id rather have the toyota. but when it comes to trucks im a little bit of a toyota fanboy. but i just like mini trucks so...

i got to thinking, will we ever see the tamiya juggernaut again? its got to be close to 20 years old. not really vintage compared to there other stuff, but now all those drooling 12 year olds that never could afford one have jobs and money now so...

My 1st RC car was the tamiya 959. Would love to have one as a shelf queen.

Losi - JRX2 and JRX Pro SE: with the persistence of rere's, have to wonder why Horizon hasn't jumped on the bandwagon. do they own the licensing to the pre-acquisition models(?).
Victor - Super Hi-IQ: fully updated for today's battery chemistries, BL motor analyzer and a large color screen - but keeping the awesome keypad.

I would love for Traxxas to re-release the sledgehammer! It was my first real rc and i have several of them and would love the opportunity to buy some brand new bodies. I know that reproduction bodies are available on ebay and i have a few of them but they are poor quality and have alot of flaws. A few years back i got a hold of Traxxas to see if they happened to have any new bodies laying around but they didn't but they did have 6 decals sets still in stock so i bought them all.

I just finished to restore my Tamiya Blazing Blazer, pretty sure its inevitable that that kit will be re-released.

I just want Tamiya to rerelease the 1:10 Lamborghini Countach body. I'd buy a TT02 kit if it came with that body and wheels.

id be down with the countach as well. relive my tyco countach days. and iv been wanting something i can just run in the street with no problems. keep it simple, brushed motor, friction shocks, maybe upgrade to bearings. kinda want something slower and sloppy

the blancpain gallardo they did a few years ago would be cool as a substitute. (or if they just did a new release with a huracan i wouldnt complain. in case you cant tell, i like lamborghinis)

The 834 or 870c/YZ10? My vote would be the latter...

834 would be pretty rad. even better with some small up grades so it could handle lipo and a bit of power. i would be interested in either honestly. where did you hear it?
