    i just picked up one of these from wal-mart for $13.


    it's so much fun! the range is a little weak (about 15 feet) but there are mods i can make to improve it. pretty quick too. and my cat HATES it and wishes it would die!

    anyone else have a mini r/c car?

  3. Nope, but I want one reaaaaaaaaal bad. Ill go buy one someday soon. What mods can you do to it to increase range?

    Speaking of Jeff Gordon...anyone else see his appearance on SNL? Man was that awful!

    That's pretty sweet, Jason. My store had a Skyline Microsizer, but I haven't seen it since Christmas. Those were selling for about 20.

    (It always comes back to the Skyline.)
