nikko made the raider and also the sears lobo flash. they also have variations of the same vehicle by at least one other name i saw in one guys collection overseas on youtube. trying to find one since it was my favorite r/c car growing up.

i had a chance to get one minus controller a few months ago and stupidly i talked myself out of it. since i can easily find a nikko digital proportional controller on ebay or even use a hobby controller but for nostalgic purposes i would rather have the square nikko tx i should have just gotten it since it only went for like 20 dollars.

finally a raider on its way! so happy to finally get one. Saw the listing for one for 77.77 starting bid on ebay and then half an hour later saw one for starting bid $5 so i e-mailed the guy and talked him into putting a buy it now for 35. being untested due to the inaccessability of a battery pack i thought that was more than generous for one in that condition and he revised it and put a buy it now so i bought it. could have probably saved some money and waited for the auction to play out naturally but i'd rather pay 20 more and get it a week earlier, plus guaranteeing me i will get it. I still can't believe i got that new rs wild cougar for 30 off ebay but i guess i can thank my mom for not buying me tycos. those tycos can get up there and I would know since i've bought a few and sold them on ebay. super excited to be getting my old cars back together!

I'm tempted to put the bid on the one but all said and done that's 97.77 and I see a rusted screw and the thing is dirty. How much did you pay for your nib one? I know due to the condition the one on ebay is not going to be in a collection but I want ones to run and it looks like its in the condition of my old one before I threw it away except for the one on ebay has tire spikes left. I used to wrap rubber bands around the tires for traction of my old one.

anyone have this nikko in their collection?
Too new for me.
But it does look to be built on the same chassis Nikko/radio shack used on a lot of the 9.6 buggies. I do have a few of em.
Not as powerful as the 540/7.2 nikko stuff, but still high quality.
I did have a Nikko with tracks when I was a kid. There are awsome, fast and powerful. I remeber driving it on top of the snow, would fly!

There were alot of 9.6v buggies that were slow back in the day but these and the flashbacks were actually some of nikkos fastest rc cars. Im about positive the flashback is faster than the iron eagle.

One of the rare but really fast trucks is the nikko road thunder. It was the same as the tacoma with a lexan body but it had a 2 speed and better motor. I think it was one of their very fastest cars or trucks. Im gonna radar it too

Its just that they are soo rare and anybody who had one or wanted one they are a big deal to. I remember one of my brothers friends had one when i was a kid and i remember it being really fast so i had to have one
