HUH?

I never figured out how to loop or roll a car so they never quite peaked my interest.
Our kids played with them when they were young. I always had to fix the things so that was a negative for me once again. Now I work in a hobby shop and I see broken cars, truggys, etc. every day. So..... back to the question: What's my favorite? I'd have to say that the car that's leaving the shop with a customer that's going out to have fun with it is pretty much my favorite one!

Thank you, no split S's, knife edges, hammerheads, etc means it's boring. Never had an interest in cars/trucks. Apologies to the OP but this is a plane forum.

Though not as fun as flying, my son used to race an 1/8 scale Losi nitro buggy, on jumps they were able to do front flips, back flips and even straighten the car out if it was going to land off camber by use of the throttle and brakes. its quite something to watch..

My favourite one is my only one. Tamiya CR-01 FJ40 rock crawler, 55-turn motor and 4 wheel steering. I built it just before I got into RC flight. My first build thread!

Bone stock...




I bring it camping and it gets a lot of beach time (rocks, sand and water).




And if my wife tells me to go fly a kite...

+1.

I got into cars when I was a kid. I did have fun with Crawlers for a while, but at the end of the day once you learn their limits they get boring real fast.

I think the challenge of mastering drifting on various surfaces with different models is as fun as it gets, otherwise they're boring real fast. My brother would always see how high he could jump them. He could never keep one going for a week since it would keep breaking.
