    My New Toy!

    My parner bought me this for my birthday! Its a 1/10 scale nitro car with a .18 engine which is about 1.5 BHP it has a 2 speed gear box and will top over 50 MPH. The car was in kit form and is still incomplete, waiting for some of the radio gear to arrive, the suspension also needs tweeking as its oil filed, then the engine will need running in! here is a few pics!




    199 BHP 322 lbs/ft Torque from a smokey diesel!!!!

    lol thats unlucky. There good fun but fragile and costly. The battery wires on mind dragged on the floor and got water in them, then it decided to do what it wanted. Knocked the steering out ect, shame tho
