I remember when I was mid-teens a pay had a Tamiya Hotshot and I used to go watch him race it every Tuesday, properly jealous that I didn't have one. A couple of years later I finally got one, a Kyosho Lazer Alpha and had a lot of fun with it.I still have it at home, and found it a few months ago. I put batteries in the controller but not a lot of luck and gave up quite quickly. However, now I'm a Dad I'm tempted to try again, especially reading this thread. We were in Hamley's last week and they had a Midnight Pumpkin and a few others, I love the building side as well so tempted to get rid of the Alpha and get a new one. That being said, i could do both :)Can anyone recommend some forums or anything to read through, that may also be able to help my bring my Alpha back to life? Not the end of the world if I have to sell it, it's boxed and in VGC

The mains goes into a transformer, and comes out as low voltage DC. The same as, you've guessed it, this battery thing. (_;)

how long do the batteries last?



Lasts better than I expected - My kids been playing with it from a few days now - using the unbranded out of box batteries we got included and there are 3 speed settings - he has been running it on high speed and playing the horn and station announcement with the lights on - still running.

Shame Tamiya is incredibly poor quality. There are much better brands … Shame Tamiya is incredibly poor quality. There are much better brands available for about the same money - for example Maverick. Admittedly I'd rather see Tamiya purchased than the cheap naff stuff from the likes of eBay and nitrotek, but still... I'd recommend visiting a brick and mortar model shop and picking up a Tamiya and comparing it to other brands first...!


I picked up a 1:18 Maverick Ion XT last year, fab little truggy and was only £78 and very quick.
Still some Maverick IONs on amazon for around that price, but this looks like a great deal too. Heat!

I remember buying a second hand Tamia Rough Rider in a Stevenage model shop back in the 80's and converted it to a Sand Scorcher, I'm sure I paid over £100 back then, are all the parts as robust as they were back then (my dad kicked mine when I wouldn't come in and do my homework) if they are then this is a real bargain for a car. heat added

It was also great time spent together and you can't put a price on that.It's a great way to teach kids about engineering and electronics.

No motor maintenance either thanks to brushless motors. We also have Lipo batteries that last for ages! It's a great time for RC!


Don't get me wrong I loved building them ,everything is made to easy these days, even the majority of Nitro kits are RTR too which is a shame.

Couldn't agree more - quality time spent with my dad for a few years when I was racing. Love the idea of not going through a pair of motor brushes every few meetings, skimming the comm.........and just about getting the 5 minutes race distance out of a £40 battery pack with modern technology.

Just to advise people looking at this offer, the kit car is now sold out. At time of wring (11:15 on Sat 8th Dec) we have one of each colour of ready to run. No more due in.

I have just purchased this item and im really happy with the outcome. In exchange for £115 I got the charger upgraded and an additional battery, after searching around this deal seems to be the best by a longshot. I found the company very helpful and professional and would use again hope this helps anyone considering this deal.

You just put the bearings in wherever the same sized plastic or brass bearing is shown in the instructions - the little one goes in the gearbox, as do 5 of the larger ones - the other 4 go in the front wheel hubs.

Original Poster

I got the bearing set and am setting up tomorrow. Do the instructions include what to do with the bearings??

First ever build

I have a fair few RC cars, (I race them) but I also have a lunchbox which is about 20 years old and most sundays its bashing about on the park. I stripped it down and rebuilt it with my 8yo son. They are very simple to build, and there are lots of cheap spares and modifications you can have for them

I would recommend the bearing set for £5, this will give you longer running times (the drive train will be smoother)/

Back in the 80's I had a Frog and a petrol engine car(wish i could remember name). In my street there were about 7/8 other kids with Grasshoppers,Hornets etc Sunday afternoons all of us out in the street having races, building jumps and my speciality going underneath real cars as they drive up the street.

Try this site, I got my kids the rock crawler and the service was very good.

Have a look here http://www.modelsport.co.uk/?CallFunction=Category&CategoryID=992010

you want an RTR (ready to roll) car as it will come with all the bits ready to go.

Look for 2.4GHz radio & really you want Lipo(Lipoly) battiers not Nihms. Lipolys are higher capacity & give greater performance than Nihms(Nickel metal Hydride). I see some of the models on here are 2.4GHz but are shipping with NIHM's still. Normal cars are 1:10th scale but I know a year back 1:18 scale cars were shipping with 2.4 & Lipo..
