Tyco Turbo hopper.

Hobby grade: Tamiya Lunchbox. Bought another re-re when they came out.

Race: RC10T, still have it. LOVE that truck. Mine is the latest version that has the black T2 arms.

A Tamiya Avante Quick Drive.

Then an RC10 with bushings and a mechanical resistor type speed controller. From toy grade to hobby grade was such a big jump!

Kyosho Rocky. Stock motor, metal bushings (that was considered an upgrade from plastic bushings), and a 3-speed mechanical speed controller. Worked 6 months after school to save up all the pennies for it.

Kyosho Turbo Altima II, right around 1990. A friend couldn't get it working after he built it so he gave it to me.
