Default This ever happen to you?

I was looking for a body for a stadium truck. I knew I had it, just couldn't remember where. In the course of looking for it I found an entire rc car I forgot I bought. Still NEW in the box, as in I never even opened the darn thing. I vaguely recall it being on clearance and I thought, jeez for $100.

It's like an early christmas for me, woo hoo!

I remember dreaming about those while looking through OFNA's yearly catalogs. I don't remember when they first came out but this is 2013...

I think it it was a re release or name change from a Jammin something. After OFNA went out Redcat re released it as well. But even that is gone, I should stock up on some arms and stuff while I can.
The packing slip was from 07/2013 for $99.99, lol

Also while looking for that stadium body I found my box of Traxxas spares that contained mounting hardware and caster blocks (RPM no less) that I re-ordered a couple weeks ago.

Yes. Been cleaning up the collection lately and have come across a number of cars I forgot I bought. Of course there's so much stuff in my basement I' liable to find a real car down there.
