I bought my first Sand Scorcher with a combination of money, from my birthdayand christmas. I managed to beat most cars at my local club until the technology of cars advanced (Kyosho
Progress). Tamiya's Wild One was my last tamiya rc car, before turning to Kyosho Ulima and Lazer ZX. Now with Ebay and TC my Tamiya colection is growing again - Sand Scorcher, Number 2 Porsche 935, NIB Tamtech 934, NIB Pumpkin and NIB Anniversary 934, and now a Mountaineer/Bruiser.
