I haven't run mine yet. I am in the process of changing the servos and I am looking in to getting spare tires for it. Also I want to get the BMW body set for it.....Kyosho probably wants a mint for it I bet. Also looking into putting a Nova Rossi engine in the car. I'll eventually run mine at CP....later this year as I get out to the track once a month if I'm lucky.

LOL...I found tires, imported by GSracing. They are called Tarmac II. Tried to get some today, but they were out. GS said they had some on the way......I would rather have foam for CP and Rev, but Rubber will do fine

We don't have the BMW body instock yet, but It will retail for about$100.00. That is fully stickered painted and drilled. all you need to do is put the body on the car....lol

When you are changing out the servos.... think about adding real turnbuckles... The 'threaded wires' that come with the car are a nightmare to tune with. I got some Lunsford Ti turnbuckles for the MP 7.5 and they adjust like a turnbuckle is suppose to.

Oh, yeah.... I got the BMW bodied car and immediately stripped off most of the big stickers... Can't wait for a clear body so that I can paint my colors on it..

Default racing action

This past Sunday we held our first heats and mains for the 1:8 scale Kyosho Inferno GTs and similar cars. WOW was it exciting, after a Spektrum glitch (yes I know) took me out earlier, we still had a great race!

Billy Bowerman of SpeedWorld in Roseville, our partner, took first place!

here are some photos/pictures from the races - http://www.rivercityrc.org/records/feb12/

let me know what you think!

be sure to check out the rest of the website while you are there!

see you on the track!!!
