R/C cars

Recommended Posts

I used to geek on these things in the 80's. The North side of Chicago did not offer much for offroad or smooth pavement.

 

However, I am looking forward to my son being old enough to get into these so I can restart an old hobby.

 

I was just chatting with a friend who is still into this... I had no idea the technology & styling had gotten to so far (I guess I should have assumed, everything else evolves)

 

....but I just watched this:

 

and a few other videos, cool shit. (not the music, just the styling of cars)

 

Anybody into this?

 

Gas/Electric - onroad/offroad?

 

 

It seems to be serious bizness for a select few.

used to love RC's as a young buck..

we never had enough money for me to have anything that went faster than i could walk.

some friends tho, they had the gas powered ones that would go fast as hell..

hop'n em off bike ramps n shit..

 

i imagine getting back into this hobby "for your son" of course, would be fun..

post pics when you finally buy one..

when i was younger my pops got me a sick ass gas powered one. It was a 57 chevy all done up. the little thing hualed ass until some asshole ran it over and killed a little kids joy. Needless to say my pops chased after guy didnt catch him though. Which was good since my pops would have beat the shit outta him.. that was the first and last RC car i ever had..

good stuff all around. i use to think that it would be dope to steer next to an r/c car on the streets while in the passenger seat of someones ride.

I always liked the r/c cares coming up but i never could afford one, then I got a bit older and would take the motors outta the electric ones and build a tattoo machine to tattoo my friends.

 

I'll probably never own one in my days but I do think they can be cool.

This is wild. I didn't know you could buy jets. Seems like it would be difficult to control/keep track of.

I once knew this cat who would do Hella meth for weeks on end. He was always tinkering around with things. Used to do the illest bonsai trees. Insane tile and mosaic work. He also geeked out on his RC cars all fucking day and night. He had some expensive and really fast ones. I drove a few of them right the fuck into the curb at 40+ mph.

 

Fascinating ya'?
