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. :D

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 :D

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 :bsmilie: During those days, a set of ball barings cost $10.90 and it was a whole lot of $$$ to me!
