I have been into Tamiya R/C cars off and on for many years. My first R/C car was a Monogram Lightning, then I mowed enough lawns to purchase a brand new Tamiya Fox in 1985 . Still own it and my original Super Shot that I purchased new. Both buggies are in perfect condition and still have their original boxes and radios. I have been captivated by these cars since the age of 11. I used to go to the hobby shop with my friends during the summers and we would stare at the glass cases that held these cars. They were unlike anything we had ever seen and I still feel that way today.
