The thing was a tank with the diecast metal gear case. I thought it was cool how the rear end had only one shock. You still got yours?

Thumbs up A Tamiya.....

Lamborghini 1/12th circuit car. Can't remember its exact name but it was the one that took a 5 cell pack and had the black and grey tread on the front wheels.

First off-road was a Tamiya Subaru Brat, which Tamiya are re-releasing.

BUT!!!! the one I wish I had really really kept (because I'm getting back into off-road) is the PB Two Speed Mini Mustang. Still haven't seen a RC that could take of like that thing, and the current off-road rules in NZ no long make it illegal.

I had a Kyosho Assualt.

It gave my father and I hearburn for a long time before we got it running reliably.

It was a beast when it was running though, and drew crowds in the neiborhood when we ran it.
