    but by the looks of it force labo and dribar are pretty much the same concept, do you have a preference between the two?

    Take a car to Enomoto, he loves seeing racers cars from around the world.

    I have not been to Dribar but I know people who have and have seen pictures. It looks like many of the local mini4wd shops in Japan. They work with what they have to create as space to tune and race. I wish I could have visited it. Force Labo is serious business. They will have their version of the 5 lane 2019 Japan Cup track layout up through the end of the the races, then Fall or winter layouts, whatever is the next big Tamiya race. Depending on when you go, there are seriously fast people there.

    Unless you're racing at a higher level, somewhere like Dribar is likely a better spot to go. There is also a place called M428 near Kanda Station in Tokyo that had good praise from some people I know that visited. Most places will have really fast racers who are regulars at them, just depends on the day/time you visit.

    So I had 4 extra hours to spend in Tokyo yesterday, went to Tamiya Plamodel Factory. I definitely recommend it. Good selection of parts and track was a nice relaxing environment with a bunch of kids as well as adults testing a variety of cars of all levels. Be sure to pick out the parts downstairs then take them to the first floor to pay and get your pass for the track on the second floor. I kinda wish I could have stayed a little longer, but had a plane to catch.

    I did not specifically see dump truck bodies, but really was not looking for them. They do have a small section with different bodies. One thing to look for when you go is the 13mm HG black rollers. They are discontinued and are quite good. Kicking myself now that I only picked up two pairs when I could have resold sets when I get home. They should be near the downstairs cash register with all the other new parts.
