Nitro RC Tech In 1977 [VIDEO]

Nitro RC Tech In 1977 [VIDEO]

1977. Star Wars is in theaters, the Atari 2600 is burning the screen of your console TV, and if you had an Apple II, lookout man, the future is here. As for RC tech, well, it had some catching up to do. As this amazing news bit from Britain shows, beige-box stick radios and folded sheet metal “technology” were state-of-the-art stuff. Gotta say though, these rides still look pretty cool with their vintage bodies (they’re vintage now, anyway), and they were doing 50mph even back then (not lookin’ too fast in the action shots though). And Mardave? Still in business mate, since 1969.
