Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

Discussion in '2000 Porsche Carrera GT Concept' started by Carrera GT Fury, Nov 14, 2002.

  1. I might just have to order one of these. It said "Metal Built" so I'm assuming it's made of metal, unless that's the brand name. It's 1/18 Scale and only $29.

    Tight!!! I saw one on Porsches website but that was $35. Is there a difference except for color on the two models?

    I'm not sure what the differences are. The Porsche website doesn't tell you anything about it besides the size (1/18). This one just looks a lil better in my opinion. This is what the website says....

    $29 is a little much for a model IMO. sure the car is good, and most people would say it's worth it but not me. I love the viper, but i am no way in hell gonna pay $20 bucks for a frickin model. you must be crazy. I would rather just buy the real one (just a joke). but hey if you got the green, go for it.
     
  7. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    I want the R/C!
     
  8. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    now that is different. I would like to buy one of those. That is a good investment!
     
  9. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    Dude that thing can go up to 50 mph! Now that right there is something sweet. I could race other people (with little Tyco R/C cars) for money and then smoke and get even with the money I spent! BTW MastrVipr your Tyco rules!
     
  10. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    The turbo rc car is cool.And the stock car cannot get to 50Mph.
    40 is more likly.
     
  11. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    O well its still faster then most Tyco cars. I still wouldn't mind 40 mph but with enhacements it can probably reach 50.
     
  12. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    Yup! But it doesn't stop there... with enhancements it's capable of going much faster. There is an article of a guy going for 100mph. 50 is definitely possible.
     
  13. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    Yah but it must be a lot of work to obtain it and maintain it.
     
  14. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    Probably not too much work for somebody familiar with R/C's but for me... yah, I wouldn't know where to start.
     
  15. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    it's not really difficult to make the hpi rs4 to run at 50mph or even 60mph,simply change the engine,and the exhaust pipe,that's all,around
    $250 US.The chassis and the suspension of the rs4 is very durable,there's not need to upgrade.

    It's not difficult to maintain at all, you just need to know how to tune and maintain the engine(very easy), clean the car after each run.
    And do maintainence as needed(when there's something broken).
     
  16. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    I'm pretty good at fixing Tyco R/C's cuz I fixed mine repeatedly and two of my cousins also had one that I fixed. But then the money discourages me you know...I have no job <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

  19. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    ok then, nevermind.
     
  20. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    Can't wait to grow up and land a high paying job so I can buy me one of these.
     
  21. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    I bought a 911 Targa model today, for only $10. from this place called Costco. They also had the Carrera 4S, but i didn't like that one. i also bought a Viper GT2. (GTSR)
     
  22. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    Why are we talking about this in the first place i mean ......
     
  23. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    you mean what? you can talk about anything about the CGT or Porsche. and i only said the thing about the viper cuz we are talking about models. If you are having problems with the thread and forum, i suggest you go post somewhere else.
     
  24. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    I have a C4s, I HAD a McLaren F1, and I HAD a 550 Maranello. Tragedy struck both when they crashed into each other. I'm planning on buying the Carrera GT model or a GT2 or a 996 Turbo.
     
  25. Re: Carrera GT Model, $29 WOW

    ha, tragedy that's funny.
    yeah, i am looking for a GT2. those are pretty nice.
