    Something looks unusual with your truck… Where’s all your stinky, polluting, and obnoxiously loud nitro guts? Instead I'm seeing wires and electronics through the front window and battery straps...

    Mamba Max (w/fan & cap)

    Well 15 high-speed runs are far more impressive then a setup that can withstand a single run (what your video seems to imply).

    Yeah “practical” setups are a challenge to actually achieve. IMHO,...
