So I am looking at buying my first rc tank I have been in rc for years but not tanks. What I want is a challenger tank or modern tank. My question being is does the henglong challenger use torsion bar suspension?

No sir it does not. It uses a coiled spring located on each road wheel axle.

Thankyou for your help. I am at a loss what to buy the tamiya kit. Is just to much for me to justify. The only kit I can see that ticks the most boxes is the tiagen tiger kit. I just wish there was a t90 or challenger that has B.B. firing sound and is a good quality chassis with a metal tub and tosiob bars

Tom You could buy the Heng Long Tiger 1 ABS Body and BB Turret and a Taigen Metal Hull as they are a straight fit with no modifications needed,
The hull will come with Torsion bar suspension, A plastic Floor and a fully fitted rear panel as well as a body quick release,
The best dealer for this combination is Dave at --- www.forgebeartanks.com
You can buy a Taigen V2 control board and upgraded Speaker and Sound module from Dave at the same time and you will have a very nice Tank for very little money.
The V2 Control board will work with Taigens own Transmitter or an aftermarket Transmitter.
