Hi there,

Im after a Petrol/nitro/fuel powered R/C car. Any condition is okay as long as it at least runs. Prefferable brand = Tamiya, but others are okay too.

PM me with what you got and how much your asking :)

Thanks
Ryan

Kinda. Electric stadium trucks.... will get into nitro eventually. Got an electric rx8 kicking around somwhere... On road too full on for my liking, if you start racing you'll see what im talking about... they carry on like children - complaining, b**ch...

Offroad just about thrashing the cars and breaking stuff :) Even race meets are heaps laid back. Jumps are cool ;)

Firstly, you can do sooo much better than Tamiya.

Secondly, try this site:

www.rcracer.com.au.

Get into it if you can. Its great fun!

Maybe wheel nut size is the same - the 20 something mm hex hub is fairly standard. Maybe some of the pinions from the electrics, but you're looking at nitro....

Nitro is generall faster in any situation. Although brushless electric motors with 10 cell battery packs can also generate some insane speeds. But im pretty sure all RC drag racing is nitro.

Lol, would probably be worth seeing if there is a drag racing scene in your state before laying down that kind of money.
