WHY ARE WE NOT RACING THESE?

WHY ARE WE NOT RACING THESE?

I hereby proclaim that we all need to be racing Tamiya Honda City Turbos. There’s nothing remotely race-worthy about it (heck, it’s designed to do wheelies), which is why I want to race it.

Basher Hits The Road With The M.Rage

Basher’s heading into new territory with the M.Rage, the brand’s first on-road effort. Surprisingly, the car isn’t standard sedan-size, as in 190mm wide with a 255(ish)mm wheelbase. Instead, the M.Rage is scaled like Tamiya’s “M-chassis” cars, with a 210mm wheelbase at 165mm wide. Actual scale size depends what body is on the car. It’s technically […]
