      Gubble, they’re usually availble cheaply from weekend markets and that kind of thing. I have a couple of Taiyo genuine Radicans (on which all these Tin Cars are based). They’re not cheap but they are For Sale 🙂

      I have 2 cars already. One from Frenetic, which is a 57 chev and is great, and one from myer, which has Novatoy THOR written on it and it has really crap steering. I paid $30 for the one from Frenetic and $60 for the one from Myer. The crap one from myer has a turbo button that does nothing.

      How much for the Radicans Aaron?

      I have a Char-G clone that has THOR on the controller. This also has Craaap steering, basically will not go straight and appears to have a lot of slack in the steering. I got from Marlows for $18.95.

      Shypo I’m not sure if they have gone bust or not but the main office which was also an internet cafe before xmas is now a real estate agent. I have been ringing the 2 phone numbers I’ve got but just get an answering machine.If anyone knows somebody who lives near Whetherill Park in Sydney they could check them out.They are on The Horsley Drive.
