You guys suck. I had an RC Car my folks got me for Christmas back in like 1987. Now I want something to F around with in the backyard
I had one sometime in high school. Little nitro car that went maybe about 60 mph. Seems like something little broke on it every time and I always had a hell of a time getting it started. It was fun as hell when it worked though. I'd build little ramps and it was amazing how well that thing would fly threw the air. I don't think I ever even crashed it, it always landed so well on all 4 wheels.
Do it! There are tons of cheap RTR vehicles on banggood and other sites now. Everything is all 2.4ghz too, so no more messing around with 27 mhz AM/FM transmitters and crystals and stuff.
I have a 1/18th scale crawler ordered to crawl around indoors, a 1/10th scale crawler I use on our walks, a 1/10th scale touring car I'm rebuilding, and a 1/10th scale stadium truck I am hunting for parts to see if I can get running again.
What kind of crawler. I’ve got an SCX-10 Deadbolt RTRbfrom like 5yrs ago. Way more fun then a cracked out buggy imho.
Nice! Another “RC” dude in da house. I used to race 1/10 off road a lot back in the early 90’s then got back into it in 2010 and raced a few more years. Now I just drive for fun. This was delivered to me on Friday....I was into buggies back in the day, then when I was restricted under Art.15, a friend went and bought/delivered me a AWD touring car. In Japan I built it as my drifter, that was fun a while.
Then I got this thing...

It’s got a bunch of mods and it keeps me from spending all my money building a real truggy.
Do Tyco R/C cars count?
That's what I had, geez, like 30 years ago now
So back to working from home. It's the same freaking guy that forgets to close shared documents every time, then doesn't answer PM's.
