Exactly.

I have about $2000 in parts alone, the high price of these kits should keep originals from losing much of their value.

i have a fair bit i bruiser stuff too..i think your right on the price keeping to #s down..i think at first the value of the vintage might drop a bit but in the end it goes back up..after the novelty of the re re wears off

I'm stil saving for a Trail Finder. That Bruiser is just way too expensive for a lot of things I won't use anyway.

i was excited to hear about this at first, but after the sticker shock, i think i'd rather have the RC4WD. also, i think they kind of missed on the "improved" axles, they really should of went with 12mm hexes, instead of those crazy, old, propriatery hubs. bleh...

I'm not in a big hurry to buy one, I already did in 1989, and it drove like crap!
Axles are cool, but waaaay too wide. I'll pass.
However, it would be cool to get my mitts on some of those parts, the frame especially the shackles and u-bolts arent too shabby either.

Cruised around and found some detail pics....

I'd buy a chassis, leafs and hangers or hopefully originals will lose value so I can build another Bruiser hybrid.

I wanna buy one just for the Tamiya Battery Plugs. Taking it back old school. I'd rather spend $1200 on a real Toyota Pickup. RC4WD is gonna shit a brick on all thier pre orders for this Trailfinder. Its more scale, more capable and half the price. Sorry Tamiya....

I think Tamiya will cash in on nostalgia and RC4wd will still clean up with the rest of us who are into realism and performance. I think the Mountaineer would have been a better body set but thats personal opinion, I don't like the hub and tire choice either with all the new wheel and tire choices we have now. It will be hard to pay the high dollar and still buy upgrades. It was kinda funny when my son compared my scx10 frame rail to my bruiser frame "look dad, they're almost the same" Hmmmm.......

I don't think Tamiya is worried one bit.

This isn't marketed to the hard scale crawler.

I bet Bruisers outsell RC4WD trucks five to one across the entire market. Places like RPP, no, they'll sell a lot of Trailfinders, probably more than Bruisers, but when you add in Horizon and Tower and every hobby shop across the country, Bruisers will sell left and right.

The new Trailfinder is an awesome truck, I'm likely buying one. And I'm also buying a Bruiser. They'll never be used for the same thing.

I'm a bit disappointed they changed the cast of the axles, they used to look like Toyota/Aisin axles, but now they look like Dana axles.

Could be cool to some?

I would like to know more about the axles, like the innards, are they durable?

I like it though, won't get rid of mine because of it.

May have to get parts off of one to make the Ultimate Bruiser!
