A while back (late 90's, early 2000's, don't know when exactly) I loved RC's and bought a Tamiya Baja Champ chassis and body and built it from scratch. It never really worked all that well though, and I ended up getting frustrated and because I was young, it just sat in the closet. I dug it out about a week ago and had a friend work on it for me and get it running, and I must say I'm hooked again.
The thing is a rocket, I don't know much about it but I know it's plenty fast for me. I was missing my remote (Old Hi-Tec Lynx) and my radio was fried so my buddy put in some Tamiya radio and is letting me borrow his controller for a bit. At the moment the tyres are bald as can and it's missing a hex from the front wheel so it must sit as a 2wd but it's still a blast. Although I don't know how much longer it will last, I run it pretty damn hard. I was wondering if anybody has any experience with RC18's or any other 1/18 scale cars, and if they're strong enough to jump like this (the quarter pipe in my yard):
