Tamiya Mini 4WD

I don't know if you guys remember playing with these when you were younger but I remember back in the day they were extremely popular.
Well I was scrolling through youtube and came across this, everything is cooler filmed with a highspeed camera , just thought I'd share

Just wondering... the drive wheels are mounted on the axle like on a go-kart. Do they design different axle rates like with go-karts?

I went through two waves of this stuff. First when I was in HK, then again when I was here when it got popular again.

I wasted so much money on this stuff...

But I learned a lot too...like building things, taking stuff apart, learning the concept of "standardized parts", etc.

What the fuck makes you think you have the right to fuck with anyone's food? FOR YOUR FUCKING INFORMATION, the restaurant closes 10 mins after I get in, not 10 mins before.

I used to have a 20,000rpm electric motor...then I used more copper wires to make it
spin even faster. Swear to god, it could go faster than a ferrari in 1/8 mile.

but it was fucking stupid. you let it go and it never stops and comes back, you getta
run miles away to get it back . Also I have way too many got ran over by cars.

i remember my dad wired the copper motor for me, and it was much faster than anything you could buy on the market...

But the motor became so hot that it melted the motor casing after 5 mins

I remember my dad used to be so into it.....we held a race for everyone in our apartment at the time....and our winner was one that had twin motors in it...^^

It was going so fast that we had to put pieces and pieces of iron on top of it so it wouldn't fly out the track....xDD
