Drag Racing Champion
I still have my old Frog, Monster Beetle, and Top Cat from back in the day. I've been meaning to get them going again...
Do it! There are tons of cheap RTR vehicles on banggood and other sites now. Everything is all 2.4ghz too, so no more messing around with 27 mhz AM/FM transmitters and crystals and stuff.You guys suck. I had an RC Car my folks got me for Christmas back in like 1987. Now I want something to F around with in the backyard
Nitro is cool and all, sounds, smells, rips... But the electric is crazy now especially just for F'n around. There's almost too much torque, but you can hook up to it and program the speed controller how you want it among other things. And with the lithium batteries the run time is wayyyy longer. I had a guy tell me that nitro 1/8th was like the F1 of RC.I had one sometime in high school. Little nitro car that went maybe about 60 mph. Seems like something little broke on it every time and I always had a hell of a time getting it started. It was fun as hell when it worked though. I'd build little ramps and it was amazing how well that thing would fly threw the air. I don't think I ever even crashed it, it always landed so well on all 4 wheels.

I have a 1/18th scale crawler ordered to crawl around indoors, a 1/10th scale crawler I use on our walks, a 1/10th scale touring car I'm rebuilding, and a 1/10th scale stadium truck I am hunting for parts to see if I can get running again.
Nice! I kind of wish I just got an RTR SCX-10. I ended up spending way more money building a kit.What kind of crawler. I’ve got an SCX-10 Deadbolt RTRbfrom like 5yrs ago. Way more fun then a cracked out buggy imho.
Nice! Another “RC” dude in da house. I used to race 1/10 off road a lot back in the early 90’s then got back into it in 2010 and raced a few more years. Now I just drive for fun. This was delivered to me on Friday....I was into buggies back in the day, then when I was restricted under Art.15, a friend went and bought/delivered me a AWD touring car. In Japan I built it as my drifter, that was fun a while.
Then I got this thing...

It’s got a bunch of mods and it keeps me from spending all my money building a real truggy.
Do Tyco R/C cars count?
That's what I had, geez, like 30 years ago now
Gotta love it. I used to have a couple things like that, or something with a limited number of logins. Then you're trying to figure out which genius didn't log out/close doc.So back to working from home. It's the same freaking guy that forgets to close shared documents every time, then doesn't answer PM's.
