Default RC Boat/Car, who has them?

I looking for some stuff up in the attic tonight and decided I would take a few pictures of the old RC toys! They haven't been used in more than 10 years and I just don't have the heart to get rid of them.

Hard to believe , your usually on the cutting edge of technology. Maybe we could make some cool vids running them off the end of b dock at low tide.

Cutting edge with an old resin bucket

He should dust off that old boat and bring it down to run the the lagoon. I know someone that would get a kick out of it

Old Tamiya cars can be worth some $$. Check out similar listings on e-bay.

Yeah, it was the chit when it was new. As usual I could never leave something alone and had to upgrade the motors. If you recall it has 2 motors! I also rigged it so it had 3 batteries, it could run for almost 2 hours without a recharge.

Dude, I got that truck when I was 10 yrs old! The body, tires with the exception of the upgraded motors is all orginal.


The boat was a lot of fun! I think I paid over $1K for it and I was about 15 yrs old. The only reason I remember is because I didn't have a license yet and had to get my father to drive me down to Chris' Landing to use it. That 3.5CC nitro motor screams! I experimented with the Nitro in the family chain saw once too.... The last time I ran that boat I was 18 and just started working at the marina. The guys wanted to see it so we drove it around by the floating dock on lunch break! The boat hasn't been used since.
