Did 'em as a kid, then rediscovered them in the '90s. Went knuts, ended up racing in the USRA series in FL. Crazy fast...

Still love the old "RTR" (ready-to-run) cars. The #9 car is a Cox Chaparral:

Below is what I was racing in the series. Hand assembled motors are around $300.00 each, you need two or three per race (they're rebuilt afterwards):

I'm almost scared to register to play- I can see hours evaporating already!
