I saw a few Tamiya Monster Beetle NIB kits were selling on eBay for $700+. I guess you can relive your youth, but it will cost you.

whoa, just stumbled onto this thread and.......
well all the post so far are from youngster in
rc car racing.
my first rc car was a heathkit with a heathkit 6 channel
radio(1969 circa). the first race i entered was the 1970 nationals
in westfield indiana. citizenship radio was the host and race site.
my friend worked for citizenship and each time i dinged a servo he
would take it inside and put new gears in it. i probably went thru 10 or 12
over the 2 days. thanks dave. it was a fantastic experience. i doubt if anyone there
thought rc car racing would grow to what it is today.
it was a great ride.

Howdy folks.

My first "real" RC car was a Tamiya Grasshopper. I don't miss it!

My first rc Car was an AYK bobcat folowed by a gold pan RC-10 which I still own. Went on to racing RC-12 and 1/8 pan cars and in 1982 won the 1/8th scale amature torphy with a PB Delta International. I still remember going to the wreckers to buy an Austin Mini starter motor to power my starter box for the 1/8th nitro. Had some of the best racing memories from that period, nothing like "Run what ya brung" racing.
I too still long for the days of "What's a hopup part?" and "Marshall, hey fathead get my car back on the track!"

although ive been in rc for many years . im only 38 but my first semi cool rc was the tyco turbo hopper . then my to this day all time fave the midnight pumpkin . nothing like some good old fashioned bunch of guys in a parking lot full of them and lunck boxes having the time of our lives !!!! i miss the simplicity of rc back in the day not its all about how fast can you afford to go ..
