Tamiya Terra Crusher. My first nitro experience. I even used it for my science project that year testing different nitro fuels to determine which generated more power.

My first RC was a twin track vehicle like a Kyosho Blizzard but Radio Shack variety. Then I got a Frog- just a re-re model. Then an Ulitima like JammnJeff, JRX-II, TRC Lynx 2 Elite, Corrally 1/12 scale, Lunchbox, Boomerang and a couple others I'm sure I'm forgetting.
Then a 20 year break and have what my signature says now. Fun for sure!

First car was a Nikki Rhino Thunderbolt. First hobby grade was a 1987 Kyosho Raider. Loved that buggy. Just found a brand new one on eBay I'm going to turn in to my shelf display/run for fun on occasion car.

First RC was a new bright buggy. First hobby grade rc was a HPI Wheely King. Man that was a great little backyard basher.

Well for me it was the Blackfoot back in 86 or 87. Don't recall exactly! Still love the trucks to this day. Something about the big oversize tires that just looks good to me!

Got out of the RC for a long time. Got back into it because of an accident this past year and bordom from the healing process and needed something to tinker with and now I have 14 cars and trucks. Yeah I got back into it. Thanks god not married or I think I would be divorced. In any case, I have to thin the herd a bit and some of them may be going up for sale!
