Nice thread! The Jet Fighter was my first RC car around 1989. I remember racing against my dads Tamiya Thunder Shot. He always won with his 4x4 buggy...

back in 1990 a kid with a Nikko Dictator raced against my optima mid and lost. We laughed. But you cant argue that they were the coolest and most popular and great looking toy grade rc cars.

Default Taiyo Max Hopper 4WD / Tyco Super Turbo Hopper 4WD vs Taiyo Grabber 4WD

Totally agree, they may not be the fastest but the quality and design from the late 80s and early 90s was the golden age of toy grade rc's. Everything toy-grade produced today is cheap and ugly, no creativity or passion. Its a great shame Taiyo do not exist anymore and Nikko has also gone down the cheap path and no longer produce the quality RCs from 80s and 90s.

Check out my,
