Post by: Rah7777777 on September 10, 2010, 00:42:02
No pics right now......but I have.....drum roll please

-Traxxas 1/16 e-revo (brushless and lipo batts)
-Traxxas 1/10 rustler (brushless with full 1/10 revo suspension and giant wheels)
-Tamiya 1/18 mini-Frog (upgraded brushed motor)
-Tyco Super fast traxx (no treads tho)
-Tyco yellow fast traxx (NIB)
-Tyco yellow fast traxx (almost new in box)
-Tyco "evil traxx" project build (see twin axle thread)
-Tyco scorcher (played with, no box)
-Tyco Target formula car (NIB)
-Tyco 1988 Pennzoil Indy Turbo (NIB)
-Tyco nitro dozer (NIB)
-Tyco nitro dozer (played with, no box)


the one I know I'll never get rid of is the 1988 Tyco Indy Turbo (pennzoil) car.
My earliest memory or playing with R/C cars is with a car just like this one.

I remember Christmas morning when I was probably 6 years old, my folks bought me this one. It had the little fake cones and me and pops hit up the local K Mart parking lot after the batts charged! Loved it!

Although, my wife hates me "wasting" money on this stuff, she doesnt realize I want to keep it all for our kids.
I want to show my kids what I had and loved as a kid. Since she is prego now with our first, its gonna be a while before they see or even play with any of them   ;D

Post by: SavedONE on September 21, 2010, 07:23:26
-thanks scorcher, I've never heard of it, but it looks cool.  Did any of you guys ever see the pull-back & release Tyco Fast Traxx toy?  I had one when I was just starting high school, (about 16-17 years ago).  It was spot on w/the Neon Green fast traxx car,(I never saw another after it).  We jumped cardboard ramps w/it :)
-Also, I had a Micro (still full-function) Rebound.  Not based on the Super Rebound w/the stunt arm, but the orig., it was red & blue, (pretty sure, been a long time).  It would do the flips, & had good power (charged from the controller, I think runtime was around 3 min. (but that depended, of course, what you were doing w/it).  The trick that Tyco used to allow it to flip, was the tires.  2 were very hard compound, & 2 were very soft.  Since I'm handicapped, my friend, Mike, (also a RC nut), visits me, & takes time out of his scedule, etc., so I gave it to him.  I wish Tyco would have done a Fast Traxx in that small scale, I was shocked when I first came here & saw a Mini Fast Traxx,& not F/F!? :o
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on September 21, 2010, 07:55:57
Would you be able to make the mini traxx fulfunction? And yeah that little rebound was on eBay.
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: SavedONE on September 21, 2010, 08:15:10
-maybe, now that you mention it, w/the Micro Rebound elects., I think it may try yo spin out of the tracks when turning tho.  All we ever did w/it, was pull back & let it go.  A good obstacle for it, (& other small vechicles, RC or not), was a phone book, layed out on the floor opened up to the middle.

-the Micro Fast Traxx doesn't use any batteries, it's a pull back (internal wind-up), setup, no AA's, the Micro Rebound is about the same size tho, so in theory, w/enough skill, a RC Micro Fast Traxx is possible.  the Micro rebound charges from its controller, it must have a watch battery in it, etc.

Post by: czstycor/c on September 21, 2010, 22:16:13
Savedone---well, i'm saying i have a mini traxx, not a micro that is simple function, that should be made full function.


Schorcher- didn't you have the Edge Mutator?  where is that?
so i'm thinking you should give me one of those little kitts  ;D
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: SavedONE on September 21, 2010, 23:32:23
-czstycor/c, I agree, I first saw that on the JANG's forum, & I figured that it'd be F/F, but nope.  I want to get one to tinker with, it'd look great next to my super fast traxx!!!
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on September 21, 2010, 23:50:13
well, i have both versions of the mini traxx as you see if you look at my collection. too bad right after i got them there was one on ebay. i would let someone tinker with the one mini because i'm lacking the remote but i would want it back haha, even though the other is mib.

I have to admit though, this is my favorite basher car! Brushless on Lipo's, This thing will run. Although my bigger Traxxas will probably beat it with the brushless on  its liFe battery.

