My lil writeup is finished but I'm on with other stuff so not posting it up just yet. I finished off my Buggy Champ with some custom stickers and new chrome wheels (don't scratch them mr.harris!) and some other trick bits.

Come on Jimmy post up yer writeup(please)always a great read,in the meantime may i offer a bit of info that might help a little.
If it treads on yer toes Jimmy,feel free to delete it fella.

The 1/16 TTG lineup so far,
Off road,
2WD,
Buggy Champ (rough Rider) GB02 chassis(it`s mainly the front end,body shell and tyres that is different to the GB01 and there is a front end conversion kit),
Frog GB01,
Hornet GB01,
Fox(with gold plated wheels)GB01,
Desert Gator GB01,
Wild Boar truck thing GB01,
GB01 chassis kit for those on a budget.

4WD
Hotshot,GB03.

Onroad,
Porsche 934 ,GT01 ,there are 2 RTR versions and a kit build of this loverly short wheelbase car.
Then a Ferrari 288GTO, GT01 chassis set to Long wheelbase available in RTR and kit build versions.
The body sets are beutifully detailed and not to expensive(if you buy direct from Japan).IMHO it is better value to buy RTR and flog the bits you don`t need.
Loads of alloy and hopups are available.
Battery packs are the same as RC18 type and cheap.
All TTG`s are very slow with the standard motor but the red end capped Sport Tuned black motor livens them up a bit,for about 3 to 7 depending where you get them from,
But you can`t beat a good old high Kv rated brushless in there,not for the faint hearted though ;)
Please buy one and race it,you know it makes sence :)

A couple of pic`s of my on road collection.

WOW! what a collection!!!
I've not seen the mini hotshot in the flesh yet but wow, I want one! haha.

Vickys gonna race the mini frog - but also with the GB02 front end on it.


Oh, and for those not 'in the know' the original rough rider had RMR and 'rob mitchell racing' down the side - this has 'jimmy oople racing' and JOR - bit obscure if you don't know your history I guess haha.

Just that picture alone makes me want one. I wonder why they called it a Buggy Champ and not a Rough Rider. It looks so authentic. Will have to decide between this and the mini Hotshot.

I think these little cars are great. My orange Buggy Champ is a runner with the sports motor. The blue buggy chanmp was built for fun. (My first build in 30 years!)

Looking forward to getting a GB03 kit.

Would be nice to see them race in a low cost, high fun class.
