    First Hobby Grade RC

    What was your first hobby grade RC?

    With the holidays coming up and trying to figure out what to get my nieces/nephew it brought back memories of my first RC. I received a Tamiya Grasshopper II with yellow dayglo wheels, oil shocks and 540 size motor for Christmas. I remember I couldn't wait till family visits were done and I could start putting it together.

    Even after the Losis and Schumachers started the RC10s ruled the 2wd classes at my local club. Even after Associayed started selling the Graphite versions the old Gold Pan models were still competitive.
    My Optima Mid got me podiums in the 4wd mains until it met an untimely end thanks to a BEC failure/ radio runaway and losing a fight with 1:1 scale traffic .
    On a happy note , our renter’s insurance covered it and I got to help my dad build it’s replacement . A yokomo YZ-10. I still have the Yolomo

    Tamiya Hornet, got it as a slider when I was 11. I built it up and for my birthday that same year my uncle gave me one of his rc10t gold pan trucks. Wish I still had them
