I had the Tamiya stuff (Lunch Box, Blackfoot, some Willys jeep I can't remember the name of) back in the 80's, whole bunch of us would tear around parking lots playing demo derby, which almost always degenerated into "attack the operator's ankles". Did some RC tractor pulling with the Lunch Box and Blackfoot. I would take the leftover stock parts and build another car to beat on, favorite trick was putting a huge heat sink on the stock motor, and run 4 batteries. 28.8 volts would really get the car screaming, one of my junkers hit close to 50mph on radar. (One of my buddies had a radar gun for baseball)

Got into nitro, but never really got into modding- by that time I was married and didn't have as much fun money.

I have gone through Traxxas, Axial and now I have a Mugen MBX6 1/8 buggy. They are all fun. I am really big into bashing and the Mugen is by far the strongest I have owned out of the box. Traxxas is great as anentry level RC and you can get parts at just about any RC shop.

The Mugen right after I got it:

It was called the Wild Willy. They actually have a Wild Willy 2 that came out not that long ago.

Tamiya has reissued allot of there older models with the newer technology.

Don't have to do much. Actually your slash will pull wheelies all day long with the Traxxas VXL system and a good lipo battery.

Very nice buggy you have there and some sweet hang time !
Mugen makes a killer race truggy. But then again you get what you pay for and Mugen models are expensive !!

Here are a couple videos of mine.
