Back in 98-99, my first rc was a traxxas nitro 4tec on road car. Ran it a few times and since then, I sold it, bought an ecx ruckus, stampede 2wd, ecx circuit, tamiya tb03. Gave away the pede and circuit to family members, traded the ruckus for a motor, and kept the tb03. Just ordered a thunder tiger mt4 g3 and will be receiving it this coming Monday.

Smile first one haha

My first was a Tamiya Hotshot, with a Futaba Magnum Jr radio and servo kit, 7cell Nicad, in 86' that I raced and won everytime!! I also Had a frog that I converted into a bigfoot truck.. Then I was putting together a RC10 frankenstein of those days.. (loved those days)

Then in the late 90's I had an HPI Nitro something or another, (hated it)..

Now I have, well, you can see in my sig, except I just bought another SC10 roller today lol!!

My 1st RC was a Firefox (I had the red version) it took a gazillion AA batteries

But the 1st kit I ever built with dad was a tamiya falcon. We stayed up all night and had it running by the next day 9am. With an airtronics XL2P pistol grip radio.

I had a Tamiya car I bought used which was my first proper RC even though it was a pre-built car. My first kit was a Factory Team TC3 touring car.
