Looking good. I know the CR-01 can't compete with modern rigs but Tamiya's engineering always appeals to me. Still on the look out for the jeep version but they command stupid prices.

I didn't know much at all about the rc crawler scene when I got this,I spent a few years building tamiya 1/16 tanks then woke up one morning sold the tanks and bought 3 tamiya trucks,a stadium thunder,a clod buster and the rocksocker kit.
I'm trying to decide what to get next so am reading as much as I can to get up to speed.

I don't compete, don't even know what the crawler/scaler scene is like where I live. I run what
1. Interests me
2. I can afford.

My current wish list is a CR-01, a Tamiya Jaegermeister Capri, and a Cross MC 8. When funds allow.

I had a look at the Capri Bryan because I'd not heard of one and that's way cool,I'm guessing we are a similar age ( it looks a lot like the zakspeed Capri I grew up wanting lol)
We have an rc club about 10 mins from where I live with a tarmac track so I should realy build some kind of touring car and go join in.

Just got to find a buyer for a kidney because I now want an axial bomber and a touring car lol

Nice looking CR-01! They are very cool trucks because of the unique engineering like most Tamiyas.

If you ever want to get upgrades for the truck start with new tires.

A lot of it depends on your terrain. Here on the rocky, wooded East Coast of the US I prefer Proline Hyrax or Super Swampers and Pitbull Rock Beasts.

Having fun is what RC is all about, compete if you desire, otherwise and always have fun either way!
Good way to decide on vehicles.
