What are you looking for specifically? We here in OKC started racing 1/8 Late models at Competition R/C last season. All I can saw is what a blast to drive! The class is set-up as a $500 claimer to prevent anyone from coming in with a $1500 car. Most are using OFNA chassis because of the price point. Let me know what you need in the way of info.

That's right! There are about 35 drivers so far ready to run them this summer in OKC. Should be a blast.

Have you gotten the bag yet? It looks awesome but I have yet to see one in person. I am a little leery because of the price. It looks to me like it is about 1/2 the price of everything else that is out there. I cann't seem to find any good detailed pictures of it an any site either.

When i took the bag out of the box and began to assemble it I was very impressed. It was put together much more durable than i had expected. I was very pleased. It was actually nicer than i had hoped for, especially since it's about 150 dollars cheaper than the f8 by team magic once you buy a radio bag and starter box bag. The carton drawers are very thick and slide in and out fairly easy even with a lot of weight in them.


The only downfall is the weight. After organizing all of my tools and filling up all of my plastic fishing containers(you will nneed) and putting all of my tools, parts etc.. the bag is very heavy. The retractable handle isn't as sturdy as need be when pulled all of the way out and lifting one end with all that weight. It will be a monster to get in and out of the bed of my Avalanche. However, those 2 negatives aside, I would purchase it all ovwer again in a minute. You will definitely have to show it some TLC and not be rough with it, but if you lift it in and out properly and take your time when getting stuff in and out, i think it will last you a long time.

I will try to post some pics with all of my stuff in it later.

I bought mine from Carolinas RC. Free shipping and 5.00 coupon this month!
Received in 3 days -

And, you will feel like a walking billboard , says OFNA everywhere
