Cheers ash - you're the first one to mention the new photo 'thing' I've been using to display larger images. It's a PAIN to add, but if people like it I'll keep doing it.

Sweet! I know you've heard this a thousand times but - Great review as always!
I think I'll sell my mini-T and get one of these so that the local Tamiya track will let me play with mini buggies again. Really love the real buggy look!

Love it Jimmy, very good write up but you convinced me to buy one even before I saw this

The bank account hurts this morning!

Well done Jimmy, another great review. A couple of days left in HK - this calls for another trip to the rc shops!

Jimmy,
I've a question about the GB-02 Buggy Champ. Does it use different front wheels than the GB-01? I've looked through all the pictures and I didn't see any hexes, so I'm a bit worried about buying the wrong rims. Thanks.

the hexes on the front of the GB02 buggy champ are round instead of being hex shaped - since there's no 'drive' at the front it doesn't make a difference. The round 'hex' just fits inside the normal hex shape on the wheels.

Ah, thanks. I can still swap wheels with the mini Hotshot when I get it later then. Sweet!

Love the review, as always.

The original Rough Rider was one of my first cars (I was really young), and remember it fondly.

What's up with the chrome rims. Have not seen those elsewhere. Hop up part, or sprayed?

Most excellent review Jimmy. Prime source of information, and probably the best I've seen accross the net!


So, I have to ask. How is the car holding up for you now?
Any other recent mods? Any problems?

Are you still running the 6V Graupner Speed 300?





When purchasing the "SHORT" shock bodies for the aeration dampers, do you purchase two kit packages? On the package it says (2 Sets), but I can only see 2 bodies in there. So, that leads me to ask, did you put the short bodies only on the front shocks, or did you put short bodies on all four, including the rear??? Please let me know!

Sadly Tamtech's don't get much love except in Japan. I wish they did, I love mine.

The short bodies are only used on the front - the rear uses the normal longer bodies. Not sure if Tamiya produce a proper set yet (short and long together) as it's been a while.
I sold my TamTechs - I just wasn't racing at the time, but I wish I hadn't sold the GB02 as it was a really nice buggy and I'd put a lot of love into it.
