Aint nothing wrong with the car itself. If I could run anything it would be 10th pan touring TC (Like RC10L3T or CRC pantoura). However the class just died! Tamiya just came out with Lemans C for a new 2006 TCS class in Canada atleast anyways. Too soon to think about yet another new class cause you'd be buying a car to waste if it doesn't catch on to be mainstream.

Default yea

I think this is great. If they can get rid of the stickpack deal and find a way to jam a side by side in there, i'm gonna get one. I love Tamiya.. can't really say anything bad about a company that is as committed as they are, for as long no less.

If this thing could crossbreed with a 10L3T then we'd really have something....saddle packs and regular TC rubber/foam

SXS cells were never a problem you have to tape the batteries in though, you cannot use the factory cell holders.

The reason why they are designed to use stick packs because in Japan, stick pack is most commonly use. They rarely use side by side, except for extreme competition.

Where's the risk in raiding the spare parts bin?
