So I’m currently building my first R/C after an over 10 year hiatus, and the sentimental and nostalgic part of me has decided on going old school with the paint job on my mew body. I thought it might be fun to start a new thread with pictures of those OG rides, here are some that I am drawing inspiration from. I really wish I would have kept my old r/c mag collection passed down to me from my uncle, so let’s see those old neon and pastel colors, checker board, clear windows, spoilers, decals, logos, and the rest of the good stuff from the golden era!

Not sure when the term "stadium truck" came into play, but back in '91, when I raced my Traxxas Blue Eagle, the class was just called "truck". The
RC10ST/RC10T wasn't even out yet.

I see you have a Ko Propo decal on that kit from 1991. I didnt realize they had been around that long.

Not mine, but I have 2. Ones a buddys, the other I bought for my 16th birthday I think. Under 100 150 I can't remember, and it had an xl1 rustler. Both cars were the same red black white, and are 2003 Traxxas Nitro Sport s.e. cheap plastic pipe, pro.15 nitro rwd. His is a nitro sport, mine is almost converted to a nitro slash.

I'm trying to locate a similar body to do the same paint scheme on.

These body shells ARE WHERE ITS AT!!! Totally love them, wondering if something like them would fit on my Bugsta was hoping to convert one of my nitro buggys to a pickup/truggy style but its hard to find shells the right size for those!!!

Not 90s by any means besides the colors but here's my latest speed run body project for my Arrma Limitless. Hoping with going to a GT body I'll see some good gains with the loss of drag running open wheel. Made it to 145mph open wheel though which is amazing especially being my first speed run season ever🤘🏼

I know this isn't a vintage thread but I don't have a new one with an old body. Here is a 93 model, pretty rough but it is what it is

This is a vintage thread if nothing else! All are welcome though, anything with old school or similarly inspired paint is what it’s all about!