Post by: czstycor/c on September 30, 2010, 11:51:32
i got it for 60$. the roll cage is broken, but i'll J.B. weld that I was thinking it would be cool to get a yellow fast traxx truck body and put it on the wild thing, since the inside of the wheels are that same color, make a yellow bandit  ;D

Post by: performerrpm on October 02, 2010, 04:59:42
started to buy one of those wild things, i usually dont like the colored cars like that but those ones look good, have you compared its speed to that of the 4x4 bandit? the wild thing should be the same speed as a regular bandit

wow so what is the fastest, and your favorite?

that colorful truck in the back near the boxes looks cool, what is that?
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: turbobandit on November 30, 2010, 21:29:30
My favorite is the Bandits, the fastest is prolly between the Red Arrow/Black Wolf/Turbo Thruster. And the colorful truck is a RadioShack Fierce Warrior which is the same truck as the original Nikko Scorpion.
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on November 30, 2010, 22:19:16
cool, never seen a red arrow or the other two in action.

Post by: turbobandit on November 30, 2010, 22:24:53
Whats funny is that if you look close at the fastlane sand ripper (bought from toysrus) this year, its the exact same buggy as the Black Wolf that was purchased in 1991. Kinda funny they are reproducing it 19yrs later.

Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: turbobandit on December 01, 2010, 10:51:37
Those were the same bandits, i have 3 bandits in boxes. LOL i wish i had more! I like collecting the Radioshack/Nikko stuff cuz they usually dont go for very much on ebay and you get more car for your money.
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on December 01, 2010, 13:45:24
i have one of the original nikko scorpions, the yellow one i think it was the first versoin, have you seen that black phantom truck by radio shack on ebay? same truck as the scorpion 2 but radio shacks version, i had both versions when i was a kid and the black phantom seam to have more balls than the scorpion 2,


the 7.2 scorpion really isnt much faster than the 9.6 version but i guess it gets around in the grass

now id don't feel special, b/c you have the 4x4 bandit new in box!!! i hove both the red and blue, but no box. what do they actually call the the 4x4?

and i thought my collection was big, but i guess that is why you are the king.
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 01, 2011, 23:25:32
The name of the truck is the "4WD TURBO RACING PICKUP" and it was made in 1988 only. I actually still have the original charger and batteries and they still hold full charge lol, no corrosion whatsoever! Im kinda jealous, youve got the red one. I saw one on ebay a while back and forgot to watch the auction end so I missed it. Ive had this one for about 5 years and its the only one new in box ive ever seen.  Heres a better view of the box

that is odd that is the name taiyo gave it normally tyco changes it a little.
preformerpm saw one early last year in box i believe.mine are both mint and havn't been run reallt at all, but i don't have the batteries and charger. and i had to get a remote and make a battery door for my blue one. red one had everything
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 01, 2011, 23:48:33
Yeah this was before tyco got involved in everything. Literally right after this generation of cars Tyco named everything when they went from AA's to using 9.6v packs and the early 90's graphics on their boxes. I only see these trucks come along every 2 or 3 years. Ive been watching auctions like a hawk and if I happen to see another red one I wont be able to pass it up
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 01, 2011, 23:58:13
yeah i got my blue one this summer and the red one a few weeks ago. i am just shocked to see the box, and that makes sense the AA cars all have taiyo distinctly on the box, with little flair like the 9.6v models


p.s. check you personal messages.

Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 02, 2011, 00:08:16
From everything I know I believe this is the rarest truck tyco ever made right behind the impossible to find 2nd gen twin turbo lamborghini. Wish there were more of them because I would totally be installing a brushless setup in one if I could get ahold of them easier

bandit king, arent you the one in the archives with pics of the red bandit with hobby font shocks? if so what parts did you use?



cz, when i seen this post, i seen a small needle attempting to burst my bandit bubble, when i seen the 4x4 with box, i actually heard yours deflating
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on January 02, 2011, 03:41:21
at this point, iam thinking maybee i should have bought the one the first part of last year of those 4x4s, and definateley should have kept a shushed mouth on that red on cz picked up, now i may have to be on the search for one

Post by: czstycor/c on January 02, 2011, 08:47:36
haha, i just want a twin lambo that runs well.  :-[ i can't seem to get one.

and i believe you are wrong i would say the harley davidsin bandit the did in 1993 i believe is the rarest. schorcher is the only one with one. but then these are.

preform- sadly you are right but i dont think it completely deflated, just got alot! smaller. cause i do still have both haha i got to stay possitive somehow!

Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 02, 2011, 11:43:33
yeah that was my red bandit that I used team associated rcmt18 parts to convert the suspension over to. I will post some pics here in a bit. As far as rarity goes ive watched the auctions almost every single week for the last 9 years. Heres how many ive seen on ebay in that time:

0- 2nd gen twin turbo lamborghinis

10- 4WD turbo racing pickups

13- 9.6v harley davidson pickups


There were only a handful of the of the Lamborghinis made and just enough for the stores to have them from summer to christmas. The 4wd turbo racing pickup was common for back in the day and was made for a whole year. The harley truck was a limited production rc too but the reason ive probably seen more of them than the 4wd turbo racing pickup is because it has 5 years on the 4wd and that 5 years of them getting broken, lost and thrown away by people who dont know what they have. The first gen twin turbo lambo is still very common but all time most rare, lowest production and hardest to find Tyco would definitely be the 2nd gen twin turbo with the big square remote.

I still remember when I was about 7 walking into toys r us and seeing the outlaw trucks next to the harley trucks. I think the harley was selling for $69.00 and the outlaw was $49.00. I couldnt remember if they were on sale at the time but they were released as soon as they stopped making the bandit. The Harley was supposed to be the next generation of bandit and ended up being the last.
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 02, 2011, 12:36:41
and you sure you not including min harley pick ups, cause ive seen at least three of those in the last year and i got one of them.
now after seeing your 4x4 that make 4 complete ones i've seen plus one that is was just the body being put on a hobby grade chassis.

but i haven't seen any of the 2nd generation lambos either. now i want one.

would you sell an outlaw truck by any chance?
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 02, 2011, 13:03:43
Ive seen dozens of the mini harley trucks over the years just never thought to buy one. About half of the 9.6v harley trucks ive seen were in the box.

I still wanna kick myself for returning my 2nd gen twin turbo lambo just cause of the wing. Its the only one ive seen since 1998 and probably one of the last ill ever see.

I got your message about the outlaw last night but it logged me out as i sent the reply. I have a mint red outlaw that I might consider selling just need to think of whats fair/what i wanna let it go for. Im gonna dig them out of the rc closet today so i can get new pictures of everything
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 02, 2011, 13:38:34
sweet! my brother is the reason i got back into this stuff, i wanted to have something to do with him. and the red is the one he likes. but i just wish it would be a 9.6v with the boost.

i got my brother a mint scorcher for christmas, and i think he was kinda dissapointed cause i think he thought it was going to be the outlaw even though he wanted a scorcher

no gunna lie i'm excited to see your collection!
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 02, 2011, 13:48:52
Ive been into tycos since I was 5 and my neighbors got their bandits, which i own those very ones now. I had lambos, mutators and all kinds growing up and after making some rediculous hobby cars I still prefer my old tyco and radio shack cars. Whats cool is my fiancee totally supports me collecting and doing anything with rc cars so i dont see it slowing down anytime soon.

Im gonna post a ton of pics today since my ive closed the shop for the weekend. I just think its cool to see there are people out there who have the same interest in these cars so id love to share the collection
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 02, 2011, 14:06:56
i would love to come see those car you got in your shop!! haha, my first real rc is my super fast traxx. i played with that thing like crazy. i ramped it OOOOOPPPSSSS, don't do that!!! haha my dad had to fix it i broke the female ends of the shocks, and a tread, so we had to order parts for it, and its funny cause my mom bought it at a boscov's clearance tent sale. then waited years to give it to me till i was 9. i think its cool that it came out the same year i was born 92. i will say the super fast traxx seems more solidly built than any other one i have.

Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 02, 2011, 15:20:41
I will probably use aluminum tubing and bend them to match and it will have to be made out of 2 peices. Oh heres a 1/10 version of the 4wd truck if there was one . This is a tamiya f-150 prerunner 4wd all stock and ran once. Yes that is a tire under the back i was using it to support the extra weight and level the truck

Post by: performerrpm on January 02, 2011, 15:25:11
how fast is that 4x4 nissan-the 1/10th? i like that
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 02, 2011, 15:28:55
Its about 20mph as is sits bone stock. I have built one up to do over 40mph and with the electronics i have to put in it it could do over 70mph with the right gearing.
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 02, 2011, 15:32:13
20mph. that really isn't that fast considering a hopper does 16 supposedly
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on January 02, 2011, 15:32:35
i wouldnt mind having one of those, accorse id want 40 mph at least
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on January 02, 2011, 15:33:36
thats a lil faster than the twin lambos/hoppers isnt it do they do like 19?
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on January 02, 2011, 15:34:52
or wait its 16 for the lambos/hoppers? couldnt remember.


still about 8 mph faster than its smaller counterparts-bandit and 4x4
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 02, 2011, 15:36:54
yeah like 19.5ish i think. so the top end tycos are bottom end hobby grade. speed accourse the gears and stuff are sub par
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 02, 2011, 15:39:08

 the turbo hopper does 27 km/h asuming the bandit is the same. that is 16.8 mph!

the i believe in tyco it would be the super hopper 4wd(correct me if i'm wrong please) does 25 km/h which is 15.5 mph!

the twin turbo aero hopper does 31 km/h which is 19.3 mph!

the grabber 4wd( forget what it is in tyco's line) does 20 km/h which is 12.4 mph!

the 4x4 Bandit does 24 km/h which is 14.9 mph!
they call it a racing pick up 4wd

there you go those i believe were all the speeds!!


there are the actual speeds!!
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on January 02, 2011, 15:42:10
twin lambo on ebay now


Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 02, 2011, 15:43:03
The fastest tyco ever made was in this order

1 2nd gen twin turbo 17+

2 1st gen twin turbo 16

3 hopper/blaster 15-16

4 eliminator then bandit 15

The twin turbo hoppers were basically the same as a 4wd turbo racing pickup and never were able to do 19mph
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on January 02, 2011, 15:45:04
now is that the 4x4 hopper compared to the 4x4 trucks or is it the twin aero hopper compared to the 4x4 trucks.


i kinda figured the hopper/blasters and bandits were pretty much the same speed
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 02, 2011, 15:45:58
People have tried to guess the speeds on these for years but ive owned every single one of them and have raced most together at some point. Speeds I have are not only drawn from research but using an accurate radar
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 02, 2011, 15:47:45
now the speeds i got were strait from taiyo so they probably rated them higher than they were, and the twin hopper is way faster than the 4x4 bandit. this one is the one we mean. not the twin 4wd hopper

bottom shelf two spoilers

Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 02, 2011, 15:53:10
haha, i wish it would run straight!!!!!!!!! then i could see how fast it is. cause it does turn really fast!!
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 02, 2011, 15:58:45
The twin turbo hopper has hotter motors and a much better speed control to give the extra output

To make it easier heres what runs on the same chassis and motor

1  17mph+
2nd gen twin turbo lambo

2 16mph
twin turbo lambo 89
twin turbo 348
twin turbo f40
twin turbo 348
twin turbo dominos indy car

3 16mph
 bigger motor
wild thing hopper
hopper shocker
blaster
eliminator

4 16mph
twin turbo hopper

5 15mph
bandit
heads up hopper

4 - 14mph+ very similar driveline to twin turbo hopper
4wd turbo racing pickup
super turbo 4wd hopper
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on January 02, 2011, 16:04:13
i couldnt tell any difference in motor sizes between the bandit/eliminator, i thought the speed increase was from gearing and extra power to the motor in the eliminator. ive used either one in both eliminators and bandits



i have a blaster coming but aside from that ive never had any of the others except a parts twin aero hopper
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 02, 2011, 16:06:12
yeah it is fast, so i could use the sevvo out of my parts eliminator to fix the steering or just the pastic peices.
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 02, 2011, 16:15:52
the can was the same on the eliminator but the bandit was made in 1991 then in 1993 when the eliminater came out they gave it a hotter motor, hences why on the box it said, "Tycos fastest truck ever!" in a orange tag
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on January 02, 2011, 16:18:39
ahh, i c. yes i think it said 25% faster


