Grasshopper! All the rich kids in town had the hornet and I really enjoyed every win the budget car. Racing was much simpler 20 years ago.....

while I put rc10l for my first real race car in the other thread, a TAMIYA stryker was my first KIT car...I just didnt/dont consider that a race vehicle.. However I had a ton of fun with it.... I still have it in fact... Back in like 87/88 I used to go watch oval racing.. I asked one of the mod oval racers if they had any motors they would like to sell,,,One of them sold me a 10 turn for 5 bucks... I put that in the tamiya on the street.. Melted the gearing down also melted the plastic in the chassis where the manual servo esc was...LOL... I replaced the chassis but never got around to the gears:thumbsup:

My first car was a Tamiya Fox, took it to the desert twice during the Gulf war! I sure went through a pile of brushes and motors.

One of my "firsts" was a Hornet, was devastated when I broke the chassis until I found out a new one was $8.00! Wow! have times changed!
