My first car was a frog. I think I was maybe 7 or 8. It had the charger that took something like 3 hours to charge just to get 15 mins of runtime, it that. My dad bought it for me and got it assembled by the hobby store. The next year my dad bought my brother a Fox for Christmas. My brother (who is 2 years older than me) was all excited about putting it together with my dad's help. He woke up on Boxing day only to find out that our dad had stayed up all night and put the thing together. Apparently he thought he'd just take a quick look in the box and see how it went. Several hours later it happened to assemble itself.

Fast forward to Christmas 2005 and my dad was visiting my brother and his wife for christmas. My brother's wife just happened to buy my brother a Tamiya TB-02 a christmas gift. According to my dad, my brother slept with the unopened box under the blankets of his bed so my dad wouldn't decide to take a quick look inside the box again.

my first car was a nitro car NTC3 when it was still the hottest new released one( at least for the newbie) had fun .i think i just broke a shocktower and a rearhub.. it was pretty nice.. i just learn how to run and setup basically by myself until i met couple of pros..

then the list will go on but the this thread is only for "first rc car." so i will stop now. before the list will go on.

first car: 1984 Marui Hunter in all its gear stripping wonder!

from there the list is to long, Rc Anonymos would be a good idea. the list would be 50 plus and i would have to think for an hour or two to remember all of them.
