Worlds Ugliest RC car?
 
Heres my Vintage Royal Ripper that I've been restoring for a while now. While I've put a good amount of time searching for parts to make up what I have now, I still think its one ugly RC! It is fun to drive though since it 4wd and 4ws.

Throw some pics up of your ugly RCs!

It was an attempt by Royal at a Hotshot clone, but they changed it a bit with 4ws. The biggest problem was the plastic they used. It was horribly fragile and just not the best design.

I remember when this first came out . I was running a Kyosho Pegasus. lol. Then I got an Rc10 and my buddy picked up a marui ninja.

Any SCT is uglier than that, especially the Associated. The Associated RC8 series are pretty awful looking too except when they run 75% Kyosho parts then the Assosho/Kyociated looks pretty good.

;) :p ;) :p

Cab forward bodies, though I do find the B4 Finnisher tolerable/less ugly than the others.

You must be talking about the first real race buggy Traxxas made. The TRX1.

Does anybody remember the Spirit FF? It looked kinda like the Royal, it was front wheel drive and as fragile as an egg.
