Mr. Speedtech,
When are you getting your first one? I need to check it out and see if it's worth buying!

What's wrong with Tamiya? If it weren't for their products back in the late 70s-mid-90s we'd be missing a lot of stuff. A household name, Clodbuster, the touring car, etc. They innovated as others copied.

Tamiya has done too much for the hobby.

the clutch going directly to the trans is the best piece of engineering ive seen, fantastic. no more aligning the gear mesh by moving the engine. nice

dont get me wrong there friend... just for info, i started rc due to Tamiya... and won race with it. but just for info again... the brand in some countries doesn't reflect the podium finish. i hope u understand that. during my time.. the only time tamiya got the acknowledgement is when surikarn won the world championship in touring car. it used to be the other brands. tamiya was known to be the model, the vintage car/truck. thats history by now. they well known now. with Marc keep winning with it and tnx truck with other drivers too.
so dont jump into conclusion that im against it. thats for general answer. i think i can say, i have more tamiya's in my collection than other people out there. so relax. lets enjoy this new truggy.
are u ordering one?

Nice link! Cheers!

Regards the Tamiya brand image, especially for enthusiasts old enough to remember, they definitely conjure images of the highest quality, entry level kits and highly detailed static scale models.

But when Tamiya decide to do something, they always seem to execute their mission flawlessly. Their entry into the competitive Truggy arena is a bold move.

Going back to the Sand Rover, Holiday Buggy and Sand Scorcher era - it's those cars that got me hooked. It's Tamiya I blame for my addiction!
