    Just wondering if anyone else is into R/C cars? I love them, and have been playing with them since i was real young, i even joined a league at one time and raced them, LOL. I have had a bunch of different cars, stadium trucks, monster trucks, buggies, even and onroad car. I really like 1/8 scale buggies though, and i'll have to get some shots of mine, but just wanted to see if anyone else was into them?

    Traxxas Rustler (electric)
    Traxxas Jato
    HPI RS4 on-road
    HPI MT2 G3.0 (current and being sold) (look in my gallery)

    Im not "into it" but I bought this thing about 10 years ago and break it out for fun now and then. Definately not a serious one like your gassers but it'll do around 25-30MPH with the electric motors in it:)

    Yeah it's a Nitto special-but I paid good money for it then-like 130 bucks. It has pretty good motors on each axle-it rips pretty good on full charge.
