    Tamiya Avante 2011!!!

    Haven't seen any threads on this great car. Love mine. It gets run, not a shelf queen. I think this car is such a great blast from the past. All stock. Please share your pics, vids, tips, and tricks.

    RE: Tamiya Avante 2011!!!

    The only thing keeping me away from this kit is the price. What did you pay for yours? I've seen them for up to $500.

    I had the original back when it was first released.

    I paid $414. I wasn't too concerned with the price. This is a car I always wanted back in the day but couldn't afford. I didn't let it slip by this go round. LOL

    RE: Tamiya Avante 2011!!!

    That's too much for me. That's more than I paid for my Tamiya Tundra. If i see a deal somewhere I might pick one up but at $400 and up I can wait a while.

    I had to get one too, I wanted 2 but at the time I ordered Tower was in limited supply and said I could only get one, now that I have other things going on I have to put the second one on hold for now but at least I have one........

    Sweet! Be sure to post some pics once you have it built. I really enjoyed the build. Typical Tamiya, went together smoothly. Just be sure to loctite everything per instructions.

    It handles very well for such an old car. It pushes a little but very easy to drive. Very responsive to the throttle just like my full size Evo.
