Default Tamiya TNX

I see that they are now available on Tower.
Anyone have one yet? If so, please post a review.
Thanks

I know CBR, from some other forums has one. He posted a video of it. The truck looks pretty fast. That truck is sure to attract newcomers to the hobby. It comes with an OS. Check out terracrusher.net, you'll find CBR's video over there.

I grew up on Tamiya kits, and almost bought a TC. I got wrapped up in the t-maxx craze at the time. That TNX will definitely prove to be a winner if people give Tamiya another chance. Its OS powered, so thats a HUGE bonus right there. The body on it looks HOT too. Id like to see this TNX get some recognition. The videos of it show a VERY powerful truck.

My question, as a newbie, is this: the TNX comes with an .18 engine. Doesn't that mean it's gonna be left to eat the dirt of trucks like the Savage .25? Or is that not necessarily so? Does bigger always mean better?

No a bigger engine on the Savage is needed to move it heavy weight.Also like you said bigger isn't always better OS is a good qualtiy engine maker.You'll have no problem flying by the savages

my fav. pic also the engine in the tnx is so good that pro racers keep that engine in it. if you look at the results, it shows the tnx in 1st, 2nd 3rd places, unless theres a revo.

I agree,

I the latest Car Action Magazine the TNX went to race. It was going to take 1st, 2nd and 3rd, but they all ran out of gas and lost to a Revo, they still placed 2nd, 3rd and 5th. According to the article all they had to do was put Bowties on them.

I find that impressive.

not much.i put some proline powerstroke shocks on and use bowties for racing .either 40 series or regular size depending on track conditions.i use the stock tires for bashing.
rite now im playing around with pipes and nitro percentage.
the truck is one of the few that dont really need anyhop ups, i mean besides the shocks, the truck is awsome.

i though the same thing for awhile which sort of turned me off to this truck but you have to remember it's an OS engine and weighs 4 lbs or so less than a savage.

ps i saw one at one of the hobby shops and they're asking 479 for the tnx and 299 for the yokomo gt2 that i got from ultimate hobbies for 199.

This is on the top of my list when I buy a new rc car soon. But gosh I want a gorilla maxx

They took all that was wrong with terracrusher and greatly improved it.
