WT, you want the perfect tank that has no issues, well there is your problem.

EVERY TANK HAS ISSUES, THERE IS NO PERTECT RUNNING TANK!!!!

I big part of this hobby is the tinker wIth the tanks, so just get what you want because your going to eventually end up fixing it or upgrade some part any way.

What ever you choose, as long as you take your time and make it your own, you'll end up loving it.

My Panzer 3 was my first tank, six years ago and it still one of my favourites.
Im still not done tinkering with it.

My Tamiya Tiger 1 build went really smoothly. I added idler support and an engine strut brace, but they are not needed.

And running it into a bridge, smashing it through a barn, and that crazy Can-Am river has proved it to be pretty durable.

Running into bridges is still 10x better than running OFF the bridges...

Don't see many catastrophic failures really. Generally every so often a track link breaks or a pin comes out, sometimes an idler mount breaks off but not very often.

Ive seen a couple stripped out gearboxes around the club, a broken recoil servo, stripped turret rotation gears & bad batteries. Mind you, thats across 20-30 different tanks, things don't break TOO often, and if they do it's often driver error Wink

All Tamiya kits will run well out of the box. Battling puts extra strain on the tank, and it might need a little something extra to make it more durable.

If you eventually want to battle it you'll need to pick up a battle unit. The Tamiya unit is $100. And you'll have to remeber that it takes more shots to kill a KT, vs a Panzer.
