I'm slowly getting there (completing 'my cars from back in the day' collection). This was my very first R/C car, that I got for 7th birthday back in 1981. Please check last pic down :D It took some years to figure out which car it was, and then suddenly I found this one in good condition for peanuts. It even has the battery cover and the battery tray is clean. It's quite tiny (especially compared to a Slash!!).

me and my mates in 1981

yep, particularly when I made a test run in the living room: it got stuck in the gaps between the floor tiles

I would really love to have more old pics from my other cars back in the day, but I think that's about it for now.

I just found info about the car on the Taiyo website. It was released in 1980 (model no. 8003): [Click here]

Whoaa, serious 80's flashback! A friend of mine had a similar Opel Ascona, I think! Always great to bath in memories (which you did a lot in the last few weeks, it seems!)
