Default Is the 1/10 Nitro Onroad dead?

Hi guys, back to this forum after more than 8 years.

Used to enjoy the 1/10 GP onroad at RCMC and turf city running the MTX4R. Was crazy good fun back then.

Back to my question, is the 1/10 nitro class dead?

I loved the 1/10 class for its affordability(in terms of spares,tires,etc) and less demanding from the driver compared to the 1/8th class (not very pro mah hehe)
I also hated the 1/8th class when i chip the tires when i accidentally ride the kerbs (expensive tires to be exact) due to my unskillness haha.

Glad to see the hobby is still around and there races still on going. Would love to hop back onto the nitro onroad scene and start again but seems like my only option is the 1/8th class? I love racing but i'm definitely no match for fast racers like Nelson Lee and Wuikiat 😥😥 (names that i remember from back then and saw them in the recent race results)

Thanks!

nice to see you again, maskedrider! seems like you still active in this rc hobby?

I'm pretty sure the RRR can run again, but spares availability and competitiveness of the RRR in today's current gen of 1/10, that one i'm not sure. haha

The Sirio engines seems to have closed down too... Spares for the engine also not sure.

Your friend all waiting for someone to start back only.... Are you going to be the firestarter for them? Haha
