On one of the biggest stands at the fair, Tamiya and Carson, had their latest and greatest products on show. On the Tamiya side of the booth, the Japanese company was focussing on its DB01 off road chassis, which is the basis for the Durga buggy, while also very much in focus was the Limited Edition DT-02MS 2wd buggy. Given a very large section of their own was the TamTech range of mini retro 2wd buggies, but the highlight of the stand was the display of a full size Porsche 911GT3 racing car. This was present due to the release of a RC replica of the car, based on the RTR TT-01 Type E 4wd chassis and which comes with built in lights for that realistic effect.
