thanks for the help.

That's because that is an RB Rody V12 and I got it for $100 less than what they are going for now. Also the Rody .21s are expensive. Those are $500 and up. Now THATS expensive. My Mugen kit was only $50 more than the engine itself.

Joe-You will like that engine. Really fast and reliable. Surely if you don't have anything fast for 8th onroad racing you will be left in the dust, but if you aren't racing now and just wanting to mess around on the track fine. Also, there are some beginner classes where even a mild level engine you can win with. Anyway post pictures and let us know hows it goes.

Hello Joe,
Nice body. I'm guessing you're gonna be using Spektrum transmitter+
receiver ? Me too. I have tested them alot in my electro cars and they
work like a charm.
Just got done cutting my body, now I need to start painting
