RC car/truck thread

Yea I bought like 20 plastic ones. It came with I think 2 different sizes. I think I bought the smaller ones. Actually I probably bought like 10 of each. I haven’t fucked with it in over a year. I fixed it and just left it sitting.

I got all wasted and ordered all this shit, I don’t even know what to do with. My plan at one point was to make it bulletproof.

That looks like a good snowy Sunday afternoon project. Smoke a bowl, watch some football and do upgrades. Lol

My intentions going in were to get a nitro car. I ended up on fucking YouTube videos for the e revo. I couldn’t resist. I wonder if I made the right choice. I’m pretty sure they’re both equally pain in the asses. The battery charging really sucks, but I’ve heard nitro cars have their own issues.

Nitros are definitely different. Most people don’t wanna run them. I personally don’t find them that hard. It’s not a plug and play like the electrics but you also don’t have to stop and wait for a battery to charge.

I keep hearing Nitros.

Funny because several years ago all the shops told me Nitro was a thing of the past.

Electric replaced Nitro and was faster, more reliable etc.

Good to hear talk of Nitros.

You walk into a shop today and they’ll tell you the same thing. They are correct in the ease of electric and brushless motors are fast as shit. I prefer nitros cause it’s a small, fuel powered engine. The sound and smell can’t be beat. I know I lot of people don’t want them, but when we show up at a track with them everyone’s watching the nitros.
