4x4 Hilux release soon!

Post by FifthScaleRacer »

Hey sorry of this is a repost...but I just found out that the hilux will be released. Is this on the original Bruiser chassis?

my guess would be that its on the high lift chassis. I know some of the bruiser molds were broken a long time ago, hence the lack of a reissue.

Go to the forum and look under the General section. You will see the thread. Unless I missed something, looks to me that yes it is going to be released, but the specifics are still just speculation at this point. Another good site for immediate Tamiya news (when it happens) is from a former Mod there DJtheo.... http://www.tamiayblog.com. He is usually the first to have pics posted of stuff.

Try here http://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=38083&st=20&p=230719&#entry230719
for an insider description of it. Bakaguyjean works for one of Japans model stores so has access to the prerelease information the shops are supposed to keep quiet about.




Just visited Theos site and seen the new SUV - and we thought the Touareg was ugly :oops:

Yes it's a high lift chassis. I don't think it was ever purported to be anything different

A Mountaineer body on a High Lift. Defintely needs 2.2 wheels. That's a 1:9 scale body.
