Off-roading with some radio controlled cars

Post by Mark

Today I went off-roading with some friends. First in our real cars and then in our radio controlled ones. We had three Tamiya FJ Cruisers, my Tamiya Lunchbox and my Tamiya Frog. It was extremely fun, I bashed the hell out of my Lunchbox and it now needs a major paint job but I don’t care. I took a ton of pictures and so did my brother but I couldn’t put all of them here. There are a few more pictures below though if you hit continue.

Update: My brother just uploaded some photos to his flickr account [Here]

    Thats funny your using your car battery to charge the RC batteries! I remember having 3-4 of them and quick charger, so I can keep playing until I broke an axle or a gear! I always kept spare parts with me! lol

  9. SWOS says:

    the FJ (CR-01) is 95KD from Tamiya in Q8 (Tilal Complex), but u need to get at least the 25KD Tamiya remote, a battery & a charger .

  11. Teeman says:

    The lunchbox looks so badass! in 2&4

  12. Mark says:

    I dont know where this area is located but its 15 minutes past mina abdulla.

    Gapi: from my experience the dealer has spare parts for new cars and trucks but not for reissues like my lunchbox and frog. You need to pass by their muthana branch though since i dont know if their tilal branch carry any parts.

  13. roxas says:

  14. Shoegal says:

  15. Bu Yousef says:

    Great photos… What a day you’ve chosen for this… The weather was perfect.

    I can’t see the attraction if you’re not actually IN the car…………….

    The CR-01 is a great crawler.
    The Hip Up option on the fj, availble at the dealer here in kuwait was not needed. i was there and the RTR(Ready To Run) fj was nice and nimble and comes with everything needed to run it and some spares too,
    RTR FJ =170
    FJ Kit = 95
    all spares & options available in tilal
