i got this off super flea bay! it seems that every year i get a nitro rc car, use it for a few months and then sell it on. i just cant explain it, it just happens that way!(first was a hpi mt2, then a cen funfacter subaru, then a tamiya nitro blaster). anyway when i got this home i took the body off to find that the previous owner had really gone to town with the throttle and brake linkages, full throttle and the carb would only open half way, full brake and well............nothing! after a bit of fiddling my brother sorted it out as im no good with nitro engines. it fires up a treat and sings better than britney spears! i love the sound the engine makes but im not so keen on the smell, maybe i might keep this one, who knows??????

holes for eyes? smelly engine! oops i did it again!

Sweet buddy, I do that same thing with Nitro cars...they wear out rather quickly so I sell them just before they die and become un-reliable. They are fun while they last though lol!

Cool, nitro cars should never be shelf queens. I go through a nitro faze, get sick of the maintenance then sell up and go electric, then miss the noise and smell of nitro and the cycle starts all over again! Just wish Tamiya would release 1/10 nitro kits instead of XBG!
