I really like those but I think I'd prefer an axial or other more competative crawler and just put a Cruiser body on it.

Something like this with a 40 body on it.

This one is really cool.

Wow, this takes me back... I used to have a couple of Tamiya dune buggies.

They make a great product.

Tamiya used to have a VW Beetle kit that I think was almost water proof. Does anyone remember that?

I never had a tamyia just Losi, Associated, Yokomo & durtrax.

I now race Losi, Associated, and Traxxas electric offroad.

This is the one I'd like to get for my son. Maybe he'll let me have a turn.

This one is sold as a complete Truck, radio, ESC, battery,charger for $230
I'd want, I mean... he'd need a better charger and battery.

Santa are you listening?

Cool but it looks like it could use a high steer mod :)

Yeah I noticed that, and actually got hung up on the tie rod on that very obstacle. I can see no limit of modifications to these things.. I went to Hobby Town USA today and dropped money on a new battery and new charger, putting the battery inventory up to 3 (2 really old ones, 1 new one).

And I just rolled it coming off the patio.. now it turns but won't go? I guess I need to find a fuse or something.. :o:confused:

Well it ain't snagged yet, my top end is about $50 including shipping.. which is a lot to pay for a piece of formed plastic!

Yeah I will get back to Hobby Town one of these lunches.. vendor night at Cruise Moab kind of took its toll on the poor child.. somehow we broke a control arm link, blew out a shock, and bent the drag link in front. I also have a bent axle from the PO.. could be time for some downtime for a little R&R. :o

Alas, I am no longer the high bidder.. looks like I may be wheeling a 40 for a little while longer.

I saw some of those obstacles at the Slick Rock campground, I'm surprised you didn't have more body damage. :)

Mike's toys thread made me look at RC videos for the past hour or so... :doh: but this is one of the better FJ-40 builds/vids I've seen. He actually reminds me of someone in the club (wheelin' style) see if you can guess? :)

That's a CC-01.. looks like it's open in front, and a little smaller than the CR-01? About the same size an the SCX10. Anyone know all the differences, in these RTR groups?
