Nice collection. Would you mind putting some names to go with the photos? I'm not sure what all of these are.

Nice, I forgot about the  Remco Sprint cars.    They also came in blue, right?    How many batteries does it take?  Can you post  a closeup picture?

This is the only one I've ever seen. I can't even find any mention of them online anywhere. I'd like to see a blue one.  It takes 8 AA & a 9V for the transmitter.

The chassis has Nikko written all over it.     I think The Federated Group use to sell them in the 80's  ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_g-JIfV3sg&feature=related ).

Here are pictures of a blue one new in the box:






How fast is yours? Do you have the upper wing for it?

Yeah, these  Remco  RC cars are rare.  I think Remco got out of the RC business shortly after.       So how fast is your sprint car compared to the 9.6V tyco cars?

Its fairly quick, about as fast an Aero Turbo Hopper. I use Energiser 2500mah rechargables which give alot more boost than regular batteries. Compared to a 9.6V tho, My Dune Devils and Blaster will dust it in a heartbeat.  Hey can you post a pic of the gear selector on the back of yours? I think mine is missing a knob.

I actually don't have that RemCo  sprint car, but I do have Nikko's  which seem to have the exact same chassis. If you post a picture of your gear selector, I can tell you if it looks like my Nikko.
