peterphillipps & the mad modder ive also heard about that truck it will be available from early febuary 2012. about the truck The Tamiya R/C VW Camper Van is the latest in a long line of Tamiya radio controlled off road monster truck models that has a fantastic new look and is built to impress!

This R/C assembly kit depicts a 1st-generation (T1) variant of the Volkswagen Type 2 van, which was also known as the Volkswagen Bus to many of its legions of fans. Tamiya has reproduced this machine with a comical appearance in polycarbonate with driver figure to result in this fun-filled model. The new WR-02 chassis is equipped with a wheelie bar to enable exciting, wheels in the air Wheelie driving action. Tyres / wheels & Gear Box / motor come ready assembled. First production run is fully ballraced so buy early! hope this helps

So they aren't allowed to make colorful, fun cars, only high end racing ones?

BTW, this thread is almost a year old.
