Oh Good lord I wouldn't even of thought of that!!!

You'd literally never find it. Or wouldn't want to wrapping out at 30k rpms for an entire tank!

Seriously guys, that's awesome. If I remember right Speicher isn't that far from Ashraf or Balad which is where I was my 1st tour in 2004. Wasn't into RC back then and our 1SG probably wouldnt of let us have em anyway but that is seriously awesome!!!


Keep your ass above your head as we were told!

Default Iraq Track

Thanks for all the good comments... Its took three months to build and when after it rained I wheeled the Ford over the track to compact the lanes. The lay out is awesome and lap times are 52 sec. I run the Losi 2.0 E, xxxt-cr and they run great with high bite set up. I have a AMB20 system that works great. Will have to run motor fans as summer creeps around but no big issues. I raced Nitro / Elec in Colorado Springs and I miss it but Elec keep is less maintenance and I keep getting better for when return and race Nitro. I had my family send my E cars postal mail to APO and it takes 7-10 days. Half of my room is my workshop and with near beer and IPOD I stay bizzy the night before race day. Thanks

Ya, wouldn't want a buggy to get into enemy Iraqi hands, can you imagine the IED they could make out of one of those.

That's a pretty tasteless/ignorant comment, don't you think?
