Hey Miles... I think I saw your post that said you're getting out of onroad.. is that true?!
Yea on road is starting to die because of how competitive it is getting around our area i mean jason schreffler and larry fairtrace are doing more off road now and they are some of the best electric on road drivers on the east coast and i heard jeff cuffs does off road but don't worry i will have an on road car next year so i can switch it up every month or so

I c I c. I don't think onroad nitro is dying in the area just yet (compare the offroad / onroad results at Blue Diamond website) but can't argue that it's gotten hyper competitive. Hope to race with you again next year though.

To OP.. sorry about thread hijacking.

you drive in a straight line to the left...really fast, then you have to turn around and go as fast as you can the other way...

repeat steps 1 and 2, then repeat, then repeat.....and so on and so on....

now, once you wake up from boredom.... get yourself an off road, find a nice dirt area with hills, bumps, and jumps etc......and enjoy bashing!!!


onroads need a track to have even a little bit of fun.

Very true..like everyone else I started off bashing way back in the day but it gets old and it got old to me FAST. Cops always kicking us out, drunk late night a**holes always trying to run cars over ... just too much drama.

Its more stressful and more money to race but its worth it...it is a ton of fun on a track and learning the car for what it was designed for.

But if bashing is what youa are going to stick to then I suggest that you stick with an HPI or whatever brand your local store backs the most (Associated, HPI etc etc).

Good luck!

Onroad bashing gets boring after a while. I recommend racing at a track if there's one close to where you live. Racing onroad is quite a rush because of how fast these cars can go. IMO bashing would be more fun if you went off road.
