Oh.. You've got left.. And right.! Jolly good.!
Mardave are still going taday.. I had a Mardave Mini years ago.. Furious little thing.!
They do Mardave only championships, so it's down to skill alone. (which I don't have, judging by the amount of spares I bought) lol.
They've moved on a bit nowadays..
The Chinese have cornered the "Cheap n' Cheerful" market.. £150/200 will have you smiling.. For a week till you've got to order spare parts.. A couple of days later, you'll be smiling again though.!
THEY DO BREAK A LOT.!!
Brushless electric motors & Li-Po batteries have made them mental fast today.. 100+ out the box.!

Yeah, well we can't all be natural born TV presenters can we!   I could have done better for sure and I don't need telling about it.   Fortunately I was better at producing low cost car kits which got many people into the hobby and regularly hear the words 'Oh, my first car was a Mardave!'.    Amazingly many people still run our early cars and contribute to manyFacebook pages on vintage Mardaves.     I was very lucky to be in the right place at the right time to be in on a new hobby and to make a living out of it.
