Yeah just gotta wait on the GPS to get here next week. I actually ran about 9 cars last night on 11.1v lipo Nikko's/Tyco's and they all hauled ass. I'm gonna test them stock and on 11.1v. I was running a bandit on 11.1v and it would pull wheelies from a rolling start haha

When I was about 14 or 15 years old I had a Tyco rc car. It was made in the mid 90s. I know everyone had one.lol Well this one was special, and I have not been able to find it anywhere. There are no pics online, I can't even remember what it was called. Bear with me while I try and explain what it looked like. First off it was very long and the color was red. It had 2 very skinny front wheels with suspension, and had a Huge single track/trax, on the rear. It looked somewhat like a snowmobile but wasn't one! Im sure it was made by Tyco. If anyone knows what it was called or have a picture they want to share it would be amazing! Thanks

I am a big Tyco Turbo train collector and does anybody know what Tyco Catalog This Chessie Turbo train set was in? I think it was a 1990 Tyco dealer catalog. Can anybody provide me with a high quality scan if they find one? You can send an image to my email at grjd01@windstream.net.

Hi onebadbug, I have some catalogs from that time, but they are currently packed up. I'll try to get to them next month so I can look through them for those images.
