    For those of you who have no seen this thread: http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/showthread.php?t=67972 I have gone ahead and started a new Bruiser petition. After we get as many signatures as possible, it will be sent off to Tamiya with the help of RCP Crawlers (http://www.rcpcrawlers.com/). It seems that times have changed and with all the new re releases that Tamiya is doing it seems like its a possibility. It has been 6 years since the last petition was done and with the significant increase in the popularity of radio control rock crawling and scale based vehicles, it may be possible that Tamiya can and will do this for us. After all, they did give us the High lift :tmb

    The petition isn't anything crazy, its simple and straight forward. I ask that if you are into these vintage 3 speed trucks, such as the Bruiser, Mountaineer, Hilux and Blazing Blazer, that you take a second and sign your name to it. Please only sign it once, also please use correct grammar and punctuation. Remember this is going to Tamiya, if we want to be taken seriously we need to be professional about it.

    Here is the link:

    Thanks

    What's a bruiser? :wnk

    I signed it, and will sticky this for you Mike. Technically, I want a Blazing Blazer, or a Hilux more so, they had the better frame and working hubs. All I'd change is thicker material in a couple places, (ie: steering knuckles) and 3mm screws on the wheel to hub mounting.

    207 signatures guys :tmb

    There is a lot of up roar about this on a lot of different forums, even Joe Anderson has stepped in with his 2 cents...

    Keep the signatures rolling, Tamiya will hear us, one way or another. Rock crawling and scale rigs are going to be a HUGE part of RC in the future and its only going to get larger

    Thanks for the continuous support guys

    I will sign it, even though Tamiya USA takes orders from Tamiya Japan, so what sells in Japan will get sold here, not what is wanted here will be sold here.

    Thats where this is going, Tamiya Japan :tmb With the help of RCP Crawlers, it WILL get into the right hands. While we may not get a re release Bruiser, its important for them to see the popularity of scale / rock crawling and who knows, maybe we will get a Toyota bodied rig out of it :D

    wouldn't this depreciate the value of the original bruisers?

    I would say so but look at the Lunchbox re-release. Most sellers are still selling the originals at sky high prices and the only difference is people aren't buying em and are buying the re-release instead. LOL

    That really wouldnt bother me, I have just about 8 Bruisers and 1000s into mine... I dont have them because they are worth a lot of money. I have them because they are an awesome scale model. I am sure some would be upset as they have spent a lot to obtain one or restore one, but i think an original would still be valued more anyways.

    3 speed

    I've seen some of these trucks you're talking about, truly sweet rigs. Doesn't anyone make a 3 speed tranny like in the trucks you're talking about? I think it would be hugely popular, since you could use 1st gear for crawling, then shift up for a little more speed for general trail running and bashing. I'd buy one in a heartbeat, it'd make your favorite truck more versatile. Plus, shifting gears would be awesome! Are you manufacturers listening?

    I dont think tamiya will ever re-release the bruiser, theres just no money in it. With all those metal parts in the kit it would be cost prohibitive to reproduce it, think about how all those metal parts are made, ever notice how the only ones they re-released are mostly plastic? Thats cause plastic is cheap and easy to produce and thats all your gonna see re-released. It will never happen, and if it did my nib mountaineer and bruiser would be almost worthless and my $5000.00 investment would be a disaster, any collector would become nuaseous at the idea, it would destroy the collectibility of all those originals. Besides they did re-release it, it's called the f-350 highlift.

    As a collector, I am disgusted with the thought of a bruiser release. I have thousands invested in my 3 speeds and a re release would make them worthless. Is nothing sacred anymore. If they do re release one, I hope they charge an arm and a leg for it.

    no worries

    Hey, its nice to know that you found the best bruiser forum on the web!
    I think that your investments are safe as the materials & methods of manufacturing the bruiser and mounty are considered too expensive and unprofitable. Its a shame that the industry has gone all plastic.

    hey it could be worse if you have recently purchased a chrysler vehicle.....lol
