Stunning car! Not so stunning price!..

By moosey - Saturday 10th March 2012
 

What an amazing looking bit of kit! LOVE IT!!! I do like the original box art but this is nice too. Prices are high though and these were never that good to run in the first place. So a lot of cash to have on the shelf doing nothing and it's not even vintage? I'm saying nothing about the Bush Devil 2 :-/
Sorry to put a downer on things all the time, but Tamiya are trying to make 'money out of old rope' so to speak. They need to concentrate on fantastic new R/C car idea's.. MODERN CLASSICS?

3rd Time lucky?

Yes it's true, the old XR311 has now been released 3 times! I still love those tyres though! Shame they don't fit anything else.

Love the XR311 just bought the new one but why release it three times and not re release the Cheetah.

'Super' Hotshot!?

By moosey - Saturday 18th February 2012
 

I must admit I'm really fed up of Tamiya re-releasing everything from the first 100. But, this is one that got me a little excited as it's one of my all time favourites!!! What is going on with the name though??????? Why not just call it a 'Supershot'? Coming soon anyway...

moosey, why are you fed up with Tamiya re-releasing?

 

The Bruiser is BACK!!!

By Stevo309 - Wednesday 1st February 2012
 

It seems that absolutely anything is possible when it comes to these re-releases from Tamiya and they are never going to end! The latest shocker is the Bruiser release just announced! I like what Tamiya have done with this one by creating a more modern and reliable 3-speed gearbox and axles but the price tag might scare some people, retail being quoted at $1295! Hopefully this hefty price tag and the changes will help preserve the value of the original but i doubt it!