still but the eliminater had to put more power out to the hotter motor too, because i put an eliminator rear diff with eliminator motor on a bandit and it didnt have near the get up as eith one of the bandits or eliminators i had that were untouched, must a been a combination of better motor and power
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 02, 2011, 16:21:37
yeah running the wrong speed control can actually slow it down and if somewhere in it you didnt make a good connection or used too much solder on the wires it would slow it down a ton
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on January 02, 2011, 16:25:20
so, a bandit rear gear diff lower gears than eliminator, along with eliminator motor and speed control should make for a faster than original bandit? with more wheelie power than either bandit or eliminator
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 02, 2011, 16:44:54
i will try it when my other eliminators come.

hmm i've never actually seen an eliminator in its box. ive seen a super bandit in box.

see the bandit fast traxx in there with new treads, thats my 3rd favorite after the 2 red bandits as for the regular fast traxx truck, its pretty nice but will need treads, ill probaly swap with one of the fast traxx i have coming this week.


and ya have to admit that eliminator looks good, it was like new when i bought it
Title: Re: Put your collection here.

Post by: performerrpm on January 02, 2011, 21:42:57
hers some of the red bandits, i took the one out of the box, i got this from turbobandit above which i got a great deal and am glad i bought it, however the other red bandit i bought off ebay and didnt know what to expect for 100 bucks, cztyco jus knew i was payin to much and mentioned alot of tlc........can ya tell which one should be back in the box?
Title: Re: Put your collection here.

last ones
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 02, 2011, 22:02:45
actually i can tell which sould be in the box. it is the one thaty doesn't have the yellow tyco flag! haha but you did a great job fixing that one up!

and WOW :o look how tight the treads are on the bandit traxx! it looks amazing!!! haha
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on January 02, 2011, 22:07:55
yes, those new treads made all the difference on the bandit traxx!!!!! it didnt look very good with the stretched ones.



yeah the one missing the flag is one from the box, but did you notice how nice the chrome is on the bumpers and roll bar on the other? it was ashame that bumper was broken off because other than that its like new, i plastic epoxied it back together which you can see in one of the pics, i was gonna put another bumper on but this ones chrome was to nice to throw out.


my other black bandit in the box had the same issue, when i got it the bumper was broke with nice chrome so i had to put another on, i need to figure out a way to get 3-4 bumpers rechromed
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 02, 2011, 22:12:30
yeah, well i don't have that problem sine i only have one with a chrome bumper.

p.s. you need to update your list of what your collection is.
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 03, 2011, 00:29:36
Sweet collection! You have now convinced me to change my focus on rc project hobby cars to tyco project cars. Heres what ive got in mind now:

1/10 scale 11.1v  turbo bandit

outlaw pickup full hobby car

python full hobby car

Wild thing hopper with full hobby setup

4.8v ferrari f40 converted to full brushless hobby car

Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on January 03, 2011, 06:43:26
i like the stickering of the older ones that say 9.6 turbo, i think they look better.

i guess that means both of the bandits that turbobandit has on ebay is 2nd issue, he has a red and a black one on now. 700 bucks for the red one, i dont know that its gonna sell but will be interesting to watch, in any case theres you a red one czstyc
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 03, 2011, 11:16:27
yeah i saw the red one. to rich for my blood.

haha now the king is going to do what i had planned for an outlaw. i'm going to want it :P
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on January 03, 2011, 14:46:26

Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: performerrpm on January 03, 2011, 15:03:11
i done spent 200 this week on the other tycos, soon as i read the 700 dollar price tag, my wallet slammed shut!lol


if i didnt already have 2 of each id probaly try to deal him for both ofem, he does have some nicely kept stuff
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 03, 2011, 15:06:55
oh so someone else will get it. he is selling the black one and mini to someone for 350, unless they don't pay today then i might get them.
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 03, 2011, 19:18:53
Im gonna think of a few cars to trade him for the red bandit. I had to ship it to him and remember having a hard time letting go of the box lol, i had it for 8 years. If one of you other guys get it ill tell you its mint. I only had it out of the box for a quick race against the other cars and for pictures. Its brand new in every way
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 03, 2011, 19:34:48
well he found out that preformer actually got the one you sold him and he is selling a different one, but i think he sold it b/c he ended the auction he said he needed the money to tune his street car
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: turbobandit on January 03, 2011, 21:50:55
Well i had a deal worked out on the two black bandits i had on ebay for 350, then the guy backed out and wanted a new one, so i listed a new one and he didnt wanna spend that kind of money, after a crap ton of 150 dollar offers on a brand new bandit i got mad and just took them off, but sumone did buy the mini bandit for the 100 dollar buy it now.  So i still have both bandits and i guess i will just keep them i dont think i will ever be able to part with them for such a small amount of money.

i just got my twin lambo, even with a dead battery this thing is cool, i had a regualr single last summer that sucked, you had to be going forward or backwards to turn it, and even on smoot floor it sucked, i didnt know the twins had a much better suspension and didnt know they had a servo til the other day.


i also got my other fast traxx that came with it that ive been saving the box for from the other traxx i bought, i wish i could always buy in this nice a condition
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 13, 2011, 14:11:28
pictures! haha i just got my incomplete super fast traxx, i don't think its been run ever. there are two small scuffs on the body fro it being moved around, and the bottom has very few scuffs, they aren't the regular scratches you know the straight ones down the bottom, so i think its from storage. but it is getting the wheel off one of my others and going in the box, because it is mint!!

is the fast traxx box you got a white box?

a nice one goes for over 200, only one nice one hasn't and it totaled 197. but the buyer didn't pay so i got it.
but i'd drop my price and trade if you got anything you would trade. i'll take picture of the one i'd let go once they are all here and i put them together the way i want

Post by: performerrpm on January 14, 2011, 13:13:33
pictures! haha i just got my incomplete super fast traxx, i don't think its been run ever. there are two small scuffs on the body fro it being moved around, and the bottom has very few scuffs, they aren't the regular scratches you know the straight ones down the bottom, so i think its from storage. but it is getting the wheel off one of my others and going in the box, because it is mint!!

is the fast traxx box you got a white box?

yeah its the white box, but in pretty good shape, and the fast traxx i got with the lambo is almost like new.

finally tried out the lambo, it was hard to tell how fast it really was because even though the tires are in great shape and all, they keep balloning and then the wheel spins inside the tires, its at least as fast as a bandit though, it slides all over the place even out in the road.

it takes off slow but i think thats the wheel spinning issue, you can see the rim spinning its jus not moving

my mutator came today way better than my taiyo version

Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 19, 2011, 12:19:25
Yeah that is the last and one of the best cars tyco ever made. The taiyo version is junk, only downside this version had was that they had clutches in the hubs that like to weaken over time and eventually just go out. If you can press the housing off and glue them they will be invincible. My original mutator from 96 did it and another one I bought for a driver did it so i got a 3rd one and it doesnt click unless im really pushing it. I think even my nib mutator clicked once.

Ahh the memories of blasting through deep water and mud, they have the best ground clearance for sand and mud runs.
Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: czstycor/c on January 19, 2011, 14:15:52
yes! my mutator can keep a close race with the super fast traxx off road.

I've been thinking about getting Vanessa's Lunchbox, or a some other kit, that I could build up with my son. My wife is encouraging me to get back into R/C cars anyway since it's something I can do with the kids more.

Post by: scorcher on February 11, 2011, 17:01:06
for somthing to build together with ur son if he is young the lunchbox would be great its simple to build the instructions are simple to follow get ur self the upgrade bearings too there cheap to buy and even if ur using a stock motor it will pop wheelies easy there great fun trucks

so i haven't been to active on here lately, since i haven't had my laptop so i figured i would let very one see my updated collection before i sell a good chunk of it. sadly i haven't had time to fix up any of the recent ones but sooner or later i will.

