  • Anyone else into them?

    When I about 10, I used to have a few nitro cars - loved them!

    During the first lockdown I purchased a Traxxas Slash 4x4 brushless 3s Lipo, and absolutely love it!

  • Love them all.
    Had nitro cars, planes and helis. Still have a mint Hirobi chopper with an OS engine in it on the loft. I used to build and fly (mainly crash) planes but loved the engines more than the actual flying. Wish I had the time and space, maybe in the future.
    What cars did you have? Traxxas never disappoints.. T

  • Ha, I've got a garage full of old RC plane engines!

    Back in the early 90s, my Dad was crazy into them and they've been there since, mainly because he'd crash the planes.

    I used to have a few Carson and Losi models 1/12th (I think?)

    I have a young nephew now so it's given me a great opportunity to get back into it. I don't think I'll ever go nitro, however

  • Amazing, if you ever want to let them go then definitely give me a shout please.
    Nice, they must’ve been fun. Losi are still going strong and one of the best there is.
    Electric has progressed so far and is quieter, cleaner and easier to use so completely get you. Always a great excuse to get back into it, post some pics so I can get jealous ;)

  • Stuff here.

  • Was mad into trucks for a little while but then competitiveness of tenth touring got me, started in a nitro class but quickly found my way into electric. They were so much more competitive, however never was that consistent on the shorter courses (almost dispractict) so went back to tenth nitro. Then just kinda won't quite a lot lol, eventually fell out of it. Still got a few cars floating about. Last car was a hpi proceed, which is eighth scale, only used it a few times as there were never enough others in the class to make it work up in the North. But on its massive foams it really was a mad thing.
    Think most of the local clubs closed down due to noise complaints (from folk who bought new builds in a field on side of an a road, next to a rc car track) or lack of new growth.

  • Reviving this thread.

    Anyone flying in London?
