Tamiya has remained loyal to old school 1/10 scale froaders for 45 years now. I raced a Tamiya Hotshot (first comp 4wd they made) 40 years ago. Had over $1,200 in the darned thing. Couldn't even hold a candle next to Team Associated rc10's.
Got me a modern Traxxas UDR last year for less than I had in my 40 year old hopped up hotshot. Holy crap, these new generation R/C's are fun as heck. Turn key, fully assembled, and faster than the average r/c-er can handle.
Large and durable as well.
