I blame Christmas for me going back to an interest, I was more keen on in my later childhood - not long ago.


I have just got the enthusiasm to go search out and dust down my old Radio Controlled car out of the garage.

It is a Mardave Cobra kit, which was respectable at the time.


:bannana: This car I actually modded!! It has uprated battery and motor.


I can't remember why it got left in a box unused, so I am not sure if it is fatal or not, but if I can revive it with a freshly charged battery and some minor loving I am going to.




Does anyone else have RC? - an extra side show at the GTG perhaps?

I hope I do not get back into this too much as I recall you can sink a lot of cash into these toys if you want!

Anyone know of a 1/10th scale W202 body shell? :D

I have put a bit of charge in the car's battery and the battery, motor and speed controller are all fine (dirt on cantacts burnt away with minimal flames and smoke :) )


I set the car down on my patio in full forwards throttle (manually set on, not by RC) and it shot off leaving impressive rubber marks, so I am off for batteries for the RC gear now.

nice brown tape mod you got there :p heheh

I believe HPI or do a W202 Body, infact why get the W202, they have much nicer bodies... let me get their URL.

Tamiya are nice and so are Kyosho.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHH. Nice.


Could not have something that good on my RC though. You have not seen my drving style.

It kind of "I wonder what would happen if I hit that, drive up that, drive off there"..........and so on!

Those are some model names that seem to ring a bell!

:D Memories!

I used to (10 years ago!) run a Schumacher Kat 4wd buggy at the local club in Pateley Bridge.

It was an extremely social sport with people always helping each other out to get back on the track - the only disadvantage was being beaten by an 11 year old (his father wasn't slow either!)

Someone got me this a few days ago, it's remote controlled and you can connect it to your PC. Trouble is, I can't be bothered, so now it's for sale on ebay as an unwanted Christmas present!:confused:
