Back in 2017, an Italian TV show called I Fatti Vostri featured a segment about collecting that featured vintage R/C cars. Watch the video.
2016 marks the 30th Anniversary of the release of the Jet Hopper worldwide. Let’s enjoy some memories of the Jet Hopper as it was “Down Under”, in Australia.
With a blazing top speed of 31km/h, Taiyo’s twin-motor Lamborghini Countach LP500S of 1987 was one of the best looking toys of this iconic supercar.
High speeds, crazy spins, and virtually impossible to control on a racing track, the Taiyo Cyclone aka “Scorcher 6×6” was a “point and blast” experience.
Let’s look at a selection of classic 1980s R/C tyres, back when cars were designed to look more realistic, fun and exciting.
The original Taiyo Jet Hopper from Japan was a game-changing ready-to-run R/C toy that sold worldwide, and in the millions. It was a huge hit for Taiyo, and possibly the most popular R/C car of the 1980s.
