Tyco Rip Tide
« on: November 25, 2011, 03:38:49 »
Picked this up the other day.  Always wanted one when I was a kid, but we lived in Wyoming so there wasn't any water around to drive it in lol. So all these year later I finally got one. I'm in Iowa now & there's plenty o little ponds and lakes to drive it in. Pretty zippy lil boat for being 18 years old.

there a good bit faster since they have the twin motors and pretty much the same weight,,,they both are quicker than you would think and easy to crash if your not in a nice size pool or lake lol you definitely need a good bit of running room,but they are great great fun and come back to you when they get out of range.

Yeah those are bad ass. I always wanted the Miller Highlife one. I imagine if i find one of those its gonna be spendy. I was lucky enough to pick up the Riptide for $10.
