I used to own/run a website dedicated to RC vehicles. http://www.rcjimsplace.com. You can only see it on the internet archive these days. I still have all my old toys though.

Very cool, thank you for sharing!

exactly guys and those pesky extra batteries don't cost a fortune all you have to do is fill up and go without having to wait hours for the spare batteries to charge. I'd venture to guess that you'd need 5 batteries to last you all day long but with nitro if you run out of gas all you gotta do is refill the tank LOL. I've already rolled mine 3 times like a dumb ass, And Jimmy I didn't know that you used to do this that's quite AWESOME! AND BRUCIE....what did you say you ran before?

Ya, we used to race competitively. Was a shit ton of fun. Last thing RC related I did was fly my Beast 3d Micro biplane. I think I have a video of it going nuts on my youtube account... Wind gust blew in and it was all I could do to get it back on the ground.

Like I said before I can't even hammer the gas from a standstill without just completely spinning out. My 3.3 is the fastest 10th scale out there
