help me figure this out
« on: January 05, 2011, 15:28:27 »
ok so about 10 years ago or so i had this rc vehicle. i believe it was tyco but i could be wrong. but it had tank treads on it and 4 wheels on each side. driving forward it would lay down flat for driving. but if you drove it in reverse 2 of the 4 wheels on each sode would stand up above the other 2 making the treads form a square pattern. i cant for the life of me remember what it was called or even find any info about it online. does anyone have any idea what this is?

well, change of plans on the bandit traxx, it is going to be undone, im gonna make a decent looking red fast traxx truck and put it on ebay most likeley, i need the bandit body for the brushless bandit with hobby suspension project, i plan to get that started soon as i thin out some of the tyco heard. i do have the yellow one i wont be using tho.

iam also doing the shock mod on the one black bandit in the pics i posted the other day and it will most likeley be for sale also, but iam still back and forth on that deal.


looks like i got a rebound and tantrum in the box coming soon too.

here
starting from the back left.

ROW 1--Tyco yellow fast traxx(maximum heat), then Nikko road shredder- those were in boxes
ROW 2--Tyco Super fast traxx, tyco black fast traxx truck, Nikko centipede
ROW 3-- Tyco redish fast traxx(maximum heat), tyco redish fast traxx, Tyco redish truck traxx, Tyco half traxx(the green one), tyco ridish mini traxx
ROW 4-- 2 Tyco yellow fast traxx, tyco yellow fast traxx truck(there are two more yellow truck ones, one has red and yellow flames, other has pink lighting bolts), tyco yellow mini traxx.

Maximum heat means that they are newer than the others they were a re-release around 96 i believe.
