Just copy and paste the list as you add. Feel free to correct any duplications or mistakes as the list grows. Just make a note of it by highlighting in "blue".

I know theres more, I just can't think of them right now. The one thats slipping my mind at the moment is the name of the Wally World brand.

As I get time. I'd like to add a small describtion of each and a pic or two so that they can be used as a reference. So that newbs can identify a strange or unfamiliar 1:64th RC.

I'll do this in the original post. The list can grow from post to post.

I like the alphabet idea.

Digi Q's are quasi counting.

I got told if I make the highlight green, I'd get kicked in the nutz. lol


I'm glad some of you have a better memeroy than me. :-o

I will gvet to work on this ASAP. But probably after the 4th of July. I thought of it as a project of mine and thought I'd get it started.

*Panther Chariot(are these what you meant by "Panther" above?)
I think it might be the same Panther brand, but they're totally different cars.

Panther's were one of the better quality dome clones back in the day, some would say better than Bit Char-G. The Panther Chariot is Zip Zap sized, with a full size pistol grip controller and a rather crappy 3 step throttle.

You know, Cannonball's are Bensu, and I believe Rally Racers are Bensu. (Were Rally Racers mentioned yet?). Maybe we should work out subcategories for all the various Zip Zaps, and like Charg- N Go and Thunder Charger were made by Mega Toys as I'm sure a few others were. Oh yeah and Microspeed didn't see that on there. They had Microspeeds, then later Microspeed Extremes, that also included motorcycles and stunt cars. The Microspeed controller is identical to the Hot Wheels one, which makes me think there is some kind of connection.


Hey, want me to throw out some descriptions, to get you started?

Rally Racers are Shen Qui Wi... I'm sure of it, they be my micro of choice.

@Namuna... Ya man! I bought my first Tomy off of QFM, T'was my 4th micro, and my willingness to pay $40 for it was my first clue to how sick I was becoming lol

I agree with the need to sub-categorize this list... Like the Bensu thing... Cannonball, Thor, etc... Bensus were relabled under a bunch of names... there seemed to be varying degrees of quality to those too... Like, Cannonballs were so-so, and the Thors sucked ass.

There were only a few Tomiya cars made. They were full propo die cast cars. Decent cars minus the thick die cast. Bigger motor and dual celled. I still want to take one apart and put a light body on it to see what it does but it's one of the few cars I don't destroy due to it's rarity.
Cause I ride around town on my low-rider bicycle.
