Since we're talking about our old rc cars, my favorites as a kid were the tyco fast traxx (with the tank style tracks) and after that smashed that to pieces i got the tyco ricochet (the old version, i saw they released a new version recently). I really liked that one cause the wheels were bigger than the body so if it flipped you could still drive it. My cousin had one too and we would play something we called "sewer wars" where we would try to push the other persons car into the sewer drains, then go climb in there to pull them back out.
I've been into rc stuff for as long as i can remember. As a very small child my father got me a 4wd truck and i was hooked every since. Took a break when i got older, but now i'm back at it
