Default Tamiya TG10-MK.1??

Just curious about how good this car is, I don't know a whole lot about Tamiya products. I do believe the car has been discontinued. But that's the extent of my knowledge.

Tamiya kits are very strong and realiable. Do you plan on racing? If so, i would recommend saving up and try to get the AE NTC3 RTR

Thanks to you both for your reply's and input. The reason why I'm asking about the car is because I have a gentleman who wishes to trade his Traxxas T-Maxx monster truck and the car I just described for my Savage 4.6 SS. I am not very sure I want to do this.

Has the Tamiya still got the standard FS12 engine it?
Is the T-Maxx stock?

Cheers

It is the best beginner car I think . It is very simple , reliable , durable etc. . You can improve it by installing 2-speed transmission , O.S. .12 CV-R engine , O.S. 1031 Tuned pipe... You can learn the logic of RC glow powered models with this car . You can use it on the street also Thats all .
I sold my TG10 and I'm very sorry . It was my first car .

However , it is a limited RC model car . You can't get a degree on the races with this car . You can not compete with pro. cars such as Mugen MTX-4 , Serpent 710 etc.

You can see the photos of my TG-10 from this link :

You can upgrade the Tamiya and make it fast. Do you plan to race it? A good site for it is http://www.tamiyanitro.com

If you get the Tamiya car, get the TG10-mk.2 or its pro version. It is a much better car over the mk.1 and is more race worthy with the Serpent, Mugen, and Kyosho cars you read out from the big races. I bought one last year, threw a Mugen X-12 engine in it, and clocked lap times just as fast as my Mugen MTX-3 with the same engine. All of the magazine reviews have been excellent on the mk.2 and replacement parts for it are cheap. The only thing with the mk.2 you will have to get that does not come with the kit is the front sway bar assembly (a must if you are going to race on a larger scale or at larger tracks).
