I like it how every bump bounces their cars all over the place. Looks like those cars were extremely difficult to control.

the cars were not brilliant over the bumps back then, add in also the fact that lasting 5 minutes was an issue and steering servos were dog slow...

those guys did an amazing job!

Yeah, I don't think they had oil filled shocks back then.

It is really cool to look at though.

Yeah, they had oil shocks. They also only raced for 4 minutes back then. 5 minute races didn't show up on the scene until 2000mah batteries landed. (except for 1/12th scale, of course..)

That's not entirely true. IFMAR ran 5 minutes around '89 or '90, and that was well before 2000 Ma cells. The best than were the 1700's.

True that. IFMAR ran 5 well before ROAR adopted it, then it took a lot of the local clubs a lot longer to pick it up. Also the 1700s were crappy for off road, no punch. The oval guys liked them though. Sanyo P1700s, ugggh.

First time we heard the name Masami Hirosaka and lots to to come.
I remember Joel Johnson was driving a Kyosho Ultima with trinity motor and Masami was driving a Schumacher Cat XLS. Cliff Lett was racing self in those days after he left R&D Yamaha. Also "Jamming" Jay Halsey was running a RC10.
I remember the esc's we were running in those days: 50hz with the weight of an avarage motor today!
First attempt of the Kyosho Optima Mid at the worlds. Mike Reedy was THE motorman, other names were Trinity, AYK (do they still excist?), Kyosho (most popular in 4wd A finale), Schumacher, Yokomo (chaindriven 4wd car) and the RC10 was the most popular car in 2WD.
Motors were revving 30-32000 rpm at top those for 16turns with red 1200scr's cells.
Time has flying by if you see the modern cars in both on & offroad racing. I have still a Sanwa 3channel transmitter left for backup and it is more than 15yrs old and still working great!
