Radio Control Boxster

About a year ago I started search for a Radio Control Porsche to build. I found that one company used to manufacture a 1/10 scale boxster. The problem was They "used to". The good thing about discontinued items is you can often find them on e-bay. It took a couple of months for one to pop up and I was high bidder at $150 plus shipping. I ordered the exact match paint for the car turned it into a replica of my car. The radio control version is a hard top but I painted the top black to match my convertible top. Anyway here are the pictures

The last two pictures It's actually an easy build if anyone is interested in doing one themselves. The hardest part is finding the kit and it is a bit stressful building it knowing that there are no replacement parts.







I think I will be changing out the "Boxster" plate to a replica of the one that is on my car

Nice. But, there's nothing like having a remote controlled drone.

$61 bucks for shipping killed it!

Too bad, I could play the "Road Rage" game with a new Porsche RC and my Nitro Traxxas Rustler! Just like Texas roads, the trucks are trying to keep up with everything else. The problem is….the Traxxas does wheelies at about 50mph!

Wish my Pcar did wheelies!
