Hello

Rating batteries now is a snap! Hook them up, set the
discharged, and it's all automatic. Choose the rating: Amp hour, watt hour, or minutes

Guido.

When you get addicted to RCing, No 12 step program will help. Raced 1/10 scale Nitro stadium trucks and touring cars for about twelve years. Would be afraid to even guess how many thousands of dollars I spent on the hobby.

The Nitro powered car, truck and buggy models are about gone. With the advancement of batteries and brushless motors in the past few years has put a hurting on Nitro. Even Traxxas has about gave up on gas models.

Hello Mule Meat,

Last time we races was in 1991 nationals in Texas. 1/10 scale
gas. Never got into the gas ones. My ears would not take the
noise. Had a battery sponsor, wan not cheap then,factory all
worship killed it! One fa Tory sponsored guy, gave away his
car after the race.

Guido.

We raced in NC, SC, VA, OH and IN. We did not have sponors either. The local hobby shop where we did 75% of our business gave us small items like a set of tires, glow plugs, a gallon of Nitro fuel etc but no cash. We did wear his shops Tshirts and put his stickers on our cars as a small thank you to him.

Been kicking around for a couple of years with the idea of building a 1/4 scale hydro boat powered by a weed whacker engine. But then again that 65+ mph Traxxas 3.3 nitro Jato has been doing some serious tugging also.
