Used to love my 1/8th scale nitro buggy it was a riot, but it was so big, heavy and powerful I got fearful of running it anywhere where there was the chance of general public being around. I'm not so bothered with the 1/10th scale stuff as it's quite a lot lighter and smaller. I just wanted something I could run anytime I fancied rather than having to go on a mission to run it. It's a hobby that has to fit in around the busy family life and other activities although I may try and get to the local astro buggy track over the winter this year so my boys can race again.

not necessarily, Schumacher pins and spikes are control tyres for many leagues/events.
I've never bought a schumacher and I've got about 15 sets of them.......

started off with a hornet back in 89 used to knock about with a couple of lads who both had hot shot 2s which were a little better than my hornet.
still have the hornet in the shed just needs a speed controller. then went onto the glow fuel cars,think the two i had were called thunder tiger eb4s which were crazy.
also still have a traxxas bandit still in the box like new. also have a fwd vw beetle that you got if you bought a brand new beetle at the time, that came off a guy at chelford car boot who worked for vw and i think helped himself to a dozen or so kits.

also have a very nice old electric 4wd delt driven off roader with a lot of nice purple ano hop up parts but dont know what it is. this also came from a local car boot. sadly none of them get used any more :cry:

Sorry for the bad photos, I had a midnight pumpkin back in the day which I used to race every Sunday.
So in memory of that I recently bought and built this Lunchbox which is essentially the same model

Nice 8)

I had a Tamiya Monster Beetle and a Hornet, I bought them but myDad had to build them for me as I lacked patience :facepalm:

Even bought a racing battery which lasted a whopping 8 mins if I remember correctly.
