What is the best-looking RC car of ALL TIME?

From the futuristic styling of RC’s “first wave” in the 1980s to the cab-forward look of today’s race trucks and buggies, RC has never lacked for wild design ideas. Which shapes resonate with you as pure visions of RC awesomeness? Choose any model or body design, past or present, car, truck or “other”—beauty is in the eye of the beholder, after all (that’s you).

  1. Tamiya #58519 Bruiser Toyota 4X4 Pickup Truck

  2. TAMIYA Super Champ without a doubt! Which other buggy has F.F.P.D.S? Beautiful all alloy rear end with the iconic FS rear plate and oil bottle reserve out the back. Beautifully styled body with excellent livery to match. Just perfect! And the Tamiya promo vid, what a blast to watch, even today. I`ve never looked at any other buggy more than the SC, my favorite by far.

  3. The early chain drive Kyosho Optima.

  4. Engineering wise, I really like the look of the Tamiya F201 (Formula 1), even if it broke a wishbone if someone looked at it wrong. Also, the first time I saw a car make I can’t remember, it was belt driven, prebuilt, called the something x2000. The screws fell out at every opportunity, and the belt pulleys came apart, but it was an amazing looking chassis.

  5. Kyosho Salute

  6. I like the HPI Mini Trophy for realism. The 5B would be my second choice.

  7. Tamiya Sand Scorcher dune buggy: model, realism, color scheme, … all so well made they even made a 1:1 scale specimen

  8. kyosho igt 1 aston martin .

  9. For me personaly it would probably be a Rc10T4.1 with the jconcepts high flow body.

  10. My fav designed vehicles are the cab forward of the 8IGHT 2.0 and 8IGHT-T 2.0

  11. Lunchbox and the Monster Beetle.
