    Hey there, where is everyone buying their HL tanks and upgrades these days?

    I couldn't wait. Price drop be damned. I placed my pre-order with RPP and used the $20 discount. Free shipping too.

    $729.99 all said and done. Compare to Tower and Horizon at $799 or so.

    The manual is up as well.

    Looks like we get to assemble the gear box, axles, everything except the chassis, they put that together.

    Nice find. Seeing it next to the Unimog and Semis is great. Get an idea of it's size.

    RPP Hobby has it listed on preorder for $750 now.

    RE: Tamiya 58519: Toyota Bruiser returns!!

    In reading up on the history of the Bruiser, the 750 was used because back when the Bruiser was new, a stock Tamiya 540 motor wasn't strong enough to get the job done with the 6V the big custom...

    I agree. It's not Tamiya's job to suuport the collector market and their prices.

    Tamiya's customers have been asking for a Bruiser rerelease since the 90s. They finally did it to the...

    I see the Tyrell four wheel steering Formula 1 car is making another comeback too. I think this is the third or fourth release for that kit.

    I'm really excited about this.

    MSRP of $1295 like was said and I think the dealers won't be marking it down by much. These will fly off the shelves at full price.

    Let's hope Lunchboxer was...

    Does it have to be off road?

    I just ordered this because it will be pretty unique for a little road course. Lots of Mini Coopers out there, not too many CRXs....yet.

    It's too bad that Tamiya couldn't have re-released it with a more compatible chassis and the original Grasshopper paddle tires.

    Say what? Being a hobbyist of alltypes of R/C, plane ESCs most certainly have a neutral point.
  18. RE: Largest Wingspan Beginner Float Plane RTF/ARF

    Thunder Tiger Beaver with floats is about 5 foot, high wing and dirt cheap, plus ABS, so very watertight(not waterproof) and fuel proof.

    Toss a .53 in it from SiG for $70.

    RE: Venom VMX 450

    It's bigger than the Duratrax bike. Duratrax is 1/5th scale, this is 1/4 scale they say. Venom says their bike is near 22" in length, DTX is 17" and change so it's not the same bike. The DTX bike...

    RE: Nitroplanes Canadair Twin

    You can dip them in epoxy, but then they can't cool off as well.

    If you open up the back of the necelle to let air in the front and a little out the back I'm sure you'll be fine. They come...

    Is this the blue and yellow one they sell? Love the look and the price is right, but the colors give me a seizure, would certainly need a repaint.
