Just thought I would share a couple of pictures of my latest r/c 'toy'. I got them from a neighbour for free, so can't loose really. :D  

 

Tamiya 4WD Escort Cosworth.

I'll post pics of the nitro car chassis when it's a bit cleaner. :shy: My collection is, very slowly, growing.  :gimme:

No idea to be honest. It needs a new battery, and another motor in the box, but don't even know if it works yet. >_< Either way, It's my first decent electric R/C car. I was always into nitro or petrol, but I really like this electric one. ;D

Well, I started of with a 1/10 scale r/c car, just before everyone wanted a nitro r/c car. After much thinking, when I was a teenager, I decided a monster truck was the way forward, and reverse. :lol: I've also got a 1/6th scale petrol buggy. The monster truck is the baby though, I bought it new. :wub:

 

I also got a schumacher nitro 10, I think, nitro buggy chassis and engine off my neighbour a couple of days ago. :D

My calipers are now silver, for anyone wondering. I've lost 10bhp by doing this, but needs must. :lol:

That tamiya 4WD Escort Cosworth from the mid 90's are quite collectable and desirable now, so well worth keeping hold of. That's also one of my favourite rally cars of the mid 90's too.

I dug my Nitro Car out the other day, I keep contemplating repairing it and getting it going again, only thing putting me off is that a few years ago, I set fire to myself with the Nitro fuel, ended up in the burns unit for 2 weeks

I Was told at the time that it burns hotter than petrol. Not fun stuff.

 

Im not sure of the exact model, its a Kyosho that I built myself around 9-10 years ago 

 

It Has Gx-12 Stamped on the engine if that helps
