I like Wes' idea of getting olde skool cars but you run the risk of getting some broken tripe in the post a la:
ONE WINDOW PILLAR IS BENT AS SEEN IN THE PICTURES.
THE STEERING IS WORING GOOD

holy crap, I'm totally gonna get one of those!

Get 2 and bring one home the next time you come back. It's so much cheaper over there than here. I normally go to a store on Orchard. Can't remember the name of the centre, but it is a small centre and not a high profile one. The shop is in the basement level and there is a maccas there too.
If you want to test the waters before spending $$$s, get an AFX set - they're strong and some tracks have loops and climb walls.
Otherwise, Scalextric is the go [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] easily upgraded to digital and high quality
I sell both on my weekend job.

my boy has the tam tech hornet.
pretty slow, but you just charge it and drive it.
I saw on the tamiya site they are making the lambo again. I put one (in the old tattered box) along with all the radio gear, old sanwa I think and a jet hopper in the hard rubbish years ago.
couldn't get any parts for the lambo, needed a hump back battery pack, diplo tires, lots of bits and the hard plastic body had a few good cracks in it. This was late 90's before internet and ebay etc. Wish I still had it.
EDIT looks like they have the old 935 again too, hmm.

If tamiya Australia imports them, we should be able to get them. I know we've got big frogs in stock, don't think we currently have the tadpoles

Hobbyco have em in for $200, so I guess you can do better than that, hahaha.
Also, there's a guy in Sydney who's selling off a bit of Tamiya gear on ebay.com.au
He's got a Ford Hi-Lift F350 for $400 Buy it now. Not bad eh?
Yeah while at home yesterday I searched and found all his stuff too. Some allright cars hey.
The little cars are ok too I think.
I'd like to have the
and the Pajero swb (built on the wild willy chassis) [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
I hope they make most of them again.
I have some old tamiya catalouges from the early through late 80's, they had some great cars out then all with hard bodies.
The mk1 golf was one of the first cars I ever saw, down at the local netball courts.

Tamtech Frog/Hornet is not small enough. I have got the micro version of these cars! It's about 1.5 inch long, and made by Tommy (which I think is owned by Tamiya). I will take a photo tonight. I bought it in Malaysia 4 months ago.
