I'm a racer at heart, not being able to afford to run the real thing this is as close as I get till I win lotto and buy myself a top fueller to get into work in :cool: .
1/10th scale nitro powered pro stock dragster.

About 2.5 seconds for a scale 1/4 mile (132 ft) @ around 70 mph - still room for improvement.

Trouble is 750, with all the tools on board you'll never get the nose up on that fueller. :)

Tools... ratchet key and a 12" shifter if the silicone and duct tape doesn't do it.

That looks cool but unsteerable. a mate of mine has a schumacher nitro monster truck with big wheels all round. we stuck 2 x 1 1/4" bsp barrel nipples on the front to keep the nose on the floor but found then that it was too quick for a human brain to control and disintegrated on contact with a lampost down the road from the workshop.

A friend of mine tried drag racing - he came in fourth with laddered tights (pantyhose)

You're right slingblade VERY unsteerable, especially when its sittin on the wheelie bar till half track. Point and shoot. LOL who put that lamp post there!

I reckon this bloke has one of THE BEST reaction times of any human being alive - check this out - 3D RC heli flying


Wanna see a 1/10 scale RC car jump a house & drive away?
