Even if I got just $100.00 for each car, I would have a total of $11,900.00

I keep track of "inventory" for all my car toys(r/c, die-casts, plastic models etc etc...); not a good idea by the way! Better off just throwing the receipts.... hehehe... Please don't tell the wife, but I just totalled it today and it's at $47,000(+-). YIKES! That's a 5-series right there... but nooo, I drive a Corolla... bummer (not bimmer)

OK, a customer called me the enabler today. I guess he thinks I am a drug dealer for RC addicts....

Like you, I don't only have RC cars, I have to also include the 100's of plastic models I have.
Mostly Tamiya again. They alone would be a few grand. Some are not cheap either, like the 1/12 scale caterham, etc.....

To tell you the truth, I have never owned a real Tamiya R/C Car
Yeah they count heck the first Tamiya brand thing I had was a bottle of the Tamiya Laquer for plastic models

What I ment is that at one point in RC if you have anything to do with RC even like Slot cars you probably have bought a Tamiya product
