Im just getting into my nitros :)

I find nitro's a bit of a handful, not very reliable and all that. Plus with a brushless motor (like in my cars) electrics are faster... And a lot quieter lol

ive got a Traxxas Revo 3.3 full race spec

Nice, that's an expensive bit of kit. Any pics/vid of it in action?

Also, seeing as you live not far from me, do you know anywhere where I can take the lunchbox to have a run around? The only one I know of is in crystal palace park but that has been closed for years...

Erm... tbh I just run mine in the road outside where I keep them! I am a member of a group on facebook called South East Surrey RC, we're trying to have a regular meet in Horley, which is bit of a treck for you, but if you search it on Facebook, I can add you!

Also, if you're 'in' to your RC cars, may be worth joining Tamiya Club, good source of info, parts, swaps, meets ect.... some bits are harder to find than for the full size cars!

Forgot to say, LOVE THE BEETLE!! I've got one too, but mine needs new bumpers, but I couldn't complain for what I paid for it!

I'm not brave enough to go racing, I do it more for the modifying/upgrading and bashing side of it. Racing sounds too expensive to me too!

Thanks mate, not really that into it all, just like building them and driving them about.

Can't find the Facebook club, there are a couple with similar names, which one is it exactly?

Check out my brushless hot rod with custom made headlights, it's rapid, might paint it in rust paint!
