Nitro R/C.
« on: 08:14, Fri 27 May 2011 »
I had a play with my brother in laws Nitro R/C the other week and now i'm hooked.

I think this would be a good little hobby, i could take the little'un with me over the chase and spend the mornings playing with these things.

Anyone on here have one? This is all new to me, i was thinking of this one?

i've got an old hpi savage 25 and its a beast and never let me down

always buy new tho as you wont have any problems then, and use after run oil every time you put it away makes for easier starting  :D

oh and a failsafe if the radio going out of range then the truck comes to a stop rather than full throttle into something hard  :roll:  :lol:

This is a nightmare.

Seems like car engines, there are a million differents views on engine 'break in'.

Think i will stick with manufactorers recommendations, whatever they may be. Looking to buy new next weekend.  :mrgreen:

I picked up the Bullet MT yesterday.

Didn't really do much with it, spent most the day with everything on charge. Managed to idle a tank of fuel through it though. Smells nice!  :mrgreen:

Patience is the key, sooo tempted just to drop it on it's wheels and tear it around everywhere.  :lol:

This thing is a complete riot!

I've run 5 tanks of fuel through it now and started to open it up a bit.

Been faultless so far, the dogbone style driveshafts are completely useless though, looking at the forums they have a habit of popping out so it's not just me.

Wasted about an hour searching the fields for the bloody thing.  :twisted:
