    I got 3 x 4500mAh batteries when I bought mine. I get about 30 minutes per battery out of running it around the BMX track and round the park. They're just generic chinese ones I believe, nothing...

    Rally cars. Ideally from the end of the 2WD era (Lancia Stratos etc), but more likely a 1/10 scale Mitsi Evolution. With the popularity of the X-Games stadium races, it could be a hit with cars that...

    I think it's physically bigger than a 1/10 buggy, in the same way a real life stadium truck is bigger than a real life buggy. The stampede & rustler are harder to compare as they don't "map" to a...

    I'm a newbie, but I concur. The nitro machines seem so divorced from real world vehicles that I can't get interested in them. I've been thinking that it would be fun to add ballast to a stock looking...
