I just got my associated rc18t back up and running and i was wondering what other cool older cars people have on here, Perhaps even older than my rc18t. Heres a couple pics of my original V1 rc18t.
The other pics are of my very first rc car i ever got 25 years or so ago when i was 7 or 8. Its an original hpi nitro mt. Clearly back thrn i didnt clean things after every run like i do now. I would assume it doesn't run but who knows. I haven't driven it it probably 20+ years. The body is the very first body i painted that my dad helped me with. The shocks even feel like they still have oil in them.

Nice cars for sure @carckton driver! I always wanted to go nitro but never did...

My main one (still have it today) was a tamiya f103rs. Was fast enough for its time and remember dropping over $100 for a 3000 mAh nihm... Spent many summers driving with my buddy who had a f103. Hit a pebble and these things flew! That pic is about 5 years old but still runs good.

I had a tamiya mad fighter too. I had thought about 3S'ing that one before I broke down and bought a Typhon 3S...don't regret that decision.... My brother @Phantom21 had the same chassis and rolled over me on that one...I paid him back this year when I broke his MT-10 so we're even now :D

Come to think of it, my son and I collided today...I broke his shock the same damn way!

Yeah... typo, not $1000 but $100... I was a jobless teenager. Yeah though kits were just around $100-$200. F103rs had carbon fiber plates for the chassis, remember that being cool for its time..

I've posted this in a couple of other threads, but here it is one more time for posterity. This is my Team Losi JRX-Pro from 1990, with period correct Team Novak T-4 ESC & NER-2X micro receiver and Futaba S132H servo.

If it ain't broke, you're doing it wrong.

The red/black one was my first hobby grade rc truck that I bought myself for my birthday back in 2015, the blue/grey one I bought less than a month later. Fast forward to today and I still have the blue/grey one but I sold the red/black one years ago then recently bought another one to try and find a solution to the fatal flaw of the platform, I was unsuccessful in that attempt however. I currently have 23 cars.

And, I have a Navok ESC and a Futaba one also.. probably in the box.

I need to get some pictures but I have a Tamiya TA02 stadium truck, it was my first RC when I was maybe 9? my daughter runs it now, its an onroad 2wd with a Supra body. I bought my first nitro an RS43 not long after I think it was around $300 I cut a lot of lawns to pay for that thing, my neighbors had nitros too and we would be out there all day running them
