Tyco Rampage. New member first post
« on: May 04, 2012, 11:14:36 »
Hello i was wondering if anyone could help me. I have recently came across and now own "Tyco Rampage" Rc car 9.6v Turbo for free, boxed with all the bits. (not yet tried and tested but soon will find out) Upon searching the web ive not really come up with any info about it. None are listed on Ebay but i did however stumble upon this forum, I joined and searched for the words Tyco Rampage and noticed it only came up in three posts. Any information about this car would be great. I honestly want to sell it and will be listing it for sell assuming its worth selling ?? Please reply

Many thanks from Jon.

I did notice the lights are missing off the roof. Any info you are able to give would be great.
Do people collect this model ?
Is it worth selling ?

Obviously i need to get a battery for the controller to test it out. There is a battery in the car, Car switches on and red light comes on. also has a plug in wall charger....

looks to be a scorcher chassis with an eliminator body on it kinda.  not sure on its value since we didnt get em here.  hang on to it, definately an oddball.

Any info regarding how rare this is ? Can anyone give a rough price guide as to what it may be worth ? Its probably not something i would hang onto myself as i would rather it go to someone who will appreciate it more than me.......

That thing is pretty sweet looking Im not sure if Uk has a big market like we do.
you can also set special shipping options on ebay. you can ship to USA for an extra shipping fee.

The thing is we can't get lucky charms here in the UK so i might swap it for 20 boxes of that.... *Jokes...... Ok but the shipping cost may be just as much as someone is willing to pay for the car itself.
