Always knew you'd had a really good run with a Tamiya when something broke from going too hard out. The only ones I have left are top shelf & an unbuilt Buggy Champ kit which I'm hoping to get rid of at some stage in the near future. Youre keen running over a surface with loose stones etc as they're always a risk of getting in where you don't want them. Had a Dirt Thrasher & found cloth tape was really good at helping keep everything clean & clear.

I had one of those years ago. Fun car but I kept breaking the back axel housing. I think that's the only problem the car ever had when I had it.

Nope front end is perfect no sense making it work better when the rear on these hopper cars are faulty design they pull open the rear shocks locking them out when you apply throttle.... this is why when your running over bumps and you let off the throttle and roll you will then see your cars rear suspension then works and your car runs smoother when rolling without throttle input.

so i don't wast $ on mods when the rear is the bad fault.
