Buggy Champ

Tamiya released some new TamTech cars. I liked these from the start, but I didn't really like the bodies they had for it... Until this one came out.

The car is supplied ready-to-run, and not in the traditional way, but actually seriously ready to run: ballbearings included, all you need is a battery and you're off. I just added the sport tuned motor and that's it! Car runs fine, real fun, but the springs are badly tuned: they're way too soft in the back, and just coils. I will be fitting oilfilled shocks when I find some, but I haven't yet.

The suspension: easy to adjust camber by just screwing the ballends.

The sporttuned motor: packs a bit more punch than the original one.

Transmitter, speedo: all nicely tucked away in the belly.

Cool steering system.

Slipper clutch come standard. It was, however, correctly tightened when I got the car. I played around with it, but eventually ended up with more or less the factory setting.
