Anyone into R/C?

Just wondering if anyone else is into R/C cars? I love them, and have been playing with them since i was real young, i even joined a league at one time and raced them, LOL. I have had a bunch of different cars, stadium trucks, monster trucks, buggies, even and onroad car. I really like 1/8 scale buggies though, and i'll have to get some shots of mine, but just wanted to see if anyone else was into them?

I am. But the sad thing is that i kept on buying them to early and i ended up with Stadium Trucks(no fun to me) but i hve had:

Traxxas Rustler (electric)
Traxxas Jato
HPI RS4 on-road
HPI MT2 G3.0 (current and being sold) (look in my gallery)


My next one is the new Traxxas Summit. Awesome Truck and plan to put some Novak Li-Po Motors in it

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I have an RC18B that I screw around with every once in a while. All 4 tires are bald now, and need to find replacements.

Im not "into it" but I bought this thing about 10 years ago and break it out for fun now and then. Definately not a serious one like your gassers but it'll do around 25-30MPH with the electric motors in it

Yeah it's a Nitto special-but I paid good money for it then-like 130 bucks. It has pretty good motors on each axle-it rips pretty good on full charge.

When I was younger I had a Tamiya Boomerang. I actually still have it. My brother and I had the same cars and a couple of kids from the hood had cars as well.

We used to race at indoor tracks every Sunday on astroturf. My brother and I always left with 1st and 2nd place trophies.

I now have 3 of those 1/6 scale Nylint Rockcrawlers.

Here's my T-Maxx. Haven't used it in a while. Not enough fires lately! Oh and this Engine can put out cigarette butts like no other! Anything bigger is a no no for this little guy!
