I had a Micro RS4 back in the day....... and it was a lot of fun. Then XRay came out with the M18. It handles so much better, I sold all my HPI Micro RS4 stuff since then. To this day we still race the M18 at our local track and even at a National's level. The Micro RS4 was really cool back in the day though, especially when Exotek and other aftermarket stuff came out with all kinds of cool hop-ups.

The Tamiya F201. I had more fun with that car/class than another other. After coming back to RC, I was saddened to find out it had been discontinued.

This one is a toy, but was fun...

Tyco Fast Traxx, 9.6v Turbo. I killed the rear gears twice in it, and the battery door was terrible for breaking. But it was fast and pretty much climbed everything. I still have it, but the Trax have gone practically bald, and the battery door is broken. I still get it out and play with it while I wait for the Pede to cool off.

These things were pretty incredible for the price and how old they are. I still miss mine. Flaws and all they were a beast over almost anything you could throw at them.

Yokomo Petit Maru

Its was a 1/60th vehicle with full digital proportional system and suspension. Much better than zipzaps.




Updated with 2.4 system and lipo.

The RC18T....the t2/b2 model are a joke compared to the 18t/18b. The belt system leaves nothing to be desired compared to the shaft drive on the earlier models. I know you can still get the original If you buy the RC18MT, I just can't get over that crappy belt design of the t2/b2.
