  • Remember the mad bull?

  • I had this as kid...

  • Never knew about these, they had aluminium parts, http://www.rc-airplane-world.com/tamiya-­srb-series.html

  • I def remember that, my school mate had one, I was very jealous.

  • Just read the rest of one of your previous posts ordinata, do you race it only on carpet?

  • I had...

    Tamiya Madcap - bathtub plastic chasis. Upgraded the drivetrain and chassis in the end.
    Schumacher Procat - four wheel drive jobby. First serious one
    Schumacher Cougar - two wheel drive jobby - very quick
    Losi-XXX - another two wheel drive but with a plastic/carbon chassis.

    Computer games just killed this stuff - gutted, as it was awesome fun.

    All were awesome. Raced at Chingford.

  • Did the Madcap upgrade make much difference?

    TBH 2, 3, 4 are serious.

  • I used to the love the Tamiya promo vids that used to play in the toy shops.

  • third up from the bottom right corner above the skyline, an f40???????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!­!!
    I have to get one!!

  • a fucking f40!!!!!!

  • I loved Tamiyas as a kid - took me 2 years of begging and saving to get a Monster Beetle - i have a mate who is still into RC, has aall sort of cars, planes and helicopters.

    He has a petrol powered dune buggy, bigger than a Tamiya, which accelerates about as fast as my motorbike, insane bit of kit

  • I can see the hornet in there

  • Petrol RC cars...I could only dream of owning one of them when I was a kid

  • tell me about it...

  • I remember one kid in my street having one and he was a proper cunt

  • anyways, any people wanting to maybe have a bit of a race at some point, we should arrange a meet up.

  • Get it finished and racing! What kind of motor you thinking of putting in it?

    Traxxas titan 10 turn. Not really up on all this, but my dad builds RC boats and thats what he suggested.

    This was last years Crimbo present thats been kind of forgotten about. I never had one as a child although all my mates did, I preferred bikes.

    Motor and servos now ordered.

  • It was a Tamiya 'Wild One' for me...beat the Hornet and Grasshopper hands down! :]
    I used to race it at a school RC club...kicked ass!

  • Used to have a hornet (had two, the clear body one that I wore out was replaced with a version with a stiffer bodied, opaque one). Never wanted one but they were the only one I could afford... I'd completely forgotten about the Egress - that was ace.

    Had a mini cooper model as well that went like stink, but I can't for the life of me remember the manufacturer - another Japanese one I think...

    I have just over that, 10.5t. Mines an LRP eraser brushless combo, can use up to 8t brushed motors on it.
    Get it ready to race!!
