    I posted Videos of 1/8 Traxxas Funny car Demo at NHRA race

    I was at NHRA drag race in Charlotte today, and Traxxas had huge setup there, including a mini drag strip with upcoming 1/8 funny cars and christmas trees. After getting my hands on one, and watching the traxxas guys race them, I decided I have to have one. Tried to buy one, but traxxas rep said that they couldn't sell any today. I saw 5 or 6 of the funny cars there, some with retail boxes. Rep said that they would be available "later this month" (he wouldn't commit to April 16, like the traxxas site showed).

    To see up close videos I took today, go to the tube and search "traxxas funny car demo". Not sure if can link to video directly here.

    Makes me wonder how quick the tree counts once staged. You have to flip a couple switches once staged.

    The traxxas guys there were talking about switching between pro and sportsman on the tree. They were on pro tree when i watched. The sportsman mode should give more time. I think sportsman counts down more lights, which would give more time.... Just a guess, dont know for sure.

    Would love to see a race a little longer like a scale 1/4 mile.
