Wow Joel!!!! Those are seriously cool cars! The technology in the chassis and suspension are something I’ve not seen before!

I’ll second that.
They are seriously cool cars!
I started indoor RC racing with a model called the Lectricar back in 1976.
There is still an enthusiast restoring them today.
Model cars were always a second love.
I’ve been an aeromodeller ever since my sister bought me a Kielkraft Nomad glider kit when I was 7.
Free flight, control line and then finally RC.
I built this a few years ago before they started calling them “drones”.


This link might be useful for any other ”vintage” aeromodellers out there.
Wish I kept my old COX GT40 and Chaparral and tool box full of goodies.
Bill, I had a white chaparral 1/32 scale Eldon slot car. Also had a root beer colored GT40 Hotwheels. But it was the 1/32 nd Scale Blue 63 Corvette Coupe that ignited my car passion when I was four years old. My dad brought the slot car set home and once I saw that Corvette I was hooked!

Here is a pic..

I started with a Scalextric Lotus, then put a Mustang body on, then got into scratch building cars, then ended up working full time as the `resident driver` for a slot cat company called Pitstop here in New Zealand which lead onto being the North Island champion 1 /32 scale 3 years running. Sadly I did not keep all my trophy`s but still have a couple of early ones. The rest is history...road racing go karts, circuit racing small saloons and now building race / road cars. Not much has changed in 70 years this January. That trophy was 51 years ago........