here is most of the fast traxx part of my collection:
(http://i1006.photobucket.com/albums/af186/czsummy/P3300194.jpg)

here is the upper shelf with a few other fast traxx items, krako indy car, mini eliminator, concept dodge viper, porche, and a mint outlaw(pictured later too.
(http://i1006.photobucket.com/albums/af186/czsummy/P3300195.jpg)

here is most of the nissan hard body trucks
(http://i1006.photobucket.com/albums/af186/czsummy/P3300197.jpg)

here are the nice eliminators and 4x4 bandits
(http://i1006.photobucket.com/albums/af186/czsummy/P3300191.jpg)

here are all the hopper like things
(http://i1006.photobucket.com/albums/af186/czsummy/P3300200.jpg)

and the rest:  the eliminator in this picture needs a new antenna and the big rig needs the front bumper repaired, and the red lambo is a single engine but the black one is a twin turbo parts one, the the twin turbo ferrari lights up but doesnt do anything i'll need to open it up and look at it.

Title: Re: Check it out!
Post by: performerrpm on March 30, 2011, 17:02:50
looks like you topped my number of bandits, think i only have 2 blacks 2 red and the bad boy bandit!!!


is all of those bandit chassis except the last one? i see you bought two of the outlaw trucks i seen on ebay, i guess your the one who bid on the outlaw motor that was on ebay?


where did you find a mint outlaw by the way?????



i might be interested in that beater red bandit or just the body if you decide to part with it, that red body would be sweet on kick azz bandit

nice collection bro. I'm jellous of all the bandits. I could'nt afford to buy that many now. You must have about $3000 worth of tyco's.


to think!!!! it was probally less than a year ago cz was posting the first time on here looking for information on vintage tycos trying to figure out which one would be the best to buy......at that time i think his collection was just the super fast traxx.

i think his collection is only 2nd in size to to tyco bandit kings
Title: Re: Check it out!
Post by: czstycor/c on March 30, 2011, 18:49:34
probably a little more than that cause i have lots of parts, and once i fix them up they will be worth more, plus i have a few hundreds worth in treads for the fast traxx and sf traxx.

oh and i didn't picture a in box scorcher, and in box typhoon.

those last two bandits on the right should be switched the yellow body is on the yellow baja bandits chasis. i wanted to see what the yellow body would look like with chrome to see which i liked better before i ship it off to you preformer.
i found that mint outlaw on ebay, it was on for a minute or so with a buy it now.

the red beater bandit needs to be fixed haha my lil bro ran it into something at full speed and i had the window out so the frame around the front window is broke, and the casing over the electronics broke in the back at a screw hole but j.b. weld will do the trick

i think a have more tycos than bandit king unless he has more somewhere. but his collection is bigger

( TYCO )  super,  red,  yellow,  red truck,  yellow truck, 2 black truck,  monster,  red mini,  red dozer,  part/beat black dozer
   
( NIKKO ) landshark, road shredder, streak 2, cheetah, rock crawler, super streak, ( those last 3 are from that guy in france that stan found after i got my streak 2, i got in contact with him  ;D )   

Soon hope to have a half traxx and i need a centipede yet with are always around, and a yellow mini     
O and the (RADIO SHACK) scorpion, and the lil slot cars,

One thing i found interesting about the super streak (witch is kinda beat) the motors are layed out like the fast traxx, not stacked like the others, they are left and right, and the board has a cover over it unlike the rest...weird

anyone else have a blimp in their r/c collectin? I'm trying to figure out where i can fill it up without looking like a dork or buying a crappy helium kit from walmart, so I haven't even taken it out of the box. I can find places where they fill tanks but can only find tanks so far used on craigslist and i'm a little hesitant to buy a used anything that holds compressed gases of any kind. I think i may train my 3 year old to ask stores if they can fill "his" toy but i'm having trouble training him to order a cinnamon twist at taco bell so let's see about that one.

