i have GOT to get me one of these. i have to hop on the mini wagon now, in a few months my LHS will have finished its new indoor carpet road course. from what im hearing its going to be a big oval, but one end of the oval is going to be a series of small tight turns, if that makes sense, with the option to make it into a pure oval.

now i just have to talk the dude into running mini buggies and rc18t's, and mini coopers of course

is it possible that the picture that looks like the tiny nitro buggy actually was a prototype nitro buggy before they decided on electric? either way, if its a dummy head it will still look badass, motor heatsink or not

it not a nitro for sure it doesnt have any room for the glow plug....or for a wrench to fit in it but you have to admit it does look cooler with it than without itand the engine heatsink is actually a heatsink for the motor thats so cool

Be really cool if they ever made a 1/10 scale nitro just like the 777. And I don't mean the TR .15

Uh....what??

There are plenty of 4wd nitro 1/10's out there, so why would it be hard to make stuff fit??

Just a scaled sown replica of the 777...

Why do some of you keep insisting that it's Nitro? It Clearly says that it's ELECTRIC if you read the captioning.

We're not saying it's nitro. As you say it's stated clearly the car in the pic is electric. That would be fun also. We're just commenting on it would be "cooler" if it was nitro. Or a 1/10 nitro 777 would be better yet.

Personally I don't think I'd like that big of a heatsink sticking out. What about when ya end up upside down (hard), that's putting alot of force on the motor.

They probably just wanted to make it look like a nitro, so everybody and their brother would talk about it. Big controversy. And look,, ... I've seen this same thread with the same posts on almost every forum I go to.

You must remeber, a lot of people on these forums are the same people under different usernames. After all, we are all interested in keeping up to date with the latest in r/c.. haha

This is a bit off topic here but why would people want numerous accounts?

I'm a member of quite a few forums. But I try to keep my same screen name, or as close as possible. Member of different ones, b/c they aren't all busy at the same time. Plus some I just visit more for entertainment, and I only use certain ones for info I trust also.
