    When the shops are open again, I want to look for a Tamiya 4x4 of some sort. Something as close as possible to real life stock 4x4.....just not sure what they cost!

    Barto, how about us buying together, to save on shipping?

    Sigh....

    Gerhard, your postings are enough to drive me to drink....

    First you post pictures of your 33" tyres, so I start drooling and want some...

    Now you post pictures of RC 4x4's, so I drool more....

    Please stop!!!

    Eric, that was temporary while I was waiting for the insurance to replace the tupperware

    Gerhard, that's my friend's RC car he bought in China while he was working there for a few months.

    Another friend of mine also has a similar one he bought at hobby shop in PE. I don't like the petrol powered one, too labour intensive, too powerfull for their strenth and break easily, cannot reverse, not good for low speed crawling, etc. But that's just mine opinion, and it's still huge fun when I get to play with their cars!

    I object to petrol simply because they are far too noisy!!
