Jeez,

Cheaper than the one I had 26 years ago. My dad paid about £120 for the kit in a fit of rare generosity on my 15th birthday (used to usually get £30 spent on me), but to be fair, I had to fight him for a go on "my" present.
£58 and free delivery for the car alone, if you just wanna build it for the memories or swap radio gear from another car.

Thunder shot here.with battery's that wouldn't even last 5 minutes. I think they were around 1200 my. I've seen someone's recently that were 5000. Maybe lithium Ion, or lipo?
Amazing bit of kit! Fun to build too
Still got the 4x4 hotshot !!
Does the new one still have those ceramic resistors that sat on the back of the gearbox that got so hot you would leave your skin on it if you touched them, probably needed for the mechanical 3 step speed controller.

I just remembered those were on my RC frog.

Had the lunchbox and midnight pumpkin truck, plus loads of others, bought sold and wrecked about 20 different Tamiyas... A 4wd drifter Subaru was the most fun on tarmac, new estate with lovely smooth black tarmac...
Yes, I'm still 12 years old, again...!

I had one of these!
I had a buggy champ back in the day

I ordered one of these for my 10 year old, but paid around £130 from "TimeTunnel Models" which included some up-rated parts (battery, bearings etc).

Personally, I think it sucks big time that the body shell comes in plain white instead of the smart design pictured on the box.
I might have to dig out my Wild One at some point, see if the batteries still work!
£83.50 from Modelsport
Get a tamiya lunch box 😁
