it for me, as my 21st Birthday present.
-My 2nd was Bat Man, kinda happened onto it at an ,"Ollies",

itself, so they let me have it for $20

heres the one i seen, but im not sure if its twin or not
Title: Re: TYCO RC list, very basic. Please add more information.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 02, 2011, 16:41:48
some of them were different but for most like the, lamborghini and the 348 the way to tell if its a twin turbo is to look for the side bumpers in front of the rear wheels, a wider wheel base and a short front bumper. That one appears to be a twin turbo all tho it doesnt have the side bumper, i dont think any of the f40s did or the porsche

I wish I didnt see that sell for just $41.00, thats a total steal

Hello all, this is my first post, Im thrilled to find a forum on Tyco RCs.  One thing I wanted to bring up for this list is that Tyco made a "Jackknife" and "Jacknife".  The Jackknife (2 Ks) is a semi truck with a trailer.  The Jacknife is a car that has a transforming wing.

I've been putting together info on Tyco RCs to help me keep track of things, and since finding this site I've added the info from this list and the dealer catalogs.  It's in an excel file, and I wasn't sure of the best way to share it on here, so I uploaded it to a wordpress site.  Please hit me up if you can find any errors or have something to add.  It's a work in progress, but I'm at the point where outside help would be really handy, lol.  ;D

Here's the link.  Sorry for the ugly layout, I wasn't worried about aesthetics...

That looks very similar to a gold one that I found in a catalog from 1989. 9.6V Turbo Indys; Stock No. 2616-27; Scale 1/18. There's not much info about them in the catalog, but here's what the page lists in the bullet points:

Hey, I found that exact model in the Spring 1988 catalog, page 28. Indy Turbos - The Ultimate Racing Machines... with real Turbo Power.

"Real championship Indy Racers pack Turbo charged engines for blasts of power you control. Down to every detail, Michael Andretti's Kraco car, Al Unser, Jr's Domino's Pizza car, Rick Mear's Pennzoil and Danny Sullivan's Miller American car are authentic replicas of today's Indy winners. And they're Turbo powered!"

Under the #4 Miller car it says Stock No. 2416-27 (looks like the Pennzoil car was planned as the opponent as it is #2416-49).
Cube: 3.0
Weight: 13lbs
Package Size: 7" x 5 1/2" x 16 1/8"
