Tamiya quickly followed up the 934's popularity with yet another Porsche within RC's 1st year. Body is again from an existing static kit. Reusing the same chassis layout, the motor was enlarged to the longer RS-380 and a simpler/beefier speedcontroller was provided to better handle nicad power.(Description originally entered by Pandabear)

In 1977 the best I could get was the Tandy a Radio Shack 935. A complete rip off but actually was pretty good. Finally thanks to eBay got the real deal last year. I'm obsessed about modernising a few things on it like putting ball bearing on it, it's done now they are so realistic especially when you crash them!!!

I had one of these back in the Autumn of 1979, my first RC car. I recall having a 380 motor in it to start with, but got a 'tune up' 540 motor and gearbox for it soon after, a nd ballraced bearings. This made it move at a rate of knots! The 3 speed MSC was a bit uneven in power delivery, making driving it in the wet quite entertaining!
The end came when the car hit a bump at speed, hitting the radio switch at rear to 'OFF', so it went flat out into a concrete kerb, destroying it pretty completely!

Wish I had kept the bits now, probably worth a fortune on Ebay!
