Reliving my youth!
I bought this Hotshot some 25 years after having an original one. I spent ages deciding whether to buy a modern model or whether to go for this reissue of the Hotshot which I used to race when I was a kid and I am glad I went back to this. The model has been updated brilliantly without losing the character of the original. The parts which were weak on the original, particularly the driveshafts have been changed to stronger one picece items. With the original we spent a fortune (or my dad did!) to make it suitable for racing, but if this model was still competitive today it would be almost ready to race from the box. It is good to see that an ESC is included, yet the old heat sinks have been retained for appearance. The only upgrade I have made is a full bearing set, purchased for £7 from eBay, about £18 cheaper than they were in 1985! I haven't built the kit fully yet but I look forward to taking it for a spin. Wonderland models were the best price I could find on the net and dealt with my order promptly and efficiently, packing the box nicely to prevent damage, and I would definitely use them again.

Extremely pleased with my Hotshot 2007. I remember always wanting the original. They are still so much fun to build all these years later. The service from Wonderland Models was brilliant, item was well packaged and arrived quickly with a 1 hour delivery slot. I'll definitely be back.

Hotshot from Topshop !
I will always continue to use Wonderland as my supplier of choice. Excellent communication and customer service, you can be online but it feels like you are in the shop. Packages are well wrapped, if you are like me, this is important, I need the model box as pristine as when it came out of the factory. Tamiya re-releases are fab – just wish Kyosho would re-release the Optima and I could really relive my youth.
