They asked me what I was thinking!? I simply told them... I wasn't. :roll:

Here's a link to my "not really a build thread" on the above YR-4 buggy conversion. You know... If you have any questions, comments or hate mail. :mrgreen:

Some nostalgia.

These are a pair of RC10L pan cars. Ok, ok, so the bodies could be painted better but I was like 13 when I did them and the dragon was done backwards by hand with paint brushes. Still have these cars. Probably going to be my next resto project.

The Track Gaithersburg, MD
This is me as a kid probably 92'- 93' Ish standing on the old carpet oval. If you don't know this place Google it! It's changed a lot but it's still there. Off-road Clay track now. Amazing place and Mimi the owner is the friggin best :!:

I do apologize for posting mostly new stuff. It's all a long story but the simple version is this. I was a victim of fraud with regards to a storage unit that held 90% of my prized cars. They were auctioned off behind my back and by the time I found out what happened it was too late to save them. I sued and won regaining some of my money but sadly my babies were gone forever.
I did wind up building a bit of a collection after that. Mostly Tamiya stuff. Avante and Egress stuff mainly. But I found my self in a tough spot a few years ago with my career which forced me to sell them. I thought I was done with RC for good. Recently though I've found more time and here and there, a little $ to spend.
I was lucky to have saved at least my Yr-4 and a couple of RC10L cars from when I was younger.
These cars and my slots are the only things I had at my home when I was for lack of a better word robbed. Oh and my extensive 1/32nd slot collection I've yet to post. Not sure I should because I do want to respect the rules. I've started to rebuild and will eventually acquire more vintage cars but for now this is what I have to show. I hope this gives some perspective on what and why I have posted what I have. I hope you enjoy!

If you guys have any comments please post them on my build thread and not here. Also, if you guys want me to post the 1/32nd collection let me know! The link is below.

Team Magic G4+ limited edition update.

Was bored over the weekend so I painted up an old 200mm lola VDS body from Blitz.
I could have made it nicer but I was too lazy to break out the airbrush. Came out pretty cool though. Freehand drawing and masking.
