Well, this is as close to the real thing as I get...

Thought Tiger might get a kick of my latest body for my 1/10th scale carpet racer. :)

1/10th scale... that's pretty good size!

Not that big, but big enough to be easier to drive.
Roughly 17" long, 10"wide
Brushless motor, LiPo battery
Will rip right along for 10min or more

This one's more up your alley, Bryan:

LOL! Nice...

No, it's a spec class, so that's what we have to run. If the car were a bit different, I'd be able to run Vintage wheels, that look just like old Crager 5-spokes in chrome.

So where do you race these things? Is there a little track you guys go to? Can you change the suspension setup and have it react accordingly? Looks fun. :)

there's a track locally... www.rcexcitement.com ... huge indoor area, special carpet, click in place barriers to make layout changes a breeze.

and yes, they are VERY adjustable... http://speedmerchantonline.com/cars/Spe ... pecII.html
That will give you a look at the chassis... and this is just a beginner/spec car... check out the Rev5 12th scale cars on the site... the engineering is akin to F1 design... even similar materials

I managed to break all my good "RC Toys"
The one I liked the most was a Radio Shack Monster Truck that suddenly decided to stop working.

But I got "a few" models. I started with the DUB ones, but now I try to get only Maisto or other makes that produce original cars.

cheap diecasts are no fun. You need to either start building 1/24 scale models, or have me build them for you. :D

I go with the second option...hard for me to deal with small pieces, that's why I buy them ready.
I enjoy Maisto: nice models, fits my budget.
Yes I have an Lotus F1 handbuilt (I guess), and love it.

Could you build a Senna McLaren? If so, what would be the price? ;)
