What do you have for RC car/trucks?

So what brand and scale of RC does everyone use/have?

I've got HPI and Traxxas. I have a 1/5th scale HPI Baja 5T, a Traxxas Revo 3.3, an HPI Savage XL big block, and a HPI Savage X with an Axial .28 engine.

I had to vote for everything except Losi and 1/5th scale, but I own a fleet of cars and trucks I've been collecting since '87.

And the Slayer Pro with a 3.3 engine and 2.4GHz controller. The only thing you need to buy with these new RTR RC's is Fuel and some AA batteries.
