Default Torco racing fuel

I'm sure many of you are drag racing fans and are very familiar with Torco Racing Fuels-the most respected name in nitro. Who would be interested in Torco making RC racing fuel?

I got an email from Torco today and they have been looking into RC nitro for some time now. I was told they will be deciding soon if they will be entering the market.

I sure hope so. The RC industry needs a way to reach out and expand to those already interested in racing. What better way then having Melanie Troxel, J.R. Todd, and Mike Ashley promoting Torco RC Racing Fuel to all of the NHRA and IHRA fans on ESPN?!

We should probably have every one inrtrested in this fuel e-mail Torco and let them know. Just how many people would like them to have a RC fuel.

On a similar note I've often wondered what the minds at Maxxis could come up with for R/C tires

That would be neat if names from the 1:1 world started making an entrance into R/C. It'd show R/C racing as more of a mainstream motorsport instead of the self-contained industry it is.

Feel free to spread this news to other sites you guys frequent. Maybe we can get a groundswell of interest that Torco won't be able to deny. As they say, "If the people lead, the leaders will follow..."
