    Looking forward to seeing what spare parts you get for the tanks...particularly those other than the Tiger.

    your better off buying a different Stug, You pay a premium price for the Stug from Taigen for basicly what amounts to a paint job.

    Cool...I'm interested in starting a PzIV about then. Does the gun tube work with the airsoft BBs or just IR? Does it have the muzzle brake for both the F2 and the G? Seems like Isaw something like that somewhere. Will you also be getting the metal road wheels for the PzIV?

    I think Welsh (from asiatam / taigen...?) carries the F2 / G barrel with both muzzle brakes included... but I read elsewhere that overall the barrel itself is too short for either version; but it's something to work with!

    RE: New Taigen RC Tanks Available

    Exactly.....the Tiger and KV-1 are good models and worth the money, but the rest of the Taigen line-up are just standard HL's/w the standard metal upgrades and a ok paintjob! What's worse is they come with a worthless 2.4ghz system that can't be adapted to Tamiya compatible IR, so what's the point....? Better off to buy a much cheaper standard HL and get the right upgrades....

    Dirtybird69 does the Taigen Stug not have a metal lower hull, tracks, wheels, sprockets, and idlers?  I know my Taigen Tiger does.

    Hi strippersteel, No discounts for forum members but we are offering free shipping to anyone that lives in the lower 48 US states. No, the Stug doesn’t come with metal tracks, but it does come with metal gears, front drive sprocket and rear idler.

    Hi DirtyBird69, We have been told there is a board called the Mako2 that will work with the Taigen IR tanks to make them Tamiya IR compatible. The Mako2 simply plugs in between the MFU and the rest of the IR battle system. Sorry, don’t know much about this board because I just found out about it. Has anybody used this board before on Taigen IR tanks???

    Hi strippersteel, Our Taigen Stug doesn't come with a metal lower hull. But hopefully there will be an upgrade for that later on this year.

    The Mako 2 does work with the Taigen tank BUT and here is the big one for basicly the same prive you can get Clark TK20 board and get rid of Taigens garbage electronics. The TK20 from Clark also gives proportional movement, way better sound and moves you into 2.4ghz quality radios, yes you have to buy the radio but if you haven't tried a real radio over the Taigen/HL ones then your in for a real treat.

    Unfortunately it does not, but you can purchase the metal Panzer 3/4 metal tracks in June and they will work just perfectly. I just pulled off a metal track from our Panzer 3 and put it on the Stug and it worked great.

    RE: New Taigen RC Tanks Available



    Well the Taigen Stug is not sounding very appealing since it doesn't include a metal lower nor metal tracks.  Once my checking account recovers I think i'm going to go with this.

    http://www.amazon.com/Sturmgeschutz-...ONG+STUG+METAL

    It a HL Stug with metal tracks for $169.00 and then I can upgrade it from there.  I want to eventually add a metal lower, metal eastern tracks and possibly a few other things.  I defiantly think the eastern tracks is the only way to run a Stug

    So what are "eastern tracks"?

    Are you referring to winterketten or osketten tracks?

    RE: New Taigen RC Tanks Available

    I think that is where I saw that gun tube the first time. Would be nice to have a US supplier for it. Hadn't heard that it was too short. The F2 and G used the same gun tube with different muzzle brakes; so, if it's too short for one... will have to look into that one.

    I think Welsh (from asiatam / taigen...?) carries the F2 / G barrel with both muzzle brakes included... but I read elsewhere that overall the barrel itself is too short for either version; but it's something to work with!

    RE: New Taigen RC Tanks Available

    The "Winterketten" and Ostketten ' tracks are actually 2 different types of track. Same purpose but one was an "Adhock" stop gap the other the Ostketten was a purpose built track for the Eastern front.Basically the same track as standard just much wider for more traction. Both types were generally only used in the winter and wet months because it was easy to break off the extension on hard ground.

    Nope....which is why I didn't buy one...the only tanks with metal chassis and torsion-bar suspension are the Tiger and KV-1....All the other tanks(so far) just standard HL set-up....which is probably why Taigen hasn't gotten off their butts and included some internal pics and complete upgrades breakdown as to what actually comes on each tank....shouldn't take this long to accomplish that.

    Thanks for the pics MAUS45 cause i never knew the difference.  Also sorry Panther F that I didn't use the exact correct terminology.  I'd hate to upset the World War 2 Tank gods lol.

    I like the Ostketten better myself...they look better I think. By the way, does anybody know where you can buy the Ostketten?
