From 7 years old until i was 10 I saved all my birthday money and christmas money up. I had watched my brother play with his Tamiya Fox since it was brand new and I all ways wanted an RC car that good. So when I turned 10, he drove me into the city one early evening to a hobby shop. I picked out an FF-01 Nissan Castrol Primera and handed over my life savings. He drove me home and stayed up all night building it. when I woke in the morning, the car was sitting on my bedroom floor built, painted and ready to go!
A couple weeks later he also bought a Tamiya M-01 mini cooper. We also had a Marui Galaxy and 2 Tamiya RC Newman 956 Porsche's. we would go down to our local track nearly every night and drive our front wheel drive RC cars lol. I still have both these cars in tact, working order sitting on my shelf, they are in pristine condition.
