what? mid engine?? it is so modern now.

I used to have Magnum Saber, Cyclone Magnum TRF, Beak Spyder, few Super Astutes and Yankuro's Tamiya as well.

Among all of them, I only modified my Super Astute (sort of project Tamiya). Tried Hyper Dash, Mach Dash, Hyper Ultra Dash , Plasma and so called Chu Kin (chinese brand but runs very fast).

Still got most of mine, and i think most of them still run, just needs a respray. That was definately the start of why I like to take things apart, went from that to gundams to airsoft and now to cars. I just discovered that as you get older, the toys get more and more expensive. Now that I am so into LS1s I think i might try to make a mini version to cram into one of them.

Those damn things, Skipped lunch for 5 days to buy a set of metallic ball bearings then another 3-4 days to buy the super "stabilizer" poles + weights. I was so happy when my Avanti won like a $50 prize in a race when I easily dumped over $100 in mods on it.

I'd remember seeing a movie like that, at the end they all sent out mini 4WD to catch those thieves. Pretty stupid but fun to watch back then .
