    I've got 2 RC gas cars, Traxxas T-Max for both, with cruiser bodies on both. They do about 40-50 mph.

    They are way cool..

    I've had 7 or 8 electric cars, mostly Kyosho and Tamiya but that was years ago. If I was to buy one today, it would be a 1/8 scale gas car.

    I've got the 40 body on my T-Max. I keep blowing up nitro motors. Wish I could retro fit it with an electric sometimes.

    Euclid42 just "welded" the diff on his RC with superglue. I told him to post pics. You gotta love taking something that you have learned, and applying it to something else.

    Yes. The E-Maxx is the electric version. The T-Maxx being the nitro version. Tower Hobby has pretty good prices. http://towerhobby.com/


    Gumby are you serious? If so PM me and I'll give you more details on what I have.

    Gumby, what brand motors are you putting in it, to keep blowing it up ? I race one of my t-maxx and have had really good luck with it, even though when it does go i am going to go with another brand engine .

    holy fricking money pits!!!! I had to park mine to start working on the cruiser again.Just go big block right off the bat. I can play with mine again after the cruiser is off the jack stands.

    A total blast, but it takes all my money.

    Break in mix for the first tank or two, then the regular stuff.

    I get bored just running it around and start jumping things and tearing stuff up.
