You were not kidding about wanting to do it right the first time. Saying you got a nice setup is a understatement.

This thing has a lot more moving mechanical parts than im used to. I have a very steep learning curve ahead of me. But i guess driving is not a skill you lose i hope LOL. The only gas race ever won was 10'th scale gas truck at Motorama YEARS and YEARS ago. They didn't even have a driver stand we just stood on the bleachers. I never had the budget or means to compete at much more than regional events as a kid, but im going to try to go to as many events as i can now.

Do you recommend a complete back up car or just a second parts car.

Thanks in advance.
In regards to who to buy from; I have made several purchases from www.amainhobbies.com and I am completely satisfied. Great web site, many shipping options including US mail (fast + cheap) and their support actually answer their emails. Great store for me so far. Stellar prices too.

Thanks MattFL

I have placed about 5-6 orders from them very helpful quick shipping and lots of in stock inventory.


Also The clockwork racing engine seems to make so serious power. Right out of the box i put the warmer on it for 15 minutes idled perfect and it wants to tear the tires off the rim. LOL Thats enough for today. Tomorrow im going to set the car up with a base setup for a local track and try to get some practice in this week.

pretty much what i thought. I have the same setup station, servos, radio. Except i have a better buggy and motor



J/K Your losi does look sweet. I love my mugen and i think about making it a bit lighter sometimes. Maybe aluminum axles and universal cups. I think titanium for me would be to expensive for what it would do for me. And i don't think it would make me a better driver.

How much did all the titanium run you?

When i went to my local hobby shop they had the newest Mugen car on display "damn impressive". I got the titanium stuff directly from lunsford I think its was $489 for everything, that includes all screws, hing pins, king pins, shock mounts and turnbuckles. I have a couple Novarossi plus 21-4C's but the local guys swear by the OS worlds motor. I want to learn on some powerful lower cost motors before i drop $500 and blow it up "OUCH" Im not sure if any of it is worth the cost. I just built my 8ight the same way i always built my electric cars as light as possible
