I had 4 Tamiya cars a while back. You seen thos X-mods that Radio Shack sells? My co-worker bought one at lunch on a whim and it's a lot of fun.

I was in RS the other day and the guy in there tells me this local kid figured out that the motors from electric tooth brushes run at 100,000 RPM and he puts them in the X-mod cars for speed over 40 MPH! 1:25 scale car going 40 MPH! He burns the bearings up left and right though.

They are stil a little too expensive at $50 a pop IMHO.

I had some rc planes with cox 049 engines. I would spend days building them and then would lose control and crash them on the first flight. It got old quick so I gave it up.

I used to fly R/C gliders...had a 2 meter thermal glider and a aerobatic glider, both running Royal mini servos from a Futaba attack4 radio


just didn't have the time to spend on them....sold everything and bought guns.
