    Hi,

    Wasn’t sure how to contact members from a previous chat on 90s radio control cars.

    I was hoping to chat to fervouredimage & stylish about their BRCA days http://singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/resurrecting-old-early-90s-rc-cars

    Looking to get hold of some of the early cars to be restored, any help appreciated!!

    Thanks,
    Andy

    Not after the Schumachers in the OPs post then?

    I had the terra scorcher, amazing car but massive chassis weakness, costly rebuilds.

    nemesis – no, although they are great cars I already have both!!

    I’m looking for prototypes and modified cars used for racing

    I ran a terra scorcher for a weekend, only had one battery and a 24 hr charger so only got to use it twice!! – absolutely loved it though!

    You’d have liked my Tomy Intruder then, I’d guess not many of those about. Seem to remember it having a trick 60:40 torque splitter.

    Scorching hot Futaba 112B and hot wired 148 servo, poor man’s racing!

    Hi OP

    I raced some of these when I was a teenager – mid 80’s

    Recently I came across some old kit that has laid dormant for quite a while!

    If you are interested I can take a detailed look, but I rememeber it being a Tamiya hotshot, with a custom chassis / electronic speed controller etc

    I have no idea if it works though!

    Let me know if more pictures / detail is needed!

    Cheers

    wrightyson – ive never raced mardave, owned a couple to thrash about and they are well fun!

    daveh – the Tomy intruders were amazing, hard to get parts for. Worth a mint now tho!!

    alibongo001 – the hotshot sounds great, and as you say was a great mid 80s car that was a successful racer. Yeah I would be interested!

    Would really like to get hold of member stylish as he mentioned some Tamiya racing prototypes that he raced.

    Those intruders were odd – or rather Tomy getting in on the RC game out of nowhere was. Anyone know what happened – did they just not develop it or the product line any further?

    To modern cars, they’re really ugly now, aren’t they – I guess it’s the mid-engine layout to blame but…

    Hi Fakiee,

    Always happy to chat about my old BRCA days – good memories.

    I’ll keep an eye on this thread or if you want to email me i’ll give you my contact address.

    fervouredimage – be great to chat mate 🙂

    Yeah the intruders were odd, really strange for Tomy to get into that market.

    I cant believe how ugly RC cars are now, the cab forward bodies are hideous! But i guess they appeal to the younger generation, just me being old!

    DaveH if you ever wanted to sell that Tomy Intruder I would be very interested.
