Hi , rc cars have been with me all my life since the late 70s when I was a wee boy and me and my mother (God rest her soul) almost every Saturday would go into our nearest city because she in her early life was a seamstress (remember that profession!) She go to the the store that was relevant to her and I would go to Beattie's and sit and just watch the video in amazement! My first real rc was the tamiya Ford ranger I used that to death then I had to join the real world and work, family, kids and mortgages appeared not necessarily in that order! But rc especially tamiya has always been there sometimes just in the background but always there! It's the most constant thing that has been in my life and always will be I just love em!!!
