Supershot....Broke so much my dad refused to fix it anymore later got a traxxas rustler then rc10 gt and a rc10 b3 that i raced at hotrod hobbies in cali. After 10 years I moved to Idaho and got an associated mgt. Now at age 40 I still have the b3, mgt, a FT sc10 that I converted into a sc10b, a b4.2 and I just ordered a refurbished sc10gt for shits a giggles.( wife's gonna kill me for that one). Any way....I don't see me slowing down cuz I would love to own a 1/8 scale buggy!

The original tamiya Blackfoot. I got it in the mid 80's....
Oldest one I still got is a traxxas sledgehammer, rc10 and a jrx pro. Sold a jrxt on eBay a while ago. Dad has about 6 original clod busters still. Modded variously....

First was the Tamiya Blackfoot then Clodbuster. I then moved on to the gold pan rc10 then the b2. Waited 15 years then just two months ago got a b44....got tired of that car and now hitting the SC bandwagon hard with a SC10FT an SC10 4x4.

Dang this stuff is fun!

I remember when my parents bought me the Stealth tranny... don't know if I was ever so excited for a gift!

Futaba FX10 AKA the Tamiya Striker.
Nice plastic dog bones in trailing arm suspension. The bones shot out so much I painted them bight orange so I could find them Front a arms punched holes in the front chassis even with that big bumper. And my favorite the mechanical speed control you wrapped in a balloon. Those were the days. As bad as it was I keep hoping Tamiya will re-release it

Tamiya Super Champ. Fiberglass, cast aluminum and (I believe) some brass gears. Would love to get my hands on a NIB kit and build a shelf queen.

Tamiya Frog mid 80's..

then I got a Tamiya Bigwig.. Loved that car.

Got me hooked on 4wd.

Then I stepped up to the Original Shumacher Cat. LOved that even more. Still my favorite of all time.
