Better one than that Eurocup British finals Someone from Hobby Company showing someone around from overseas. One racer had his XRay on his table and the person from the HC said that "this is one of our top Tamiya racing models" about the XRay

Default Reedy Race

Hi, Slowhand,

I am going to BKK to see the reedy race.
Maybe I can say hello to you there.
But I will arrive only on 15 Nov.

lol i no!

they are trying to push tamiya sales of a local hobby store near me.

one day the hobby store people came to my local track to see what people were after these days as they wanted to start more into RC. that happen to be the same day i set FTD with my evo3s. they came up to me like wow thats a cool tamiya then asking questions if i needed parts or if it would be worth it so obviously i said yeah. they seemed real kean as that way booby co would sort them out with stuff.

a hobby co rep came down to there shop and they asked and were like

rep - " do you know how hard it is to get things for that car! wishbones or gears! You dont know what you are asking for "

i was like excuse me but if a 15 year old kid like ma can then it cant be too hard ?

Exactly Alan. They were in stock at the same time a few of us went to Japan last year, 5 of them for the team. They had been ordered before the final decision had been made about the team for this season. One person was told to find a price of one in Japan and the hobby co would match that price to shift one of them. The person got a price of one and when he told the hobby co all they said was, sorry we cannot even buy them at that price .

Also if you do not have a shop front the hobby co will not support you. Rick
