Default First sedan? Year?

What was your first touring car and what year was it that you started racing?

Don't lie, repetitive liars never win at the track. I'll start this one off.

1st edition Yok MR4TC

Spring of 98

it's very hard to say, but it was a traxxas bandit, i think in 1999, maybe 2000(memory not that good). It's nice to know i've came from a bandit to graphite plus .

Default First sedan? Year?

My first MODERN R/C Car was an HPI Super Nitro in May of '99. My first race was with an HPI Pro-2 in Oct of '99.

Circa late 1970's:

The very first R/C Car that I ever owned, was an Associated RC-200, 1/8th Gas Pan Car (too hard to drive fast). My very first race was with an Associated RC-12E 12th Electric Pan Car (too slow). Sold them both after a few months and did Airplanes on and off until I bought the Super in '99.

really, if we ever let you come race at road rage or trackside you should race it.

First car I ever drove was a friend's Hornet back in the late 80's. We beat that thing into the ground and super-glued it back together...then we discovered this marvel called zap-kicker. Wow, even more instant fix! I remember one time his mechanical speed controller got stuck open and the car went into a curb. I swear, it disintegrated as the rear pod went through the rest of car! haha.

A couple months later, I got my very first car, the AYK Viper Shuttle. That thing was too much car for me...and if I remember correctly, it was packaged with a mod motor and was way too fast. I think I ran that car for a total of a dozen times and it was done...

Moral of the story, if your starting out...get something you can handle. These RTR Nitro cars with claims of 60+mph is ridiculous for first timers...even though that's what companies seem to target...RTR's shouldn't go that fast...you should build em
