I have a tamiya .18 TNX, and it is a great truck. I have heard the 5.2 version of this truck is pretty awesome also. The big question with tamiya is parts availability. For all out durability, speed etc I prefer a losi lst 2, but many favor the savages also which comes in many flavors. The same goes for the mgt family. All are sturdy and have good parts availability.

The TNX is great its just the parts resources I question

I've got the TNX 5.2R and LOVE it for bashing and beating around the track. Things tough no doubt about it, but I agree about parts problems.

I blew the slipper a few months back, along with the clutchbell and had to order direct from Tamiya USA as my LHS had all the needed parts listed as discontiunued

Other than that, LOVE the truck!!

Speaking of parts....lost 2nd gear in my TNX tonight.....along with all rear diff power. Rear diff just rolled around, following the frontend

Insane truck,,,,,I have a Tamiya TNX 5.2R...Brand new)..and it's incerdible.....It'll outrun almost anything I have seen...BUT...it all comes back to the parts issue...I blew the clutch out of it..(Common I hear)..and parts had to come from Singapore...and they weren't cheap....Other than that..I highly recommend this truck to anyone........It hums..!!!
