      I have 11 cars in the collection, 2 2wd slash, a rustler, an Smaxx, old skool BFIII and Frog, an MRC Ironman, one RC10T4, a Stampede VXL, a Gelande D90 and another custom built 6x6 crawler.

      essentially, you all know what these look like. Except for the 6x6. Here it is...






      As soon as I am done with some small things on it, I will be putting it up for sale/trade. The wife says I have too many and a few have to go...

      What should I do ? I just can't keep myself away from this thread to see and enjoy the great pictures of RC atuffs. I also say that I watch out for the model which I like to have with myself, just like the great jeep above and the lovely truck. I think I should also get the one now.

      looks cool, good job on the build.

      It went to my friend (who then traded it, he put some of it together, but got it mostly complete). I did not build it.

      I have one here, and just sold two of them.

      Yeah thanks I'm a total novice when it comes to RC but I really enjoyed building the kit and it drives and steers so well. Everybody loves the look. One of the guys on the Aussie forum has a brushless Losi 5T and even he was raving about it.

      how do you compare it to the slash 4x4?
      I thought of getting one and tranferring all the electronics to it.
      i.e. mamba monster 1/8 scale motor /ecu and 3s lipo

      That is so amazing.

      I used to have something similar back when I had my 1:1 Golf, about 5 years ago... I had Votex lights too, they rock




      Sadly, don't own either of these anymore.




      My newest r/c car:





      Tamiya FF-01 wiht a rare Opel Astra shell (which is pretty much only held together by duct tape from the inside).

      Just started taking it apart for a rebuild.

      Looks awesome. Another shot of the two together the night before going to h20i



      but one that I love is this one from h20i this year.



      My RC did its best to stand in for my real car as the real one was still not ready entirely for the trip.

      I have one, but I get bored really quick driving in a bunch of circles. I want to build a trailer for it and tow it with my SCX-10 just for kicks.

      Mines a little large to pull around behind the sc10...

      That's a 12" ruler when I was measuring for graphics.

      Man, that brings back some great memories! I used to have a Grasshopper and a Hornet long before upgrading to an RC10. I have some of my old R/C stuff in storage...I might just have to go dust it off and post some photos one of these days

      Does anyone make a good Wrangler TJ body? Preferably a hard body?

      Was the Tamiya Lunchbox available in lime green? Did the rear doors open to access a 2WD/4WD switch? I had a r/c van back in the day and it looked like the Lunchbox, but I SWEAR it was green. I haven't been able to find so much as a picture of it, but I'd love to acquire one.

      ^^ Try looking for New Bright rcs... cheap toys R' us grade RC... so ~$45 for the complete RTR kit. pull the body, get some fire crackers and you have a fun afternoon and a new body.

      I'm sure if you go on the crawler forums you'll find something.
      Shutup and drive yo cah'!

      I bought it brand new off eBay... With shipping it ended up being about 120 $.

      It has a brushless motor and upgraded ecs not sure what but it is fast! Understeers just like a vr6
