Default Childhood dream finally happened

I spent my childhood dreaming about owning so many of these tamiya cars. The bruiser being one of them. The price tag made it unachievable as a kid mowing grandpas lawn for $3.50 a week. As an adult I have managed to spoil that young kid. Today my bruiser is about 90% complete on the build. I still need to paint and install my driver and wire up a light set. This one is a huge achievement for my collection.

Very cool bruiser. The color is amazing an the tire and wheel combo is perfect. I remember seeing your bruiser on Facebook: Vintage Tamiya other RC.
