yea i was pretty dirty but cleaned up nice besides the wheels being white they kinda had dirt stains, but it came out nice, im going to have my buddy look at the remote, it has the same motors as the nikkos, just the rame is over all built kinda diff, i like driving the nikko traxx ones better, and some have reg remotes with a fwd, bwk, and left and right steering, and is more fun than the tank steering remotes, ill try and post a pic of it then

cool. i'm sure it's nothing big maybe just a little part that makes contact i guess a circuit. my brother is a scientist and builds circuit boards on rockets so he said rc car boards are easy so he's going to teach me how to rebuild them too which will be nice so if i find a car that doesn't work i could always rebuild or repair the  board and make it live again.

there for the longest time i was looking on ebay for the wild cougar. never could find one nor could find anything on yahoo searches about it. then i saw that one on ebay but was too beat up for my wife to okay it plus wasn't tested. i stil remember the day my brother's friend gave me his. it was in mind condition since he was a gamer not an rc driver but i put some use on it especially since at that time i had 6 9.6v packs and 6 chargers so i used to run that thing for hours. why couldn't i have had handy parents who could solder. the paperclip wedged in with a rubber band only can work for so long...

they said they may ship depending on how much it costs. yeah i'm interested in the buggy too but i'll see what they want for it and shipping and stuff.

i talked to his wife, they want 200 and she said her husband may ship. I'm trying to see if she will split the group and just sell me the mini blaster. 200 to me doesn't sound too bad but tack another 50 on for shipping plus the risk that they may just take the money and never send the stuff i dunno if my wife will go for that. i'm trying to convince her to put them on ebay with a buy it now 200, so then there is some form of official contract between us.
