rc itch...

I know I know. What now?! LOL. Sorry folks but I've got a new itch and its to get myself a radio controlled (rc) vehicle. Moving more towards a buggy as I want to play it outdoors but the touring cars are pretty neat. Hmmm...

Its been a long time since I last played remote control cars but suddenly I feel like getting one for myself. The last one I owned was a 1:10 scale electric powered Tamiya Calsonic Nissan Primera back in 1991 or so. Had to build that car from scratch and it was a proud moment when it finally ran. Sadly though I was rather young and it got damaged running on our roads. Never figured out how to fix it, neither had the money so the car went into cold storage. Its actually still sitting pretty in my cupboard. Unfortunately none of the electric parts or radio control works while the batteries are dead. Its too old to rebuild as parts are hard to come by.

I don't really have time to build a car from the ground up so am looking for a Ready to Run (RTR) kit. Gonna stick to electric powered as the nitro ones are rather pricy to buy as well as maintain. Although those buggers can really fly! Now its more about how much should I really invest. LOL. I know this hobby ain't gonna last long so it doesn't sound right to plonk down much. Am still researching on the brands and what scale I should get. Its between 1:18 to 1:16 or 1:10. Although the latter is too big for my purpose.

Below are some models that I am currently drooling over. ;)
