Sorry it doesn't look as pretty as some of yours. It leads a rough life.

I use to race one of those about 27 years ago.

I've had many since then but here are my latest.

How do you like that LCG chassis? That was one of the best mods for the money... especially if you race the car. It makes that car drive like a completely different car. If you need a new bulk head STRC make a nice aluminum one for around 25 bucks. You won't break that one unless your jumping the thing off buildings.

I got mine around '85 or '86. I use to race it on indoor carpet tracks, as we didn't have a dirt track at the time. I saw the re-release while looking for parts. I spent the last two days tearing it apart, cleaning it, and putting it back together. Looks like about $35 in parts will have it back to a complete stock rolling car. The stock transmission/gearbox needs a rebuild.

I had a Savage 25 back in the day. In January, I picked up the new Savage X 4.6. When I was trying to tune it, I flipped it onto it's back without a shell. It bent everything connected to the motor and shredded the brakes. I replaced it all, but the motor is impossible to get tuned, and I don't know if it's from the damage. I cannot get the idle consistent and it's annoying.

Definitely the good 'ol days. RC10, and the Clodbuster 4wd/4ws.

I love my 3.3 Revo I got a few yrs back.

Man talk about memory lane!

I was really into these things when I was in jr high up until college.

Started out with a Tamiya Blackfoot at age 10
Then a Tamiya Bigwig.
Original RC/10 with the gold tub.
Losi JRX Pro
Kyosho USA-1
RC10/T (this was the one I raced most with)

Right as I left for college I bought a Kyosho Inferno MP6 with a Picco motor. I built the rolling chassis, and never got the damn thing to run. Ended up sitting collecting dust until long after I moved out of my parent's house. When they moved it stayed in their attic. Some new homeowner got a 700 dollar antique 1/8 scale buggy that had never seen dirt.
