I can see us all in a parking lot with chalk making lanes and having a big loud generator in pick up bed charging up battery's.

That's actually a pretty cool toy. I'd definitely have fun ripping that thing on the street.

I have no clue about RC cars, but I bet my son would get a kick out of that thing! I want one...lol

Soo winter meets can happen and we just race these?
That's the plan, racing in parking garages.

My truck has an AC outlet, I'm ready to rock.

Which boat are you looking at? The M41 cat is sick.
I’ve been looking at the m41 off and on for a year, but recently moved to water front property so it really makes more sense now

So this is waaaaay too much fun. Met up with a few people this evening in Elmhurst. Truck went 2.85 on gps which is pretty quick for a stock rtr truck with stock gearing. I think I made better passes with the gps onboard. I’ll try to get some videos. For reference they are 1/10 scale so you run 132’ which is 1/10 of a 1/4 mile. Burn out are done on a carpet square to heat up the tires. I’m terrible at taking pictures and documenting stuff but I need too. I should start a spin off thread.

Also testing in front of my house today didn’t go so well as I whacked a mailbox 😂😂.
