    Mid 90s cheepo RC car

    I remember as a child my first RC car. I’m trying to find that exact car and was wandering if any one here can help me. The car had tank treds on it but was not a tank this was back in the early or mid 90s. It was a cheepo car probably from Service Merchandise or a store like that. If any one can help just a little bit I would really appreciate it.


    Thanks

    Tread machine

    Does it have a revving sound as it move forward ? It's quite zippy running on 9.6v NiCad. The remote has 2 levers, push both forward to go, push only one and it will turn, push one forward one backward and it will spin.

    There is light and sounds. If that is the machine then I still got it although the rubber tread itself has disintegrated due to humidity.

    Mid 90s cheepo RC car

    Fast Traxx that’s it. I remember now. Hay thanks guys for your help. I just did a search and found it. I can’t thank you guys enough I spent hours and hours a day looking for this thing.
    Can't seem to find one for sale though. If any of you guys have one and are willing to part with it let me know.

    heres a picture of the exact model i had.

    If any of you know ware I might find one of these I would appreciate the info. I went to Tyco RC web page and it doesn’t look like they produce this car any more. I looked on e-bay with no luck eather.
