Sorry if there is already a thread on this but is anybody else a fan of the Tamiya RC Cars.

Recently rebuilt my Boomerang from the late 80's and just purchased a Re release of the Avanti and Wild One.

Will get some pictures up soon.

Since a nipper I have always wanted to build one from scratch with the Rothmans Porsche 959 being my dream .... Maybe one day it will happen.

currently I'm trying restore my orginal 80s Wild Willys and Rough Rider.

Sons got a modern 4x4 Tamiya Neo Srotcher with TT-02B chassis. Its great fun to drive.

Re:

Collecting the classics was my hobby before retro bikes. Sold them all in the end to finance old bikes though. :roll:

Would love another Egress. :cool:

Here's a few of my old ones.

Re:

Loving the Avante. I've just bought myself the re release but I think it'll stay in the box for a little while :cool:

Also just got myself a King Blackfoot :D

Hehehe I used to race a Boomerang on a Sunday at Bury. Good few years spent with holes down the front of my jeans because of car battery acid. Upgraded to a Mid after that.


Happy days. Still have a look on ebay every now and again (wish we had t'internet back then for that stuff) But don't have enough time in the day as it is. Might pick up a Cat and restore it.


Have you seen the speed of the bloody things these days with the brushless motors?

I had a f150 with torsion bar suspension and very heavily modified boomerang :D

Got a Mardave mini and Marurdar (however it's spelt) now :D
