I start rc cars when I was 13 with a Wild One after my mate got one and built it I thought I need to get me one of those. Then I progressed to a BP Mini Mustang which eventually got converted into a Maxima (so wish I kept that one??£££) Then an RC10, after the RC10 I got into the Schumachers cars as my mate had a CAT LX which I got running for him I got a Cougar Mk1 great car. More recently I got an what I believed to be another Cougar which I now believe is a Club 10. I also are currently building a CAT XLS with the kids so they might learn a little something about rc cars instead of just buying ready to runs. I believe the cars always should be built from kit if you are raceing. I live near Winchester and used to race in Romsey, Titchfield, Lordshill etc.
