thats what i use. hey if you really want to know the truck, i found a good deal on the Adam Drake edition. it will be better, faster, tougher. but you have to build it(which in my opinion is the best part. hahaha) yeah check it out on ebay

yeah a place nearby comes in handy. you dont want to run out of fuel and have to either wait a week to get more or drive an hour and a half to get gas

not sure why tower doesnt sell losi. yeah the AD is graphite everything. which is lighter. which will make it quicker and faster. and probly tougher in most cases. you haev to build it though. and dont wait to make yours AD edition. if you can get one for cheaper, then go with the cheaper one. i mean its nicer. if you get the RTR and then make ti graphite over time, you will eb spending mroe money

and blue thunder fuel is fine. thats what i use.

They used to sell losi back when i first started RC, probably 9 years ago. They probably don't sell enough of losi stuff for it to be worth while. Everyone at my old track was running associated and I was the only losi guy. (by the way that was in NZ, so we had to order everything online from overseas)

yeah the dont have discounts like some places online do. yeah i think the reason tower quit selling losi is that losi is to much of a racing truck. and most people who run them ge tparts through their local track and hobby shops. everyone here does.

tracks are a blast when there are lots of people like you out there. i mean even if its just a tc layout with dirt and a few rough spots its fun. but over time when you build up jumps and faster areas, its more addictive than crack.

were did you see that nitros drag off the line? every nitro ive seen launches off the line. those things are rockets man. you wont be disapointed. i know a few guys who run them at my track. most guys do actually. they grab real hard. i mean they lift the front on demand basically. all that power onto 2 wheels. it will be real fast and quick.
