Default First sedan? Year?

Guys;

Just slightly off the main topic but here goes.

How many of you have been around long enough to remember one of the first 1/12th Nitro Cars?
Back in the days, I was working at a Hobby Shop and had the chance to fix up a 12th scale, COX .049 powered Nitro R/C Car.
Don't know if it was actually manufactured by COX (maybe Bolink), but it was very intersting to say the least. Slow, even slower than the Stock Motored 12th Electric Cars of the time. A Pristine example might be worth quite a bit now.

I remember Cox having a 049 powered F1 car is that the car you are talking about? I first saw a R/C car in 71 in an airplane mag it was a home built project about 1/5 scale water cooled nitro powered Stingray I was hooked i wanted to go racing R/C just had to wait for the industry to catch up!!!

My first car was the original slosi XXXS when it was first released spring of 2001. Sinse then I've owned HPI RS4 racer 2, Ofna Hyper 7 Pro, Yok MR4TC Barry Baker edition, CRC carpet knife, RC10GT, RC10T3, NTC3, TC3, and a Barracuda R-1. Now I have a Old Tmaxx, RC12L3, HPI F-1, T1 Evo 2, and a T1R. And very soon I'll be geting a purple Barracuda R2.

Ahhh...a trip down memory lane

My first sedan, Tamiya TA02 with Supra Blitz body. My first race was also my first run with the car. Took 1st place in B-main Novice at the Hobby Masters Summer Challenge in 1995 (Old School So. Cal locals know where Hobby Masters is...one of the biggest parking lot race track back in the days...)

Been hooked ever since...

My first sedan was a Team TC3, purchased about a month after it was released (1999?)

I started racing back in 1987, my first competitive car was an RC10L, purchased in 1989, when it was released.

my first r/c was an HPI Pro 2 that was HPI powered with a tekin rebel esc. i used a futaba pcka with an s9404. probably the funnest car i have owned.

i've owned 3 Kyosho V One R's (1st R when it came out, the RR and a heavily modded RR).

my latest (and probably last) tourer is my Tamiya 414 (not the M). this baby is a keeper for my collection.

First touring car: Original RS4 - Never raced that one

First RC car, Tamiya Frog, mid 80's. I put that through tons of beatings, and it survived them all. I put an old Nova body on it with street tires, but that doesn't make it a touring car.

My first racing was back in 1991 when I raced "Gearbox modified" class with my Losi JR-X2. I did a homemade oval conversion and managed to come in 1st or 2nd nearly every week that summer. Not hard when there were maybe 5 or 6 racers tops in that class. One day we raced Clod Busters WITH some gearbox stocks. It was a free-for-all and I was crushing those little things every time they tried to pass me (if I could catch them). Local racing died after that summer.

I got back into racing back in 1998 with a Tamiya TA03 David Jun edition. Then I raced once or twice in the Tamiya mini class (did a local TCS race).

My cars over time:

Tamiya Frog
Losi JR-X2
Tamiya Clod Buster (man I wish I never got rid of that truck)
Bolink '91 Sport (still have that sitting in a corner)
HPI RS4
Tamiya TA03 David Jun edition
HPI RS4 Mini Pro
Tamiya Mini Cooper (M-03)
Yokomo YR4-M2 USA
HPI Nitro RS4-2
Traxxas Stampede
Associated TC3
Traxxas E-Maxx
Traxxas T-Maxx
HPI Micro RS4 (I have about 4 of them right now)

I'm thinking of racing the Micro RS4 class at a new indoor track nearby.

HeY!!!


Man i still remember my first touring car and building it. My first car was a TC3 in late March of 02' and i got it on a saturday night and built it in one night w/ a freind just so i could go racing next day for first time. I took TQ and 1st in A-main in sportsman and then the next week i moved up to stock. Since then i sold that car and got 2 more TC3's (Factory teams) and one is for foam and one is for rubber. Now i'm mainly racing foam but once in awhile like every 3 weeks i'll race rubber. in about 1 1/2 yrs. i'm racing in expert stock foam.
