Don't know about a RC nutter, but the kids and I built a Tamiya Gravel Hound over Christmas, they sprayed the shell and I got them to build as many of the assemblies as they could. Putting the tyres on the wheels was nearly beond me .

I had a car like that 20 years ago and I also had an Alsatian. Trouble is I spent ages building and spraying the car and the bl__dy dog spent seconds chasing and eating my car. I thought the car was fast, the b__+_dy dog was much faster.

Well I've run over one dog and my Son knocked over a teenager the other day. No teeth marks yet !

I'm gonna start marking my results on the side of the car AKA: Bomber/Fighter pilot style.

Bought with my xmas/birthday money.

http://www.hobbyzone.com/rc_planes_h..._super_cub.htm

Total damage sustained so far:
1x propellor
1x spinner
ripped the undercarriage off when landing too fast
Managed to fly into a tree and although the fuselage made it through the wing didn't. New wing and a few more spare props on order.

Great fun though.

I hace a cen ff2 buggy. Great car 40+mph with tuning. I you have any questions or want any advice about these cars as i have rebuilt the engine on mine about 4 times. And done major repair work on the car. One thing make you you clean it out after a run in wet grass and pudddles as most of the components are not rust proof. And make sure you warm the engine up properly and don't use very high % nitro fuel.

I also have a model p-51 mustang picture of simlar model below.
