my dads friend brought over these 2 cars yesterday because he knew i used to be into this stuff. he wants to to see if i can sell them just to get rid of them but i have no idea what they are. another guy brought over a big truck yesterday to give to me also and i have found out that its a Clod Buster and after looking on ebay i see that those can go for over $100! im thinking that i might keep the clod buster to have fun with around the house, ill just need to replace the electronics since the radio isnt turning on with fresh batteries and it has a manual speed control.
The Yellow buggy is a difficult one. It has the oil filled dampers in the rear that the Hornet came with...however it has rear grasshopper tires mounted to the front...or Subaru Brat fronts. So it could be a hornet or a hopped up grasshopper. Lastly, and I am just throwing this out there as a long-shot, the blue nerf barfs make me want to says it's the rare World Engines Rockbuster...a grasshopper/hornet copy. Of course you'd also have to throw out the Academy Road Runner as a potential as well.
thanks for all of the info. i thought those nerf bars were painted plastic before but you're right, they are aluminum.
i wonder what these may be worth, the hornet looks like the front of the chassis has been reglued or epoxied back together and the body mounts are also both glued back on and its missing the battery cover for the bottom. besides that it seems to be in good shape.
the prerunner is in great shape, the body isnt too bad either. the only thing i see wrong with the truck is that the plastic piece above the motor is cracked and re glued. its got a front sway bar and steel dog bones in the rear
both cars have esc's and am radios and all servos. they are pretty much ready to drive except the radios aren't working for me.
