Default Tyco Twin Turbo Hopper Question

Love the look of the Tyco Buggy. I have heard that vintage there are some vintage tyco RC that they need trigger throttle turn. Question I have is about the remote and turning. When driving the RC do you need to pull the trigger on the remote while twisting the remote wheel for the Buggy to turn?

Yes, that's how you drive any RC car. By the way, I am moving this to the toy section.

Thanks for the response. Most hobby grade RC wheels can twist to the right or the left without having to touch the throttle.

My Question is, does the Tyco Twin Turbo Hopper and other vintage toy grade RC buggy wheels will not turn without the throttle being pulled? While the RC is still the wheels can not twist to the right or left? Is that common on the Tyco Twin Turbo Hopper?

Ah, I got you now. I see no reason why you couldn't turn the wheels, but toys are not my RC forte.

Yes, you had to apply throttle in order to steer, on many Tyco / Taiyo RC vehicles. Some no, but most yes.
