  1. This is so cool! I didn’t know this exists. I remember this was an in thing back when I was in high school. Back then, we’d do all sort of things with a dynamo like building those mini cars or boats

  2. This is so nostalgic. I owned one and even attempted to build a race track at home. Until this day, I still can’t figure out how the Anime characters can keep up running along with their mini 4wd cars. 😀

  3. Oh wow, I just had some serious waves of flashbacks and nostalgia after seeing this and taking a look at GRC’s Facebook page. A part of me just wants to immediately head over there and grab a kit for myself and start playing around with it just like the old times. It’s nice to see that some people are still enjoying it to this day. It’s definitely quite a cool hobby to be into.
