Does anyone remember mico RC cars being popular in the early 2000s? I remember Zip-Zaps, but what were other brands? I reember mall kiosks having their on generic brands and would like tonpick some up again. These toys had durability issues but they were really charming.

Oh fuck, I remember these. Sadly I couldn't help you, OP, though I do think tiny RC chassis are still sold online or so.

I remember Zip Zaps. Never had them myself. My friends and I got into Xmods. Those things were cool as fuck.

i like zipzaps exclusively for their micro appeal and chibi aesthetic. I had one xmod however and that WAS sometjing i was obsessed with for a while. i only had one but I "modded" the shit out of it. I had some really riced out looking car with underlights and a body kit. there was even a forum around for a while.

that post really didnt make much sense. what i mean is i like both for their own reasons. The thing anout xmods is they were a lot hardier than zipzaps. The turning mechanism on all of those little micro cars would pull one way or the other and it was impossible to fix. Xmods had less of an issue with it and felt more like a quality thing to own and not just a toy.

I don't own these things... Okay maybe I did, but these didn't last that long and it was forgotten. The only mini RC was the Litehawk Mini Blast, which was heavily modified.

i remember buying a few of them at FAO schwartz back in the early 2000s, they were fun as hell for what they were

while trying to scan around hoping to recognize some off brands, i did see bit char g. i never had any but was curious what theyre like? do they scale right with other brands or do they have their own size?
