have you guys heard of these little rc cars???

I was just wondering. have any of you heard of those little rc cars that are really popular here in the U.S this holiday season??? I got two the other day and they are fast for their size. you can change car bodies if you wanted to. I got four bodies because I got one clear/blue honda S-2000 for free. Then I bought a red and yellow mercedes CLK body. then the other two bodies i got are a silver honda S-2000 body, and a black honda accord body. i drag race my cars. one car goes faster off the line, but the other has a faster TOP END . the little cars are awesome.

I have a Zip-Zap, Microsizer, Nakamichi Racer, and 2 clones. They are fun for a few days, but are pretty boring after that. I got tired of the poor range, short run times, cheap (breakable) parts, and limited upgrade options. I wish I had the $100 back that I spent on them so I could buy another Z-racer. Those other cars are garaged in a cardboard box in my closet.

yes, they are clones, but thats not a bad thing...I have clones that go faster than the real Bit Char-G's. At TinyRC.com they have some bent obsession on the "real cars". They are VERY biased on what cars to get.

Just stick with Mini-Z's They are better than those little Bits.

today at WALMART I bought a non clone mini rc car. it is made by planet toys. it has a stock truck body on it, it looks like a ford. today i raced the truck against the clone and the truck stomped it off the line with low batteries. LOL.

not to be mean or rude, but tinyrc the sister site of mzr is dedicated to these types of micro rc's. i think i saw david there? i read so much, it's hard to remember. there are a lot of people that you see in both forums.

i have 2 bit char g's, 1 zip zap. there are tons of things you can do to these little things. while they are fun to play with, they don't compete with my z or overland.
