Hilux or Mountaineer. Never had one but I'd love to have a shelf queen, one NIB, & one to run with a big box of spare parts.

Mountaineer/Hilux:

The chassis was so real that the Hilux looked like a Toyota truck. It had leaf springs, 3 speed transmission, cast aluminum axles, etc. It was the best scale truck ever made - only Tamiya would go to such great lengths for detail.

The original Blackfoot. I got it 16 years ago. It was the one that brought me from "toy" r/c to "hobby" r/c. My dad helped me build it.

Anyone remember the MRP High Roller? It was the only truck that could float on water! The RC Car Truck shoot out was a great mag for monster truck guys. My favorites would be ClodBuster, Usa 1 Nitro Crusher, and Tamiya's Hi Lux(Bruiser).

The lunch box will be re-released soon, so lunch box lovers rejoice! Never had the bullhead, but i think that's my favourite, i would buy a super bullhead if tamiya makes it like they did with the super clodbuster.
