Re: What are some of your other hobbies?
Of course its good to be able to get current parts for your new cars. These Tamiya classics are basically to be put together, painted beautifully and then never used. Their pastic gears shocks and tub chassis' and resister based manual speed controls are so crappy that they would break 10x faster than the current cars. I was racing my RC10 B4 stealth a few weeks ago and someone turned on their radio with the same frequency and my car plowed right into a wall at about 30mph and nothing broke. If i did that with a Frog or a Hot Shot, it would be destroyed.
