Broke the DB01 already :(

My fault really, tried to clear a large tabletop in my final that I knew I couldn’t. Landed awkwardly, flipped on the roof, cracked the rear tower off at the wing mounts.

Rather worryingly this is the exact same breakage I have seen posted on another DB01 on the net. Hoping it doesn’t happen again.

To be fair to the car I had already crashed it heavily many times during the day without anything else breaking.

Tamiya DB01 Durga

Been a while since I last posted anything!

Just picked up the new Tamiya DB01 Durga buggy from the local Tamiya specialist Cleveland Models. Essentially a TRF501X but with a plastic chassis and downgraded components. Reminds me a lot of the TA05.

Here are a couple of pics before it gets wrecked at tomorrows NE regional at Teesside!
