Default Tamiya Tundra Coming Oct Pre Orders welcome

Got The News From Tamiya Today that the Tundra Should Be In Late Oct

RC Toyota Tundra Highlift - 4x4-3SPD



Pre Order Due in Late Oct 08
  • Price : $499.99








The durable ladder frame chassis features steel channels and resin cross members for high strength.
Equipped amidships for a lower center of gravity is a 3-speed transmission allowing gear changing and realistic low speed driving.
Propeller shafts and slipper clutch efficiently transfer power to all wheels on any type ofterrain.
Powered by a type 540 motor. (included)
The full-time 4WD guarantees road hugging performance.
The differential can be locked in place to enable improved performance on any surface it may face.
The newly designed chrome plated wheels with bead lock rings precisely catch the essence of the Pick-up truck. Because the Tundra is fitted with similar side-block tires like the F-350 (58397), it is possible to change them with any other cross country tires.
4-Channel transmitter, ESC, and running battery & charger are separately available.
Use TS Sprays to paint your Tundra the desired color
Loading the separately available Pick-Up Truck Multi-Function Unit (Item 53957) MFC-02 will further enhance the truck and put a wide range of realistic light, sound, and vibration effects at your fingertips.
For dressing-up the model, snow boards (2) and roof racks are included.

Updated info
Wheelbase 12 1/4"
Chassis Length 17 1/4"
Body Length 18 1/4" (Bumper to Bumper)

In regards to the price I already set my price 30.00 lower than Tower Hobbies advertized. I think they will drop their price though I think my price is going to be right in line, but if something changes I will adjust any pre order price in the event I lower mine.

I am honestly afriad to speculate. I ordered all Hi Lux body parts in Nov 07 and am still waiting on the grilles almost a year later. I am realisticaly thinking it will be 2-3 months after the kit is out before we see the body parts in the US :-(

Hmmm...don't you think that there occured an error regarding the grilles?
E.g. Modellbau Seidel has them in stock since months (years?)
