Exclamation Need help from someone who knows their stuff

Hey all,

I was clearing out my cupboards and found an old RC my dad bought for me about 16 years ago.

Its a yellow Nikko F10 Framebuggy Thunderbolt?
Pristine condition, never been used.

Ive looked on the net and can find very little info on this model, many people that I show it to don't recognize it at all.

I would really like to know more about the origin of this model AND how much its worth if I were to sell it to an enthusiast and give it a good home.

All comments are much appreciated

It is simple math to be frank...

Nikko = Junk

It originates in China, and probably isn't worth much. Sorry buddy.

ah, my first 1/10th r/c. every time i crashed, some surface mount board inside would break off. i had my neighbor fixing that thing every week ... that was probably 18 years ago ... then my poor mom had to spend $300+ on a traxxas cat package. (too bad there weren't internet shops back then! ).

hahaha, thats why mine is still in pristine condition, my dad got it for me but then wouldnt let me use it cause he was afraid i would run it into a wall and destroy it being only 5 years old. I think it was $400NZD when we got it

There is a Nikko forum in the "Other Makes" section of the Tamiyaclub.com forums...

http://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?showforum=23

Get yourself an account and post some pictures. Your pretty much guaranteed that someone there will know what it is, or at least enjoy seeing it. Registering there can be a pain, but at least you can enjoy vintage r/c with a bunch of other crazies...

Sorry for the bump, but my dad just shipped me his old Nikko Thunderbolt F10 and I cleaned it all up and need a few parts... I'm looking for a new set of wheels (they're pretty well worn down) and a new spoiler on the back...

Anyone know where to find these parts?

Karlos, do you still have this car, or did you find more information?

Thanks a bunch!
