    old school...hahaha....and we used to walk about proudly with toolboxes....lol.
    My car took part in competitions...one lost...coz it failed mysteriously....one i was disqualified coz i modified the turbine engine with another material as the coils...haha....and the last my car was too fast, caught up with the last car collide and flew out...disqualified...lol.

    Hehe...
    I still have my Avante Black Special and Super Astute Black. Can't find the Boomerang my cousin gave to me anymore. Also have another cousin with the Egress Black Special but his mum might have given them away to charity by now.
    Also have the Arii racetrack (with loop) lying in the box for the past 4 to 5 years in my room. Heh..
    Anyone remembers the Super-turbo motor from Hwa Hwa (2 distributors back from the current distro)? Heh..

    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
    six years ago, still hot? sure or not? i know back then around my area in 1990/1, there were weekend races held... or was it monthly races? still holding on to my modded avante black special jr + another "crippled" avante black special jr, and two avante 2001 jrs' and one more avante jr

    rainman, you mean, "being nuts is neat!" from the avante jr, right?

    afbug, yeah, i know of people who cried and tui sim after the wheel flew off after a crash, and had to buy another pack of ball bearings to replace that ONE missing one

    firefox, the old distro was Hua Hua, not Hwa Hwa.