Post by: poptart on September 19, 2011, 16:30:41
id love to see that thing in action,,although id be afraid it would just float away id never get it back lol,,and you can take your son to chucky cheese and bring it right in,they dont care what kind of boxed toy you bring in and there tanks are self serve to and extent in each party room

Post by: friedchickenfuelsme on September 19, 2011, 18:19:25
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luXAU1Y3Kfc  that's the only video i found of the same blimp. looks like fun but then there's the problem of where can i put it without my 15 month old getting ahold of it and popping it like he does balloons. i think it will be a shelf queen and it's sad because i used to be soo into blimps when i was a kid since i lived 2 blocks from the good year blimp in california for years, so when i found this i was soooo excited. I can always stare at it and day dream about flying (floating) it.

anyone have a tyco burnout turn-in-reverse car when they were younger? i picked one up from a thrift store and dont really want it so seeing if maybe it would bring back some memories for someone out there. i dont have a controller for it so can't test it but the wheel spin when you turn it on i just cant test the forward function but it looks really good. reply if you want me to e-mail you a picture. it wont let me upload on here.

Various sizes of Fast Traxx, just need a Super Fast Traxx to complete the line-up! Thankfully it's not impossible to find, just expensive :/  The second is part of my XRC collection, it's almost impossible to get stuck since the tracks run the whole width of the vehicle. This is actually from when I was a kid, XRC had some primo stuff but I guess wasn't as popular (or too expensive) and I haven't seen much of their stuff being passed around these days.

I think what you have there, is a little Taiyo release of a Porsche 959, in which they used fake sponsor decals.
Here you can see one on French ebay:

Heres my collection so far. I only collect the 9.6V and 7.2V tycos from the late 1980's and early 1990's They are all in their original boxes. Some are mint, and some have wear.  I know I am missing a few, but I also have some very rare ones that not many people own or have seen before.  There are no du-plicates in my collection but I do have the 27 and 49mhz of several different models. I have had this collection for about 8 years and was thinking about parting with it to make room for a new addition to the family.  You may see the lot on ebay soon or I would take offers from people on this forum.

The black phantom 2, scorpion 2 and 3 are all identical and all 1 speed. Me and my wife were running the phantom 2 an scorpion 3 head to head one time and they were running the same speed. Also the blue Nikko tacoma is the same just has the short axle.

i never had the 3,  my red scorpion 2 was a snail....compared to my blk phantom....corse, coulda been diff in batteries....however.... lol....soon as i can....i plan on hobby grading the phantom.


Title: Re: Put your collection here.
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on November 18, 2013, 17:14:16
The 2's were all neon yellow and the 3's were all red. Other than that they are all identical chassis wise. I've had a couple of each chassis that were slow due to a worn out motor but all of these had the same motor

In order to get the wheels to fit you would have to make adapters and it would be more trouble than its worth. The stock rears are actually pretty tough and would handle plenty of power. I will have to make videos once I've converted another to a hobby car with 2 speed. Goal is to use the original radio so it still looks stock :)

Wow, awesome collection. Very Jealous of that Porsche 962 and Twin Turbo Lambo Countach, I really want them for my collection but Taiyo branded since I am in Europe.

There have also been some more additions to my collection.

I just picked up a extremely rare Vintage RC Taiyo / Tyco RC. ;D

Taiyo Racing Pick Up 4WD from 1987. First time I have ever seen a boxed Taiyo version.

See it in action

That's a pretty great find Hopper. The Racing Pick Up is hard to find in any condition, but as you say, finding those original Taiyo black box versions is quite a challenge.

I have a black box Taiyo Lamborghini Countach LP500S on the way to me at the moment, but it cost me an arm and a leg. As you say, these things almost never come up.

I've also sold quite a bit in the past couple of weeks, with Christmas on the way...so most of the rarities I had for sale have now been snapped up by people to give as Christmas presents (stats: 7 cars sold in past fortnight, 5 of which were new in box).

Yeah, I was very surprised to find it, especially with the box. It is not in perfect condition but I got it for a very reasonable price considering it rarity. Please upload some pics of your Lambo when you get it, they are going for crazy prices. Even more for Ferrari 348 tb without box!

That remote looks very thin... like maybe a 1/4 inch. Is it just me?

Its about an inch. Just looks thin from the angle I guess.

Unfortunately it looks like some of the collection images that were attached on the forum have become corrupted. I've found some backup images that I've tried loading onto the server, but there appears to still be others that I don't have. New uploads don't seem to be having a problem though, so if you have some new photos, feel free to upload them.
