Default Re-Re-Release Tamiyas coming !!!

Hi all,

For those who are interested.

It looks like Tamiya are Re-Releasing more Tamiyas.

I have just pre-ordered the Top Force, but looking on the website of the modelshop, it looks like these are coming also,

Top Force
Avante
Boomerang
Bigwig
Fox

and more coming.............

At last we can run these now without mega expensive spares.......

Hi Jez,

I ordered mine through ModelSportUK. These were the only model shop that actually got back to me. I tried a couple of shops.

They are £179.00 I ordered 2 of them at that price......

Mmm Tamiya are the most expensive cars and spares out there and doubt it will be cheap.

I ran one last year with saddles. I think you can run it with shorty Jez, but you would have to see about the cradle to hold it in and re-drill the chassis to suit matey.

i see thanks.i see how the b44 cradles sit.i think the hot bodies ones are same?not cheap but ok if you know someone with spare new ones as they run shorties.i suppose you could run super shorties instead and have a different install?seeing as i will be running 17.5 blinky thats maybe what i will do.cuts weight down a fair bit too.

the Top Force now seems to have sold out in most places, is that it then or do we think the shops will get more in?

Would love an Avante but they're sooooo much money!

https://www.modelsport.co.uk/rc-elec...&ChassisID=787

The Top Force looks a better price but I think I'd want to hop it up to Evo spec and that'll also push it to Avante money...

Holy cow why are they so much. Avante and predator are the only 2 cats I ever wanted more than the ones I had.

The boomerang on the other hand seems a reasonable price. Me and my dad both ran one in the tamiya challenge where you could win vouchers depending on how well you did. We won enough to get a whole other boomerang for free

So these are re-releases of models that have previously been re-released?

Does this mean that there's a possibility that the Thunder Shot will be re-re-released in the near future?

I badly want one, but missed out on the first re-release.
