Started off with a sand rover in the early 80's. A few years later I nearly bought a 2nd hand rough rider for £30, but ended up with a new grasshopper instead. Then went to a hotshot, sold that to buy a hornet (Doh!), then sold that to get a second hand hotshot. Went through a variety of cars in the 80s & early 90s, but sold them all to finance the next purchase. I've scratchbuilt several models since joining TC in 2010, including a 4x4x4 Lunch Box with Hi Lift axles and leaf springs, a 1/10 John Deere skidder (Forestry Machine) with a 5674 brushless motor, plus 3 540 motors to operate lifting and dropping the front blade, the steering, and the winch, a 1/10 Mad Max War Rig (8Ft Long), which is 6x6 and has a 2400 Watt brushless motor in it so it will do 18mph, a 6x6 1/10 Scammel explorer style truck with a king hauler gearbox, and lastly a 1/10 scale half track.
Users I have had good deals with on TC :
Lindorf, Mad Maz, Dannycab, The-way, CossieP100, ActualDay, Mr Nice, StevePi, Lupogtiboy, hotrod, truck4x4x4, Markwhittaker, SludgeGuts, bromvw, SKip665, BigGameHunter, Cullen, Foxaddict, plus a few others I can't remember.
I always remove trade items once they are sold, so if anything is in my traderoom it is still for sale, even if it's been there a couple of years.
