Default What original RC items/parts do you keep

I still have all the original boxes to my RC cars. I know other people keep things like that too. What items do you keep? Also would you guys recommend holding on to empty gas containers and bottles on the chance that it may become a collectible like the cars and boxes? I have two Im keeping and was wondering are they worth holding on to also?

I keep boxes, manuals, decals & stuff like that. I like the boxes to store stuff in or ship... As for random stuff like bottles I just throw them out. I use to keep broken parts for some reason lol.

Yeah I keep the decals and manuals also that come with the car. But I was keeping 2 gas cans incase they become collecibles years later after the company has changed the design. (Anyone else) I heard that gas containers are more flammable empty than full because of fumes inside. That sounds like a stable fact. That is true but to what extent?

LARGE extent. The fumes are what's highly flamable, not the gas its self if that makes since. If you keep the aired out (IE: No Lid) you should be ok.

can you just wash it out with water and then let it dry out?
Then there are no more fumes or residue.

Same here, but only the really unique ones. I still have a few hingepins that are bent in at least 2 places and I just found a bent shock mounting screw. lol. It's kind of like this: ___/ but at a little bit less of an angle.
