My first rc car was a Tyco Turbo Hopper. My first real rc car was a Kyosho Icarus, followed by a Tamiya Blackfoot and then finally into a race car with a Losi JRXT.

1989 RC10 Graphite Buggy, Futaba Magnum Jr, Tekin manual speed control, Trinity MonsterTorque, AstroFlight quick charger. Still got it all and it still works perfect. Although the battery only runs strong for about 45 sec. Lol.

Still have the original box and the MSRP was $395 over 23 years ago!
Thanks to my 2013 sponsors!

For me it was the Tamiya Fox in 1985. Then the RC10 in 1986 and the JRX2 in 1988. Various mods done to each of them. Next was a XX in 1995 and then various cars in the past year. Mostly vintage of the same eras.

Tamiya Fox in 1986. If they come out with a re-re I would have no choice but to 'buy it back'!

Same here That was back in the day when my friends and I would play "tag" with our cars. Smash into another car and "TAG you're it!" I have to say I think I had more fun with that car than any since. Probably because I don't play tag anymore
