Thanks recefaceec90 great find!
I remember watching SwapShop or some other Noel Edmunds kids programme which had rc cars on it around 82 or 83, and I persuaded my dad to take me to London to Beatties models.
I ended up getting a Tamiya Audi Quattro which was had a similar chassis to Wild Willy. Not the best to drive but I loved it, and they're pretty rare now.
I spent ages looking through the Tamiya catalog, and nearly managed to talk my folks into buying me a Toyota Hilux!
I also got a new fox when they first came out, and bought a used Kyosho Scorpion from someone in the local rc club.
Totally agree there's something about Tamiya's, my brothers Kyosho Optima was much better to race, and I thought RC10's were better as well, but Tamiya's just had something about them.
Here's a pic of my re-release frog, and my GMaxx/UE Maxx
