- Just bought a new Tamiya RC car and need help !!
can i make a warning here… you are on a slippy slope!
i bought my kid a tamiya offroad buggy a couple of years back. did all the research and got the best most powerful motor one for the cash. had a blast building it (xmas day with whisky) and its a scream to drive. way faster than expected. battery time is silly low though, 15mins at full chat.
so my warning is they are fun, but on batteries no, thats why i’m starting to look for a nitro one for him. uh oh, faster, louder… more toys! : )Posted 4 years agoskiMember
Demonracer – that is awesome 😉
A few years back a group of 8 mates all bought a tamiya mad bull each, used to race them all together once a month, great times, but as mentioned above, modifications started to take over and the original fun slowly ebbed away as some of the cars became rocket ships, while others were held together with fibreglass and arildite 😉
Watching eight equally matched cars gunning for the first bend and watching the carnage was a sight to cherish…

gav, mine was standard, apart from aralditing and bracing the front end up a bit, to help with the steering, did make a fiberglass shell for it though. 😉
But others from our party, put in bigger turn motors, electronic speed controllers, and hop up suspension, very quick off the line.
Once you start with a simple upgrade, be warned, it starts a chain reaction, as every other component then seems to need to be upgraded too 😉
Great fun on dusty BMX tracks where the mad bull were sliding most of the way round 😉Posted 4 years agostumpy_m4Member
@ Rocketdog …. Thats Franklys track isn’t it ? …. have raced there plenty of times when i raced 1/8th nitros …. even helped lay the track when the club was formed there ….. if you think bikes are expensive to run , you should try these ! ….. uber expensive to run competitively with nitro fuel at £30 plus a gallon !Posted 4 years ago
