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.

Ah, I see. Thanks for the reply.
No, I haven't seen an aeration kit yet that has the correct combination... But no worries now, I picked up the short bodies. Appreciate the tip.

Too bad you sold'em off, fun stuff!! I've had my GB02 well over a year now, and did actually lose interest at one point since then, but now I've got several friends who are getting into it because it's fairly cheap, and we're having a blast!



Jamus, I agree... doesn't seem to be much going on with these cars outside of Japan. And yeah, man, here there are some hardcore nuts over these cars. Some of the home-job mods and precise calculations on set-up are incredibly amazing here. I've found some great blogs on the GB03, but all in Nihon-go. Most people here are running custom dual front shock set-ups on the GB03 chassis but with regular GB01 bodies attached. Looks slick, and with 4WD.

yeah... most text is just very technical information...

Here is a quick photo. GB03 with hotshot body is his brother's. He cut and drilled and custom carbon fiber shock tower for the front, similar to GB01, not like on the "desert gator GB03" in the above links I posted, which was more of a stacked adapter type set-up.





...also wild boar rear tires, and I think 1/12 scale front tires/wheels... Looks fun. They apparantly ran these at the Tamiya outdoor track.... took a trip there or something.

The Hotshot mod is a lot better looking

Jimmy, any chance you managed to snap a pic of your front suspension mod (moving the mounting points further back)?

had a quick look and they're not in my buggy champ folder so either they're in some random folder somewhere or they're gone made me all sad looking thru my photos - it was too nice to sell

Sorry to put you through it. Hope you'll consider making another TTG review when and if Tamiya comes up with a new one.

ooooh, what do you forsee in the future... maybe an Avante GB-03?
Or even a boomerang or something would be cool!

Haha no idea. All I know is if it comes along and Jimmy gives it a thumbs up review, I'm going to be broke again.
