Tamiya Hornet. This is a picture of the first one I built in the 80s

I then turned it into a Midnight Pumpkin

On-road = Associated RC-12i
Off-road= Cox/Kyosho Turbo Scorpion (followed closely by an RC-10)

In mind and body, we're all heading towards old age. It is slower to go by bike.

My first ones had wires from the remote to the vehicle. Then I had countless Tyco, Bandai, and no-name Walmart/Toys r us type cars. My first "real" RC was a Losi JrxT in about '90/'91. I still have it. I raced Losi stadium trucks for many years to come after that and have just about all of them still.
