Back in the days when all I wanted was a Tamiya buggy to drive, I saved up for what seemed like a decade (probably a year), and finally bought the precious Falcon. It was build and driven daily for a long time. Few things broke, so really had the full value of build, drive, break and start over again. After driving the Falcon for a good time, I wanted to try 4wd. Had my mind sat on a Hotshot II, but never had it back then. Here almost 30 years later, I have both, and they pretty much sum up the retro of Tamiya for me.
