Christmas 1987, A Tamiya Lunchbox. I remember staying up till early morning helping my dad put it together. Then he brought out a Blackfoot to run with me that he bought himself. I ended up with that one too shortly down the road after I destroyed the Lunchbox lol.

first RC was a Losi Jr. T.

dad took me to racing and I eventually upgraded to a losi LXT and then got a Losi XX...

got out of the hobby...then many MANY years later I walked into a hobby shop and bought myself a nitro tmaxx..the addiction returned..

A Sears LoboII... Funny, I had gone w/ my friend and his father who had a Kyosho Icarus and a Tamiya Blackfoot... I tried to keep up w/ them (yeah right) and ended up breaking the front steering knuckle of the car... My mom had sent it back to Sears and I ended up w/ a Lobo 4wd Magnum which was actually the Nikko "Hurricane."

When I was at the track, this little kid who was a great driver and who had the "Born to be Wild" buggy comes up to me and says, "Is that a LoboII?" I said, "Yeah.." He says, "I used to have a super Lobo (faster than the LoboII) and it was a real piece of junk..." LOL.. little punk..
