Default RC Cars?

I race RC (remote control) cars every Tuesday and Saturday? Does anyone else race or at least have a car?

I've got a couple vehicles.

1) Team Associated Monster GT with a Wasp .28 motor
2) Traxxas E-maxx
3) Team Associated RC18MT Brushless
4) Ofna CRT.5 with a brushless conversion
5) HPI MT2
6) Older Tamiya Blackfoot

I love my RC's. Need to get my E-maxx up and running again and sell a couple of them.

Default Re: RC Cars?

I grew up on R/C cars.

Here they are in Chronological order. I had a bunch of shitty cars I won't mention.

Futaba FX 10
This was my first car. Had to be around 1988-90.
(not my pics)


Next was the Team Associated RC10


After that I got into trucks and picked up a Tamiya Blackfoot


Got tired of 2wd and got a twin motor Tamiya Twin Detonator


Picked up an HPI Micro RS4 AWD. This thing hauled ass, especially if you made it RWD


Then, I wanted to give Nitro trucks a try, so I picked up a Traxxas Revo. Holy shit, what a difference. The Revo kicked ass.


I got a cheap R/C plane for my birthday, took it out and hit a tree the first flight. It needs a wing and sits in my garage.

I have an HPI Savage, and a RedCat Tsunami. I just play with them though, nothing serious. Just addicted to Nitro.

Had a T Maxx, Nitro Rustler, Nitro Rustler 2.5 and a couple HPI s that were junk.Best of the bunch was the 2.5 which I only replaced a glow plug in the year I had it. Best nitro car I ever had! Fun but costly !
