Best $50 I've ever spent! It has remote keyless, head/taillights and lit gauges, a shifter that actually clicks through gears, trunk, doors, and hood, and door handles on the side that actually function. When you turn the car, the steering wheel inside the vehicle actually spins.

1:6 scale, so its a monster, and fast enough to do some doughnuts but not so fast that I'd destroy it.

I traded in (exchanged) a 23mph Ferrari F430 I bought the night before ($70) that was screaming fast but impossible to handle. I slammed it into a brick wall and the transaxle started making an awful clicking sound. It had a limited slip diff though!

The Camaro was discontinued, so there's only a couple left in the St Louis area. The long drive to find a new one was totally worth it.

I want to find a bigger motor to put in there, and maybe a dark-skinned action figure to go in the driver's seat. Maybe a Kelly Clarkson doll in the passenger side as well. :D

I feel like I'm 12. Good times.

Jesda, did you ever consider getting into those Traxxas things? I can't remember if that's the right name or not, but they're nitro powered off road remote control cars and trucks. $500-$600 to get started plus a ton of add on parts.

I'm not quite ready for hobby level stuff just yet. I just wrecked my first Ferrari after all. :D

I have to say Jesda I never had you flagged as a Camaro kinda guy. But hey, what if they made a remote controlled 1st Q45 or 93 STS? Wouldn't THAT kick ass?!

I would pay $250 for either one!

I've never see a red (rally red I believe is the name) 69 camaro with black racing stripes. Interesting choice :thumbsup:

I'll have to pull out my highly customized T-maxx....over 1300.00 in add on parts and aftermarket parts...plus I have a slew of Micro-rs4'S. anyone want to chat about RC cars just give me yell....I have literally spent thousands upon thousands on them.

Man, I just discovered tonight it has real reverse lights -and- working turn signals! On RS's web site apparently some people said they installed real speakers in the dash and door panels and an FM radio to have the car play music off their iPods. There's plenty of room in the trunk for a baby sub. :D

I'm just a toy lover who plays with stuff until it breaks, but I'm amazed by the guys who do this stuff as a hobby, with nitro engines and complex suspensions. As pinball exemplifies, it gets expensive!

where did you get it from Jesda....I'd be interested in the other ones and what Icould do to get it up to speed. My Truck on the other thread can keep up in highway traffic. Fastest its been was 57 MPH...tranked on an actual highway at 3AM right beside my friends car with Electronic dash.
