It’s Time To Build The Tamiya Bruiser

Mar 02, 2012 4 Comments by

It’s time–I’m starting the Bruiser build, and I plan to document it in photos and video as I go.

I’m already aware that others on the world wide interwebz have their own builds of this truck going.  Save your snippy comments for Kevin Hetmanski’s weekly RC Show performance.  I plan to offer some different building tips, tricks, and a bit of off the wall humor along the way.  This is how I build my vehicles and I’d love for you to come along for the ride.

I have no plans to build this Bruiser in record time, so be patient.  I have lots of MW3 to play lots of work projects going.  I want to do this truck up the right way.  So however long it takes is how long it takes.  I know the finished product will be worth it.

Check back here and follow us on Facebook for the latest updates.  I’ll post both places and will welcome your questions & comments about the truck.  Let’s have some fun.

About the author

Executive Editor I jumped into R/C back in 1987, when mechanical speed controllers and hard rubber tires were all the rage. Since then, I’ve experienced R/C in almost every state in the USA. I've built and raced every type of RC vehicle created, and traveled throughout the country (and world) to attend and cover more R/C events than I can remember. But what a fun ride it's been! I'm fortunate to live in Southern California, and I take advantage of my location by enjoying R/C outdoors year ‘round. Club racing is the future for R/C growth, and I’m always looking to bring new people into the hobby, whether it’s through backyard bashing or organized racing.

    I will be looking forward to your updates on this project.
    This car has a special place in my heart since it is the car that sparked the “RC Flame” in me way back when i was 11 years old. Now i am 38, a father of 2 boys age 6 and 8 and i am still racing with my buddies from my local club. Enjoy the build and please keep us posted as much as possible!

    A cooworker just picked one up from the LHS and brought it in to open it. Looks sweet, but more $$ then I am willing to spend. very interested in the build along though.
