Default The really small stuff - Bit Char-G, and family.

I'm looking for something to drive around my kitchen, and computer room floor. A few years back, I was deep into Bit Char-G. I was hoping those were still out there, but it looks like Tomy got out of the market.

Is there still a Bit Char-G community? How about clones or related hardware?

If there isn't... Well crud.

I'm looking at the Bit Char-G chassis on my desk here, thinking about making it into a proportional car.

Yeah, but it's all old stock. Nothing new any more.

Where else is a micro rc car guy going to get his fix?

It is, but it's also a lot larger.

I decided to do something about my desire for a tiny proportional car. Tonight.

To cut to the chase, I now have a fully proportional Bit Char-G chassis. It's in need of a lot of cleanup, but .. it's real, and it works.

Default x-trek pro

You need the X-Trek Pro made by Silverlit 8-9 years ago. It's about the size of a hot wheels but digital proportionate.

Oh, now that's nice. I'm using a 1.9g servo on my Bit Char-G that I converted to proportional.
