I hear ya Hyper. This was just a recent discussion on a Nitro heat only. Just to put the class back on the outdoor racing scene. Sorry, not intended to give the impression Electric would ever be...

If this takes off there will be a 1/10 nitro class.

There'll be enough for at least one heat. 6 of us were committed last year. At the very minimum the same 6 guys but I anticipate others will...

The Rit Dye won't work on any plated plastic. Only plastic that's flexible and can absorb a dye. Such as wheels and the noted grey Traxxas chassis. Plated plastic will snap if you bend it.

Indeed the times have changed. I miss those 90's Advance events too.

I'd be interested in doing some 1/8 low key on road nitro this summer. Not sure if you're referring to GT but that's what I...

The oil and nitro % is usually written on a sticker affixed to the container. I guess since the labels themselves are generic within a given brand.

No problem using an off road fuel in on road. I...

Yes, I would recommend to break in using the same fuel (and %) you plan to run with. I would also suggest the heat cycle method for break in.

No experience with RB Fuel, sorry.

Fyi, I loved...

I bought this radio last year as a throw around basher. No problems and works fine. It does have a cheap plastic feel though. My only beef is that stupid throttle hold button on the handle. It's too...

The X patterns are definitely the way to go. They even hold up well in a heavier nitro car.

Take note though, depending on your chassis's you may need some wheel spacers to avoid rubbing on arms,...

That's unfortunate about the turn outs Dave. I guess the distance from, say, where the Whitby track was might be a bit of a deterrent for some. Also yes, seems most of the usual suspects have...

Speed's about the same as the Savox but I'll give you 'quieter' and 'smoother'.

You forgot however, to add the Futaba's twice as expensive.

I'll stick with the Savox. All my electric and 1/10...

I would test by method of elimination.

Pull the motor out and roll the car.

Chassis roll ok now? If yes, then could be your gear mesh or the clutch itself could be binding up.

If still no,...

Are you saying the pull start is hard to pull when the plug is in? But works ok when the plug is out? If so the motor may be hydro locking on you.

A couple things you could try.

You're welcome.

I should add that I backed mine with white not black.

Metallics in photos can be misleading. So you know, in real life there can be a hue change. Depending on the light and...

I am certainly stoked about this race. Can't remember the last time I raced outdoors but been far too long.

Is there a game plan for the weekend?...

If that's a 1/10 car on the track in that pic then it looks like the 1/8's could work too.

Awesome! Thank you, Pat.

I'm sure I'd be able to convince a few local racers to make the trek with me. It would certainly make my 11 hour round trip a bit cheaper :)

Thanks,
