Default 1/10 Exceed RC Nitro Gas Powered car

hey guys,

i had an R40 a few years back and it finally ran its course, i have been out of the hobby since 2010, how ever before i stopped i had broken in a red dot evo3 and never used it due to the lack of parts for the hpi R40, so i want a cheap entry car and this seems to be a good one from what i read, how ever would this engine fit into this car ?

Thanks

Mike

If i didnt just get a deal on an nt1 i might have got one of those actually. looks real good for the price and there are lots of parts available for it from the other G4 variants.
wonder if there is a kit only version.

+1! Solid car. No bling. I would suggest front cvds. It actually is a good bang for the buck. The frp radio deck has been used as a tuning option on pro level cars.

If you are looking for a RTR I recommend the Team Magic G4JR you will have to buy a charger for the receiver pack that comes with the car and a starter box.

http://www.wolfhobbies.com/1_10_Gas_...R_Touring.html

The green car is a G4JR I did change the servo's and receiver I used my Futaba radio that's the only changes that I made for that race. I broke during the race I was trying to get the attention of my pit man and hit the boards, he's in the red shorts in front of the trucks.
