    if you have the original Vanquish, I will buy it from you

    They were so hot 6 years ago man.... but the later models suck in design. Actually I keep them for the look, not to race.. hehehe

    i was not interested in the cars or racing them, but i've got a few, still in their boxes. a couple i've opened up for a little project... i'm trying to make a model which will have a front and rear motor, use 3 maybe 4 cells instead of 2, purely for drag racing.

    Is Avante still considered top of the line now?

    IMO, nothing they made after Avante, Avante 2 and Egress came close to these cars in terms of material and quality. So yes, I consider them the top of the line stuff.

    Eh! I also have that blue box! But can't store all my cars. I got almost the whole range of cars but most are unmodified of cause! Gotta rob the bank to modify all of them

    During my time, it was bout 14 years ago, so it was Emperor, Grasshopper, Thunder Shot, Dash 1 and 2, Hot Shot, Big Wig, Fox, Hornet, Avantes.... Some come with those spiky tires During those days, a set of ball barings cost $10.90 and it was a whole lot of $$$ to me!
