of snap you are thinking about touching m traxx collection! haha the orange mini traxx has no remote so i dont know what its like its just for show. the yellow one in the box is in nice condition mini scuffs but i think it has paper work, runs nice.

parts/project lambo. i've been piecing it together, the tires aren't original, causing them to rub the body, and the steering doesn't straiten, so it needs to bee cleaned or a new servo. there are some other minor part changes too

parts eliminators. both rears are stripped but the one doesn't have an original rear its a bandit/hopper rear. i know the circut board works on one, the other i don't know the wires are all pulled and need resoldered.  there are three extra 49mhs eliminator body one that is bad, one that needs cleaned and a nice one the is lacking the eliminator sticker across the hood and the 9.6v turbo on the roof.

yeah i did forget that little porche haha i had just gotten it that day. i've never had a 6v car that impresses me. but the mini eliminator is sweet haha for indoors, but i want a 6v that will beast it up outside

Yeah I was just curious if any of them were anything I could use.


After driving both the stock outlaws last night I think I had more fun with them than any other tyco lately. Since they weigh nothing they can be as fast as 9.6v cars with just a speed control upgrade

Actually with 7.2v and the conversion it already competes with the 9.6v cars. Im gonna race them head to head to see how well it really does against them. If I ran a 7.4v lipo im sure it would be a good bit faster than any 9.6v tyco but I would have to test it first.

If right now I wanted to try to beat every 9.6v tyco made with the outlaw I would take my mamba speed control out of the off-roader and the 7.4v lipo and install them in the outlaw. It would almost definitely be much faster.

The off-roaders have a 79 f150 body and the wild cougars have a very similar style old ford body resembling one from the mid 80's. I got the off-roader the same year my brother got the wild cougar for xmas in 1992.


Yeah the ram is made to look like the 97 SS/T trucks one of my favorite new brights

Haha I wish I had a few more wild cougars cause I would modify one if I had an extra. One is new in box and the other is my stock drivers. The next would be a dual mod motor hobby setup.

Yeah I have a landshark which is the same as the road shredder just different body. They are both similar to the wild cougar except it doesnt have the fake shocks up front and has a completely different radio system. The wild cougar as actually a bit faster and has soo much more control with its pistol grip control. It drifts awesome on woods floors. The road shredder/landshark would be a good car for a hobby conversion.

The XJ220 takes 8 aa batteries, really needs a 9.6v conversion
