Default Who said nitro was dead? My topend nitro rocket said its not.

Just thought I'd post a vid of my weekends accomplishment. This is the same car that ran at the ISC in 2009 with a fresh motor and some more gearing. It went 102 back then and knew it had more so I took it out of retirement and got to work. This proves nitro isn't dead. Just taking a vacation. Lol. Enjoy

Car - HPI Racer2
Motor - Novarossi 21 Flash 2010
Pipe - Novarossi 9886

Thanks NH. That's what I'm into. Realized I'm either going to jail or die if I kept at it with my bike so RC seems to be the safest alternative.
