Faster ??? Naa... yesterday, several other good drivers also practiced alongside the Champ, and as a friend rightly pointed out to me saying that Mr. Thongchai was actually faster than the Champ. BUT ....unfortunately not on the track ....he was only faster coming down the driver stand ...
Mr. Thongchai, the only Thai driver to be in A Main at the recent Thai International race, is also hiding somewhere in this forum ...
Where r u Thong???

"Pembalap" Indonesia, u only need the weekend to enjoy the Race ... just buy the ticket n sign up..

O right my local hobby shop thought the evo 3 s had never been imported as it never came on the stock list.

Also they had 5 414 WCR on the shelf for the UK tamiya team but they were never needed so they sat there and i believe they still are there. Rick

i phoned the hobby company and they wouldnt tell me weather they were there or not.
but iam 100% that they imported the evo3sl but they all went to apex models who are an absolute rip off shop.

i just phoned the hobby company again and got through to a guy who said they imported the 414 for a limited number of custermers and that 1 they didnt have any specially ordered for tamiya uk drivers and 2 they do not sponsor any drivers and will not.3 they dont have any 414s left.
this is exactly what the bloke said.

I'm did not say that you were lying but I know the Hobby Company and they tend to not know whats happening or just say anyhting to get rid of you as they are only importers and do not like to deal with the public. I tried to order some 414 parts and they said that all the part were discontinued or never made as spares but R10 had them in 2 days. But 7 month later I got an email saying my parts were in !!!!!!

man ,i hate the hobby company.
1.they say they have parts and say they send them and they take 2 weeks
2.they havent got the parts and have to order them which takes over a month then another 2 weeks
3they cant find anything without part numbers
4 they do not deserve to be the importers of tamiya.
5 one person i spoke to didnt even know what a 414 was!how rediculas is that .they dont even no the range they bring into this country.
they are jerks.
wished RIKO was still the importer at least they stock parts.
