when i started going to the track on sundays in early 2009ish as a(spectator)
.12 engines of the time were popping left an right,
i thought to my self no way in hell am i getting in to this sport.
Then one Sunday this guy brought out this wedge shaped thing
mrx4? with a ninja .21, blitz lola body first time down the straight i lost track of this ....thing
Second time down the straight ......i want one of those
1 year of saving later September 2010 i ordered my frist r/c car mugen mrx5
from kamikaze hobbies.
4 years later i can say as a 8th driver watching the .12 engines race
the engines are more reliable and (knowledge of engine maintenance has increased)
not defending the $$$.$$ of .12 engines.
There your Boutique brand names
and then there your other brand names
some spent alot a $$$$$$$$ to get were they are....R&D
some just took the blueprint infront them an improved on it.
now my next car is going to be electric 1/10th,
i can get (2)
electric motor/esc combos or (6)
for the price of one nitro engine only problem is the run time
