Okay, so cars don't fly. They do catch a little air from time to time.
I started with an Associated RC-10. That was fun, but I really didn't like the short run times. Recently, I bought an Associated RC-18T. What a blast. The four wheel drive is fantastic and the run times are way above my old RC-10. I didn't like the AM radio that the car came with, so I upgraded to a synthesized FM radio. I have replaced the steering servo to get rid of some steering slop. Finally, I upgraded to a brushless motor. Now the RC-18 is really fun.
