thanks!! im running a tamiya ta05 v2 so it will be a improvement exspecially couse the tamiya diffs hate me haha but im probably getting a tc6.1 worlds or a xray chassis in a couple months so i basically got it so it can hold me off tell i get a new and improved chassis

Nice. After a few years off, 3x world champ Spashett comes back and crushes Teesside. Mod and Stock. Black anodized though it may be, that's just a boring old 12R5.1. Cross pack and everything.

Kinda looks like a Dynamite version of a Reedy motor too...Funny that the report says hes running a TLR car... Great to see Spashett racing!

Yeah, he won a bunch of races with a Trinity chassis back in the day. He won his last world title with a Corally car. Last year he won a big race with a older CEFX chassis. His latest choice is a AE car, cool!

Actually I read that it is his own creation and not we or losi. And the trinity car he ran was a switchblade as I used to have the spashetti world's addition with the purple flake chassis. And Joel Johnson had the evolution 10 .

It's an Associated car. Spashetts buddy from the UK and AE have confirmed it.

I remember back in the day (when the magazine had the latest info...lol) He was THE MAN, at like every race.
That's cool to see him schoolin' again!
(I thought it seemed weird that Red RC had his car listed as a TLR....)
