I have a Kyosho Ultima, the only original part is the gear box. All Novak electronics, full ball bearings(gear box,steering and wheels), Trinity Gagantua motor(82k rpms), flat graphite chassis, alloy camber kit, aluminum screws-bolts and some kind of gold shocks. If it ever hit you at full speed it would break your ankle.
Mods: Tri Color Reverse glow gauges, Type R red Floormats, AEM V2 CAI, Axle back exhaust, Projectors, Coilovers, B&M Short throw shifter, 4-2-1 Header, LS/VTEC, gsr cams, AEM camgears, si pistons, balanced ls rods, crank.
I still have my old Midnight Pumkin from tamiya. Just went back to the rotary speed controller just for nostalgic purposes. Its awsome. Too bad my brothers Tamiya Lunchbox became the parts donor. We used to race for HOURS on end.

I started racing R/C back in '84. Ive had many cars and trucks over the years.
I have kept a few over years. I have a Tamiya Frog and Blackfoot. A very early RC-10. The first RC-10T. The First Losi truck. A Traxxas truck, 3 RC10L's, From Custom Works I have a Dominator, Enforcer and a Intimdator. From HPI a have many on-road cars for both road and oval racing.
I raced mostly mod classes. I still have many RecTech mod motors and at least 40 various stock motors with different timing advances. All my controllers were Futaba ie: Magnums, Magnums JR's.. The newest one is a 3PS from about '95.
I never like Tekin products in any way. I used all Novak all the time.
Now I've been racing go karts for the last 6 years.
my first was an electric hpi rs4, then i got a traxxas nitro sport to try out the nitro side of the playing field, then i got a nitro 4tec 2.5, it's all fun but it costs alot of money and takes alot of upkeep for how short you drive them lol
