The Green 1 & the Red 1 are both GV brands , the Green 1 is my 1st airbrush job ever & the only 1 as yet . All the RC's are nitro fuel . The yellow body swaps off with the red body , the yellow 1 & blue 1 are hard plastic bodies just for show

Nice herd of cars. I always liked the fuel power versus electric. I've done the RC planes but never got into the cars...don't know why I always liked them.

Nice!  I have had a Tamiya Clod Buster since I was about 13.  I have not used it in about two years as it needs new batteries and a few parts that I just have not gotten around to purchase.  I would like to add a Traxxas T-Maxx nitro to my collection one of these days.

I started out with r/c planes and then got into racing rc boats . They were outrageously expensive to be competitive. Then back to planes . then over the winter months I ended up racing little mini rc cars. That turned into a real good time and grew into racing 1/8th scale nitrooff road for many years. I finally stopped in 2008 and have been playing with tractors ever since. :-)

I have either a 1/10 or 1/8 nitro buggy. Had it running 5 mins when I first got it , been on the shelf ever since as I couldn't get it started afterwards. Need to sell it, should have went electric.

No way!! I enjoy the seat time too much! When my kids get old enough I plan on introducing the fine hobby of r/c to them. But I want to see an interest first. ;-)

Nice herd of cars. Asphalt racing would be pretty cool. I seen they are doing drifting with them now too. Don't know if I could get in to that. 

 

I have always been in to r/c in some aspect or another since I was around 12. Started with the 1/10 scale lunch box lowered to race dirt oval. Got in to the 1/8th scale nitro buggy and truggy for a year or two. Then went to helicopters, then planes. Now I have been messing with multicopters and video photography.

I can't imagine setting in a lawn chair while the tractor is out in the yard having all the fun.  :(
