Just like what the title says...

My dad use to race in Austin all the time when I was like just born.

I have a home made chassis built off a bolink invader. 1/10
And a Tamya buggy. I forgot what it was called I think it’s a Hornet 1/10
Both from 86 or 87.

And they still run too, I have tracked down old parts so that they still run.
They have all Futaba electronics too. The two controllers are from the 80's as well.

Whats your oldest?

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.

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.

The FX-10 was'nt futaba's only car they also made the FX-T which I own pictured here.I have an FX-10 still sealed in the box and I want to build it sooooooooo bad,but I know what I'll do.Build it and never run it so it may as well stay sealed.
