The quintessential Tamiya R/C model? The Hornet, by Tamiya, is a true icon of the R/C hobby. And one of the most versatile and rugged vehicles of all time.
The Tyco/Taiyo Turbo Hopper was a hugely popular R/C toy buggy in the USA in the mid 1980s. It was the American release of the Taiyo Jet Hopper.
Popping wheelies was all the rage in the early 1980s, and this little R/C Volkswagen Beetle from Radio Shack (made by Nikko) was among the cutest R/C wheelie cars.
The toy that first started my interest in R/C cars… the Jeep Renegade was a lovely, scale Jeep R/C model that was built to last.
