock is only that that will fit

I cannot imagine that Tamiya develops a new chassis that won't be capable to host their own electronics.

Tamiya provides basic kits with a motor and ESC. The premium kits usually do not include them.

For this kit, Tamiya is not including an ESC.. from Tamiya USA

Required to complete: 2-channel radio, steering servo, ESC

The one pictured below also is not the TBLE02S.

Somehow Premium does NOT come to mind looking at this kit

Though I agree with your reasoning.

“The one pictured below” is the TBLE-03

I take it you haven't seen the M07 chassis have issues with the TCS control motor, it requires modifying the connectors to fit around the chassis brace.

Impressed the kit includes Philips head taps for each of the screws(sold seperatly)

But seriously, maybe less precision equals more fun sometimes.

Why so serious!
