A track rig 1/8 buggy for sure.
Pills all around etc. Maybe a one-off??? IDK.
Nice though. Reminds me of a Durango buggy. Maybe even better.
This confuses me.:unsure:

I'm gonna go out on a limb and call this photoshopped, I could be wrong but highly doubt it or someone could of also redid the anodizing and restickered the parts, wouldn't be to hard to do in the right hands.

Toemen is one of the biggest if not the biggest reseller in Europe. Normally they always receive the first batches. They are legit!
I had never heard of them in all of the years I have been in this hobby so I had no idea if they were legit or not.

But I also noticed this in the listing Dit artikel zal in voorraad zijn op 17 september 2021 or This item will be in stock on September 17, 2021.

TLR and Arrma being owned by HH may have something to do with this. May be a leaked designer stage prototype? I am sure it is tight lipped if true.
Well with the Typhon 6s being the only Arrma I want right now, this woud fit the bill perfectly for me. Hope it is a real kit.

Mr. Toemen started a hobby shop back in 1980, his son took over a few years ago, very decent guys, you should come to the Netherlands!
Also F1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix this weekend (y)

This looks very legit but i don't get the pont (again). Losi is for racing and Arrma for bashing 🤷‍♂️

Toemen in EU had so much Kraton EXB for selling and was the first in EU to have them. They even had so much that they started to sell parts took appart from brand new kits as brokers do. I did order directly from horizon hobby EU and the kraton EXB wasn't in stock there when toemen had tons of them already.

Anyway, this TLR look like the "old" Team Durango DEX8 with this anodised color.

Google trad is your friend 😆, i can't understand anything on toemen without the help of google trad.

Well you have google :ROFLMAO: so you'll get there

Probably something I would have to plan a few years ahead for sure though.

Yeah it does look a lot like the old DEX8.

I said that also as one possibility. Look closely at a TLR track buggy and this one. There are some similarities and mostly not any. Its all Arrma. Thats why I thought it was a Durango variant all dressed up and logo'ed TLR Tuned. The TLR Font should be focused on.
Then again it just may be legit??? A collaboration of TLR and Arrma (HH owned). A race Kit buggy? I cant see why HH would create competition among its owned brands though. Two very popuar brands that appeal to 2 differnt types of hobbyists. But it wouldn't be the first time a company has done this. TLR does make quality Race stuff. Not talking about any of their other mainstream RTR's for the average basher guy. There are many RC'ers that only buy RC rigs in boxed kit form. ( Not talking about Rollers)

This just might end up being Arrma's very first Track competitive "Kit". And the 6s Typhon platform would be the best platform for it. 1/8 Buggy racing is the most popular Globally IMHO. And the supposed "TLR Tuned parts" will most probably be sourced from Taiwan like most of TLR stuff.(y)
It will probably be made at the TLR facility. TLR has facilities for boxing kits. Way differnt than RTR built up production. It costs more to make RC kits than RTR's. JD stated this. More labor intensive to bag and coordinate Manuals to parts bags etc.. Quite the opposite of what many think.

Look at the chassis view pic then look at the servo mount, definitely looks chopped.

I am using my v1 Noto/chassis here as a reference.
This appears custom modded.
