Im going brushless anyway so I dont care about it not coming with an ESC or the stock motors....Those wheels are tires are gone too, they would look better on a wheely king so Ill sell those off....I like the truck

2 27's no way i wanna have a little speed out of this was thinking 15's or 12's
What dual motor ECS is 20.00????

Bushless might be cool but would be a lot more motor & ECS. For what they charge it should come with the full set.

Or brushless out of the box there kits are cool but way behind the times

Tamiya is all about kits, not RTRs so I didnt expect anything more than wat we got....If we want RTR gonna have to get Axials attention like I said before.... You can go single brushless and get a good system and your fine...there are sum that are not too expensive.. or high powered brushed with a MMP and sum really hot brushed motors...I would run 1 550 sized can system or a high amp ESC and a good 540 can....Revos shafts (inexpensive upgrade), and your ready to go...Most of us are changing the wheels and tires anyway

The two frame "plates" come with the plastic molded over the aluminum rods and they look pretty good.

They look okay but IMO I think the truck would look better if there were cut-outs to see the truck's innards. I'm sure guys will be fabbing up their own plates in no time.

Black suspension links are very cool and the rodends seem a lot stronger than the TXT ones (as far as I can remember) so that's a good thing.

It's been mentioned before but the shell is a nice representation of the modern BIGFOOT and with larger Clod sized tires I think the truck looks pretty good. Chassis wise, it's probably the closest thing to scale that Tamiya have done.

TamiyaUSA.com - Building the TXT-2 AGRIOS

found tamiya's build thread for it. It's awesome they at least listened to people asking for a second txt, although I liked the idea of cantilever suspension more than scale look on a truck that size.

just want a price now for canada and the states seeing they sell it in europe for 350 euros.

Those tires....

Way to drop the ball, Tamiya.... Urgh!

I can only hope that Tamiya decides to re-release the TXT-1 wheels. The Clod wheels apparently hit the springs. Shame.

I dó like the frame and black links, though. I already ordered the top-deck and body. Oh, ánd oodles of top-gears and diffs. And a couple of bags with the axle-parts. Those were the things that kept breaking, even with two mild 19t quad Orions on 8.4v

At least nowadays' powerful brushless motors nixed the need for two motors.

(Think of it: 2 silver cans combined make, at best 80 to 100 watts in power, one 10.5t stock-spec x12 coughs-up 306 watts already.... With torque to match.)

Tamiya could have, at least for that price, included two of their "torque-tuned" silver-cans. Those rs540sh's are a joke. Although, I have run those on 11.1v in my Juggy without a lot of trouble. They wear pretty quick on that sort of voltage, but they survive. Still, my single-motor LRP x12 powered TXT runs circles around it on 11.1v...

Alls I'll say is that this truck was going to look MUCH cooler had Tamiya released it as initially planned instead of changing their mind last minute. I think the body shows where they were going with it....

I wonder.

Did Tamiya have plans to licence Bigfoot 18 -or its looks, to be more precise- but the deal fell through?
Something like that happened years ago with the Schlesser Paris-Dakar buggy. They had a prototype and all, but it was cancelled. Tamiya has licenced oodles of racing car-liveries, so, why not Bigfoot?

The body, the frame of the Agrios, all of it reeks like the next-gen Bigfoot 18 and 19.

Come to think of it, Tamiya should try to licence the Bigfoot 20 body. That thing ís actually electric... That would be réally cool..... . Talk about "technological convergence"

Yes it was supposed to be Bigfoot 18 but Tamiya backed out at the last minute but kept the body design....There is supposed to be another truck or 2 on this plateform or similar bein released...

I hope You're right. I could always use a couple of Tamiya-Quality realistic bodies for the TXT.

By the by, I discovered that Jugg tyres and wheels fit fine with the help of some CPE drive hubs for TXT to fit Clodbuster tyres.

The Jugg wheels perform quite a bit better than the Clod tyres. (Not for crawling, though) They are a tad harder, and make the TXT steer more predictable imho.

Not a huge fan but this could work to our advantage. New people buying it will hear about the first version and maybe that means more aftermarket parts availability! It's so hard to find anything for the -1's :(

Being an old Tamiya fan I recognized them wheels that no one seems to like on the New TXT - 2
There From The: Tamiya Mammoth Dump Truck. ~ They just have a Satin finish and not Chrome.
But I am sure that a lot of you already knew that !!!

Up-Date ~ { My Bad, The closer I looked at the two they are different } Opp's
