    Ok, when ever you decide to put them on youtube, post a link here. So whats the pros and cons you think of electric vs nitro? Out of your set of RCs, what setup do you like the best?

    Both. They're both fun, both have their advantages and downfalls, and both make you rip your hair out when shit doesn't go right.

    Biggest issue with the t-maxx is usually the engine itself.

    Then you need a Savage. Get a Savage Flux, 2 pairs of 2S batteries and BABING.

    It's expensive for initial purchase...but it's one of the best bang-for-the-buck MTs. Savage don't care about no curbs :p

    I was never into the RC stuff, but one of the guys stationed with me at the Fire Dept is into it big time. he's brought his cars and desert racer in a few times, and watched him run them out back of the station.
    It looks like a blast, and I just might look into it a little farther. Just trolled the Losi website this morning, and they have a 1/10th scale Rock Crawler that I found very appealing.......I can see it now, my family will see me building a minature off road park in the back yard and think I've gone totally Looney Toons......:freak3:

    Nah...we were only running 2 classes tonight...so was marshalling every heat that wasn't racin.

    Ran the SC10. Last time on the track was 10 years ago with an Associated RC10B2...the SC10 is a direct successor of the RC10 platform...only 3 generations later, lol.

    A friggin blast. Can't believe it's taken this long to get back on the track. Definitely have to work on setup and drivin skill, lol
