Saw that they will release the HONDA "Fit" and some other stuf...

The "Fit" is a special funny car here in Sweden, they changed the name from "Fitta" to "Fit" but its to late... The original name means like ( vagina ) here :D

Little shame tho, who wouldnt wanna ride in a real "fitta" ?? :D

oops sorry that should've read...

a new type of subaru....
the knight rider car (remember kitt the car?)...
ferrari 355...

oh well here's the page... it's in japanese though...

use a translator program to roughly translate what they are trying to say (http://babelfish.altavista.com/tr) copy website below and paste in translate webpage, then choose translate from japanese to english... good luck...

click on the hobby show report on the left hand window... aside from the mini-z there's lots more too... kawada, hpi, abc and yokomo...

hmm to buy or not to buy that is the question...
and if it is to buy... what shall i buy....

Look at the attached pic on those 2 wrc cars by Strider, betwen them it's a palm runner chassi. Is that what they want to show, palm runner/wrc kits? Anyone that could read those signs infront of the wrc's?

U can se the sign in front of the mitsubishi evo that says "40 Mhz".

Strider-
2002.05.23, 05:37 PM
It is palm runner...

The first line of the bigger characters says Subaru Impreza WRC
and the smaller print just above it says Palm Runner......

Thats really really nice.

The engine is in front of the rear axle wich can provide better mass repartition than the mini-z!
It seems 1:27 RC is going to have a huge success if other companies do follow. The choice of GT40 anc Cobra directly points to the US market :D
How about Tamiya to release a new Tam high-tech?

wow. That car looks pretty capable of whooping some A$$. It looks as if it has a low CG too.

Looks like it has room for micro electronics too.

HEHEHEH JUST KIDDING ALL MY STUFF IS GUN METAL AND SILVER HEH!!!!! COLOR DOES MATTER AND WHY WHOULD YOU WANT HPI COLORED STUFF ANYWAYZ!!! CUSTOMIZE CUSTOMIZE !!!!!! WHAHOO!!!! If you dont like the color then sand down the parts with fine grit sandpaper and paint over them SAME WITH BODIES!!!! DONT STAY STOCK MAKE URE OWN ADD TO THEM THAT AWESOME JAPANESE GUYS SITE TAKE HIS IDEA!!! THEY ARE SOO BADASS LOOKING!!!!:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Actually - all Tamiya would have to do is simply just re-release the exact same cars - they already are superior to the Z.

Has allot to do with the fact that they are powered by 7.2 Volts etc - however the rear suspension on the suckers is simply WAY better than the Z........

Perhaps it is a large chance that this will happen - as Tamiya have, in the last year or so, re-released some of their earlier classic 1/10th scale cars.......

Would simply love to see it happen...

Cheers

Darryn. i DO love u'r pages. It's like when I was a kid standing in the LHS looking at all those cars. But I diden't see my old kyosho. The offroad ER Tyota Hiace 1/10, it was a simpel r/c but it kicked ass on the track, at the time way back, it was faster and better on offroad than any tamiya i had. U'r in my favorites from now on.

ultrawide and out :D
