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. Favourite vehicles now are brushless thundershot, a 4x4 Lunchbox I built myself, and a rerelease hotshot with an original HP suspension kit on. Trying at the moment to get through a 2 year build of scratchbuilt King tiger with a scale thickness hull made from steel. Rebuilding the transmission after the first design shredded itself on the first outing.
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.
