RC Smash-Up Derby

Radio-controlled version of the Kenner classic

One of the great things about having RC cars available on two frequencies is that two people can simultaneously zip their cars around. Of course, rather than just trying to get around a racecourse, the natural thing to do is to try to ram each other.

I would thus propose RC cars constructed similarly to Kenner's Smash Up Derby(R) brand toy, where the goal was to inflict certain "damage" to the other car. First person to get e.g. three separate scorable hits wins, then the body panels are reset to their "undented" state and the game repeated.

(?) For the Kenner deprived, some pictures... http://www.hakes.co...inggo.asp?item=2121
Various parts (doors and so on) would pop off when the cars collided. [krelnik, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]
