I had the opportunity to run the RT-5 for the first time last Friday at Pegasus Hobbies. Gil Losi Jr was also on-hand to help out with the testing.

The truck had allot of traction right from the start. We made small adjustments to the truck after every run.

By the end of the day we had got the truck really good.

We will be going up to Hot Rod later this week to do some more testing on a hi-bite track to get ready for the Cactus.

The RT-5 will definitely turn heads at the Cactus!
