I remember when the OLD school futaba radio was a brown box with wheel in middle of the box and the throttle was on the upper right side. I used to run the old AE RC100 before suspension and all was out. The PB mustang was a monster of a 4wd 1/8 off road buggy wish i had one of those.

i can remember when "RTR" was when you bought a KIT, radio, charger, battery, and motor all at once, but then still had to build the kit....

i remember when it was cool to race an R/C with white plastics...

i remember when Traxxas sold nothing but kits...

i remember when LRP wasn't associated with Associated...

i remember when the most important thing in your pit box was a pencil eraser...

i remember when you bought a new radio, you acctually used the servos it came with....

i remember when the best wheels you could own for racing, were 3 peice...

i remember when you had to pay $80 for a brushed motor...

i remember when a 3000mah pack could easily cost more than $100...

Remember when truggies were a conversion. A buggy with bigger wheels and a truck body?

Remember when you'd go to the track, you were the guy with all the frequencies and you handed out your crystals so everyone could race in the "monster truck"class(before spektrum)? Oh wait, that was me. Hahahah

My first car was the Futaba FX10 which was really a relabeled Tamiya Striker.
It had a mechanical speed control and nice nonadjustable shocks.

My first real car was a RC10 graphite with the new Stealth tranny, Teflon coated shocks, and slipper clutch. I had a pocket rocket motor in that thing.

Remember:
The Pirate M1 http://rcmagvintage.com/modules.php?...asc&highlight=

When your peak charger was the size of a lunch box.

When two stick radios were cool.

Slipper clutches entered the market, my favorite was the Losi hydradrive. LOL

When universal drive shaft became standard features.

When MIP made a 4X4 belt conversion for the RC10.

Anyone remember the husband and wife team that Traxxas sponsored to run the "Blue Eagle" electric truck and buggy at bigger races? I started racing in 1991 and it was awesome racing. Tires would last forever because we ran on dirt that you had to water between rounds....oh the good old days.

I can remember when rc racing was all about fun and having a good time. No crying about hacking or getting bent out of shape because you were taken out. I remember when everybody use to club race and have a good time at the local track and there were no big races. Those were good times.

Lol, track working tools were a hose and a rake instead of a blower and sugar water!

In response to hustler's post, I remember spending $125 a piece on Trinity 1700 Worlds matched packs (that required assembly) and being bummed I couldn't afford to get the brand new 2000 cells.
