Thanks man! Didn't have that much time with the car and I have not race on road for a couple of years but the X3 handle great. I qualify 6th in the A but finish 3rd over all with RTR Force .28 that I pull out of my Ultra GT about 4 years ago. I just try to stay consistence and out of the way of the fast guys with the big motors and off the boards.

Team RedBull's New Ofna X3 Takes Pole at Airtronics Grand Prix. Good job Steve ! I'm very impressed with what I saw yesterday.

I wish the Force .28's had a harder connecting pin and piston. These are cheap rocket ships.... for about a gallon

Mine has a lot more than a gallon.

Try about 5 gallons.

I was giving it everything I had. I thought I was going to blow rod a few time at the end of the straight.

Any how she still looks pretty after a weekend of racing. Thank you for all the help and support from my fellow racers. I had a blast.

I hope it is stronger than the team c bec it looks like some parts are from it

Once again, none of the parts are the same as teamC, the two companies produce their own parts.

Good to know this
I would not like to buy a kit and have to replace the diff case and carry a bunch of gears
If it is as sturdy as the dm1 the new car is going to be a contender


Congratulations on the podium finish with a rtr 28 on this new car
It is a brute of a motor but does not have the powerband of the other motors
Just shows the capability of the car and driver. Congrats

Anyone have videos and more pics?

Maybe the damage is on the rear as racers were putting him up to 3rd. That's a different strategy but seems effective.
