With the amount of traffic we get, it's good to get a post at all.

first was the Hornet when it first came out, I won a bet with my dad that if we won this basket ball game I would get the hornet. We won because the other team only showed up with 4 players and had to forfeit. lol!!

Next was the Hotshot when it first came out. It was great because I raced it stock in the modified class against the Yokhomo Dogfighter and cox. I almost always won. Oh not because of speed or handling, about 2 min in I would be the only car still running. Batteries just were not up to par back then.

I also built a racing monster truck out of a ultima and maximum with blackfoot gears. It was great just to see a clod buster size truck taking jumps and landing like a stadium truck.

Like a lot of you I worked at a hobby store and had just about every car and truck out there.

I started with the Hornet and then bought a Wild One. Still have both and would like to get them going again for my kids. Don't have a clue about rc anymore. Any tips?
