I know my blog is mostly based on toys that fly, but truthfully, back in 1987 was when i first got into the radio control hobby with my very own Tamiya Frogger Remote Control Car with a Tamiya RX-54050 brushed motor, gosh good old days.
In any case, feast your eyes on this new 1/16 Brushless 4WD Mini Rally RC Car Fully adjustable suspension by Turnigy over at hobbyking. it has a front toe in and out with adjustable shock absorbers, adjustable chamber settings, adjustable drop height, sway bars and more for only $71.95
Oil filled adjustable Shock absorbers
Anti roll sway bars as standard
Fully ball raced
Light weight glass fibre chassis
Tunable suspension geometry
Strong 15g Steering servo
Brushless power train as standard
Spare Parts Available
Aluminium upgrades coming soon!
Motor: Brushless Inrunner 2040-4800kv
ESC: 25A Brushless 2~3S (with Reverse)

Servo: 15g Micro

My guess is you can upgrade the motor to a higher KV on a 3S lipo 40amp ESC and hit speeds of 70+ mph, or just attach a plane wing from your cub and make this one airborne.
