Here is my semi broken in TRF801x. I still have to paint the shell, not sure what scheme to go for yet.
This was another hugely enjoyable build. All the parts are of the highest quality and this thing is a monster!
I've just started breaking in the motor,l fired up 1st time, and look forward to running this in the spring. When this thing is running I just cannot believe how loud it is!!! I love it!
Sure, it’s messy, complicated, fiddly, will probably be a pain in the backside to keep tuned etc etc... but end of the day it’s a beautiful Tamiya TRF model that I'm happy to have in my collection!

That's awesome. I still have some nitro cars but haven't run them in years. The best part about nitro cars is the smell of burning fuel! I loved that! Looks like you did a real nice job building this one. Should be a lot of fun to blast around!

Oh, and it's nice that we can see you in the 4th and 5th photo. Unintentional I'm sure, but it's a mirror image of a lot of us dudes taking pictures of our cars/trucks. Pretty cool.

not sure what engine you've got there, but a quality modern .21 nitro engine is a lot less fiddly than the old days. My Ninja engines (Mugen owned, OS made) barely need any tuning at all once set. Just use quality fuel and always run the engine dry, then use some good afterun oil and you cant go wrong

Looks like a fun machine. I just sold my Nitrage after about a year of fun with it

Very nice, I used to race Inferno's locally about 15 years ago... Loved the smell, noise and fun. You're right Nitro can be a bit of a pain.. But when its running well they are SOOOO much fun
