USA-1 Vintage Customs

Post by USA-1 » Fri Oct 22, 2010 1:20 am

Most of my collection came from working PT at our LHS in the early 90's. My 1st week working there was the only time I got paid in cash, the rest was paid in hobby stuff. I got everything at his cost and I could just about order whatever I wanted, If I only knew :(
I bought more than I could ever run and working on customers stuff left little time to race. Also since I worked at a hobby store I tried to get all the optional upgrades.
Kyosho USA-1 Nitro Crusher, Dual engine .28 Losi 454's. 18 toothbells, Radio Flysky GT3B. Futaba Servo's S9302 steering, S9301 Gas and Brake 3rd channel S3002.
