  1. I logged in today. That was a first since last year
  2. I originally had a 75mhz Futaba Magnum Jr. with my Wild One in 1986. My vintage Wild One sitting here in 2020 has a 75mhz Futaba Magnum Jr.
  3. I have a SuperStock RZ in my Avante (ran my Avante yesterday actually). REALLY nice punch even with a six-cell Nimh.
  4. Came back today to check on how thing's were going. As for me, I just seemed to disappear one day. A lot of reasons why, in no particular order: - Satisfied with my current collection. I have most of the cars I wanted as a kid, sans a few that are out of reach in my opinion because of $$$ - Prices aren't what they used to be for busted up and beaten examples of 80's buggies. Every person selling junk thinks they have a treasure. - Started delving into HO trains. Honestly it was kind of inevitable. I've always wanted to build a small town, can use my hobby skills immensely, tons of electrical work I can do, build and expand over time, can do it inside when the weather is terrible. - I'm in a midst of a full-blown transition since I'm transgender (yeah...um....I never mentioned it on this site but maybe a few times). Money for family and transition sometimes takes precedent. - Was laid off permanently back in March and still job searching. - Interest just waned. Ebb and flow I guess. Still lots of RC projects I'd like to do one day. Hey, I did finally fix and run my vintage Hotshot last weekend So there you have it, I'm still here and I didn't ded. Hope y'all are doing well. Much love and Cheers! Blake
  5. Drove my Avante, LaFerrari and 1/16 C24 Hilux yesterday. And logged back in here after nearly a month of being away
  6. Two GHII's and a Super G...a man after my own heart
  7. When I restored my original Hotshot, I was running it on its maiden voyage after a full rebuild/restoration. I broke the rear shock mount, broke one of the wing mounting points, and broke the shock travel swivel. In one run of under 30 seconds, I broke three parts. That was an expensive repair since I didn't use re-re stuff. I'm nearly certain the previous owner had this thing in a hot Missouri attic.
  8. You guys should have seen what the US Postal Service or Canuckistan Mail did to my 58002 that I sold to a gentlemen in Canada two years ago. Blame couldn't be placed, so I ended up refunding him over $200 since the entire A-pillars were smashed, roof crushed and glass broken. I felt absolutely gut-punched for him and it still burns me up to this day.
  9. I bought a 1/16 WPL C24 Toyota Hilux and had Nathaniel at MCI make a set of 1/16 Bruiser decals for me. So now I have Mini-Bruiser. Seemed to satisfy my itch for a Broo and much less $ to hop up
  10. Avante 88. Fortunately, I was finally able to acquire a 2011 version just recently.
  11. Lovely Super G! That turned out great. They're fantastic runners also and light years beyond the stock GHII
  12. I also have one of these with a matching rx and servos. It's a nice shade of doo doo brown also. It's as horrible as it looks and I'm not sure why I think it's charming sitting in my Frog.
  13. I'm a huge Airtronics fan also!. Having raced with an XL2P for several years. I currently own three of them in pristine condition and unfortunately neither one of them work. Something internally fails after years which basically melts the battery holder. And Battery holders are getting to be rare. I keep striking out trying to find an XL2P that works and won't go all Chernobyl on me. I have two MX-3's, one regular and one synthesized. Love those radios dearly too. Lastly, I have a Blazer Sport that has the optional colored steering wheel and throttle/steering knobs. When Airtronics finally went out of business, it was a like a small piece of my childhood racing passed away. Same with Novak.
