With body.

Thanks for reminding me about these, I think its time to pick one up now that my new house is all wood flooring. Wheres a good place to order these? Kyoshos website doesnt have the 787B in stock. And is there a list of all the bodies available anywhere?

Good because if they sold those I'd be robbing a liquor store tomorrow to pay for it.

Did any of you guys ever play that RC car racing sim for the Playstation 1? I've been trying to remember the name.

Nah the one I'm thinking about was an actual sim, you built a car and such and controller it from like the perspective of the stand. Think Gran Turismo with RC cars.

Edit:Found it

Haha you have Bit Char-Gs too? I have a bunch of really rare poo poo, like the full Skyline history set which has the KPGC110 fastback, and R32, and R34, along with a limited edition Dome Zero body. Is it worth anything?

Probably not I spent a fortune (relative) on mine. $60AUD for the kit, $60 to have FETs on the motherboard, motors, gear sets, extra bodies, higher capacity batteries.... I even pulled apart VHS cassettes and used the tiny springs inside to make suspension for the front wheels.

The automodelista kit came with a Supra, RX7, R32 GTR and an R34 GTR (the JGTC style, not the other style body they made for R34s). Id also bought a Celica body, red R32 GTR, 350Z and a Nissan gloria. Gloria was by far the coolest.

I think the rarer kits might fetch something but most are probably worth nothing. Mine is one of the 'boost' (which is apparently japanese for 'deactivate voltage limiter') PCBs and they were less common - I think the most rare were the Xbox WRX kits? not sure.

I also had 2 chinese knock offs - Honda accord wagon and a S2000, both of which were faster than the genuine out of the box.


EDIT: apparently youre in luck!!

Hmm good to know, mine isnt in the greatest shape though and recently the little box I kept it all in tipped over sending loving little car parts everywhere in a drawer.

Do any of you guys have any idea what an Electronic Traxxas Stampede would be worth? I bought it years back, got a new body for it, some custom shocks, new battery pack, and it comes with a really nice airplane remote as well as a charger that was called the "Super Brain something something" with auto trickle charging and poo poo.

That was an MRC Super Brain iirc. Whatever happened to MRC anyway? I remember they had some crazy no-questions-asked 90 day warranty or something. Didn't matter if you wrecked your car doing something stupid, they would replace the part.

Yeah its a really solid, really nice charger, it even comes with jumper cables so you can charge it off car batteries.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck I wish the rally class would catch on.

This is killer, get me some Group B bodies for it and I'd be a very poor man.

They look very similar to the "Bit Char-g" cars by Tomy. Those things are awesome, I still have my micro rc Dome Zero and Skyline history set.

For the love of god somebody tell me where to get one of these, preferably RTR, colour isn't important.

Edit:Hurr that website has them in red and blue, does anyone else know any other websites? I'd like to compare prices and have a backup option.
