I'm just so long lost in this hobby but I think there's a Mugen in the pack. There's definitely an RB engine too.

The costs really varies. It can go as low as about $1200 just to get started and the sky's the limit with aftermarket parts, engines, pipes, custom paint jobs, etc.....

then it's more expensive than my 10D :sweatsm:
i used to have 2 remote-controlled cars
but use batter only, although they got gear box (dun like those without the gear box, hard to turn)
one use 9.6V rechargeable Ni-Cd
run quite fast, i cannot chase it if it don go for straight line.
these toys are also my fantasy, at least few years back.
now give all to my youngest sister :sweat:

They are very expensive. The R/C system alone could be $600+, not the car. My last fling was with a twin belt 4WD small car tat fits the body of Tamiya's Mini Cooper. Full carbon chassis. Very fast. It was made by a Hong Kong company if i'm not wrong. Before that i was toying with Tamiya TA-01, TA-02 & TA-03, I also had a Isuzu Mu 4wd jeep tat was very nicely painted, a Clod Buster 4wd & 4ws monster truck too.

I won't start or go back to this R/C thingy anymore.

This photography thingy is already very expensive.
