I had few Radio Shack trucks but my first hobby grade RC was this Team Associated RC10T. It is now sitting on the shelf

My fist RC was a white Tiger RC from radioshack, My first Hobby grade was a Traxxas REVO 3.3... Honestly a mistake for a beginner I went through motors like you wouldn't believe. I've been through 4 motors since 07 and this is the first that has lasted more than 1 gallon. Funniest one that got ruend... it didnt make it more than 3 tanks after breakin. Following the traxxas breaking method i was on the 4th tank, near the end of the tank and lost control. The hot running engin and truck went off the road flipped upside down and sank through a thin sheet of ice and completely dissapeared under 1.5' of water, I've never run so fast in my life.

In case anyone is feeling nostalgic, I came across an old Tekin Electronics flyer from 1996 in pretty good shape. It was in one of my old R/C toolboxes. I scanned it into a PDF. Check it out to see the good stuff we had back in the day!

This should take a lot of you way way way back....

Losi Mini 8ight! Got it 12-25-11

Yeah yeah I know but it is my first real RC.

Cool looking at the pictures of the older RC cars. wish I would have gotten into this hobby a long time ago.
