Thread: RCing fun!

  1. #1

    Default RCing fun!

    So anyone here do any RCing? If so list what you've got and perhaps some pics would be good as well. I've got the following...

    a) Traxxas Slayer Pro 3.3, stock
    b) Traxxas Revo 3.3, stock
    c) HPI Savage XL K5.9, stock
    d) HPI Savage X with Axial .28 engine

    I also had an HPI Baja 5T but got rid of it as well as some electric one's and a Jato 3.3Attachment 27456Attachment 27457Attachment 27458Attachment 27459

    You've got a nice set there! I've always loved RC cars as a kid so about 4 or 5 years ago I stepped up and got a savage 4.3 and love it!
    How do you like the revo btw?? I heard they are pretty nasty. I tried to get mine running the other day and had a problem. It would start like normal then just take off at full throttle like crazy then kill itself. It did it over and over again and finally stopped starting. It was really frustrating so I had to put it away.

    I can't find pictures right now. I've got a blue and orange hummer body on it. I may have to take some more and post them!

    my brother and his roomate have thousands upon thousands invested in RC's, they build them piece by piece, and run em ragged so they're always breaking lol. they are a blast though, he's always trying to get me into it, but why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free right? lol

    I was a big fan of RC crawling but ended up spending too much on them and building shelf queens. here are my tamiya crawlers i built and eventually sold them on Ebay
