Lets see, after 6 months of racing, 1 broken arm and 1 broken hinge pin... it sure fell apart on the first tap.... whats threadlock?

Sorry TRF but I see Tamiyas get tweeked in the chassis as much as any car I can remember. I loaned out my setup board twice on Sunday to two Tamiya signature car drivers at NorCal Hobbies to correct the tweek issues in their chassis.

Threadlock every screw? Only on the threads of the ball joints used for the steering links. Certainly not any "screws". Completely off base.

About a year ago, I admit having problems with breakage of the old version wishbones; but, that has been a non-issue with the new version wishbones. Way old news...Tie!

Err hardly ever had a tweak issue with any of my TRF cars, they must be building their cars wrong.

Another point then, Tamiya 2 TC WC in a row, Corally... not a single car in the A main for the past 3 WC.

Yes hinge pins get bent on the tamiya, but you can finish the race...

That's probably why. Those arms are stronger then the new ones.

So if a Tamiya has problems it was built wrong? I like these rose colored glasses you wear.
