    I had a tamiya ta04 subaru wrx rally car, 4 wheel belt drive then hopped it up with the full bearing kit, then a dr speed motor and esc wow that thing was fast back in the day (1998) gave it to my cousin after owning it for year or so. My 2wd vxl slash on 3s and 31/76 gearing is way faster though!

    funny you should say that. 2 of my friends started off in the hobby by going down that same road. one with a nitro 4tec and one with a nitro sport. which i believe used the same engine. those engines SUCKED! temperamental and unreliable. they had the same issue with the high speed needle, that thing would back itself out while you were driving. drove everybody nuts.

    did yours eat a lot of glow plugs to?
    respect your elders. we've been around longer and done more stupid things than you, therefore we're smarter

    I had a old rusty with the cheap chrome wheels with MSC, I though that thing was so cool when i got it. Thats the days when the hottest ESC on the market was the Novak Super Rooster. Brings back some classic memories, Just like if you threw anything in more powerful than the O so powerful 20 turn stinger you would strip idler gears like it was cool haha

    In 6th grade I got a Losi Mini-T and that's what started the addiction. I quit for a few years and picked up a HPI Savage XS SS so I guess you can also say that is my first RC or at least my second first RC lol.
