    nice collection, i had the Blackfoot and Vanquish back in the day (sold off decades ago though), other friends had the Hornet, Hotshot, Lunchbox etc, everyone had a different kit

    i am not a big RC collector though... i wanted the avante because i could never afford one in the 80s

    Thanks , I'm not really a collector , the rc10's I couldn't afford as a kid and the schumachers are what I used to race back in the late 80's early 90's and the tamiya's are just for pure nostalgia

    used to have a blackfoot too, not sure what happened to it either. It did get well used though and was a basket case when i stopped playing with it!
