    I always wanted one of these as a kid. Thought I would check ebay but I cant remember the name of it.
    It was a 6 wheeled vehicle about a foot long. I remember them from the early 80's It was grey in color with black wheels. It could be programmed to drive places and turn with a keypad on the top. It had a optional dumping trailer. Anyone have any idea what I am talking about?

    i thought about bidding on a couple of those on ebay. one of 'em has the big trak and trailer for 68 bucks right now.
    but really, do i need another toy that will get played with for a few days, then join the pile in the closet?

    i bet you could rig up a model rocket launch rod in the trailer, and use the 'dump' function to launch rockets..... /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
