My first RC car was a schumacher top cat back in 1994, with the cougar front end, used to race in stock class with good old johnson silver can, and used to run 1800mAh battery packs....

Checked out the first and last page of this thread, and these guys had the same cars I did.

Tyco Turbo Hopper is my first rc. Fires "real" rc were Tamiya Monster Beetle and Boomerang shared between my brother and I. Our neighborhood used to hold races in the crappy track we built in my parent's backyard. They had a grasshopper, fox, wild willie, and lunch box the good ole days.

My first nitro was a Kyosho Rampage.

Got out of the hobby for about 20 years, and now I am back in it, and my wife thinks I'm a little insane

first rc was an associated nitro tc3 back in 2003. i had pictures on my myspace but myspace recently turned into a music site so those pics are gone.

edit: i should say, the ntc3 was my first hobby grade rc. i had some radio shack and walmart cars growing up but i usually broke all those then threw them out because you couldnt replace parts.

The Panda for the win.

My first car was an Aristocraft Hitec Kangaroo...



Followed by an Academy Rockbuster, which is essentially a Tamiya Grasshopper. The second pic is the actual car with the lexan Grasshopper body fitted.





Then we purchased a Tamiya Falcon which was the car we really started racing with. We stole the electronic speed control out of the Kangaroo as you can see...
