I just sold mine and I did it with a Traxxas T-Maxx truck and an aftermarket body. I don't have photos on this computer (I'm not as cool as Barry).
Real chick with two Defenders, just trying to keep up with Barry ya know!

Had the Frog - always wanted the Avante or a Bruiser. Went through 2 bodies, several motors, lots of tires, etc. Found the frame a couple years back in my Grandmother's garage. Man I love this stuff!

Grasshopper was the first. Got it at Highway Hobby in Ramsey NJ.
Fox second
Wild Willy
Kyosho Puegot - front wheel drive
Kyosho Montero - Gas - was awesome but impossible to get to go
RC10
Boomerang that somehow ended being changed into a hotshot 2
Kyosho Optima with a belt drive

A few years ago I got a Tamiya Subaru WRX and drove it to death.
I also bought a hornet rerelease and through in a vintage sprint motor to keep it old school.

If I had unlimted cash I would buy a a bunch of vintage ones off ebay and start building.

Badgerman also has a bunch I think

I have a Tamiya 1/10 Pajero 4wd electric. It's great to use on my dogs and I thought about covering it with a cover that looks like a sheep. The other part of my collection is 1/16 R/C tanks. 1 Tiger, 1 Panzer III, 1 Panzer III Sturmgeschutz, 1 Panzer IV and a Panzer IV Sturmgeschutz.

My dog hates the RC cars. I would love to have a remote control sheep. Begin the jokes please.

Ooh, the 1/16 armor, so cool. I've been dieing to get some of these for years, but never had the time to justify pulling the trigger.

Incidentally, I ran into a guy who described you as "my best friend" in the parking lot at West Point as I was loading my 110 for the trip to ECR. He said his best friend made tops for these things up on the cape. I said "Badger?" and he mentioned you used to live in the West Point area. Off topic, but amusing.

I lived in Nyack, NY up till 1986 and then moved up to Orange County till the end of 1987. Been on Cape Cod ever since. That's a funny story!

I also forgot to mention that I have a Tamiya RC 1/16 Tiger tank to build.
