    well, i thought id start a thread in the white zone on nitro rc cars ( a hopped up, mini 2stroke that runs on nitro fuel.) well i guess its more of a desiel, cause they have glow plugs. but anyway, if you have nitro cars post pics here, not really somthing for the pic thread. i have a smartech car (seen at youtube) and a duratrax nitro evader st, and i just bought this

    a high end model (or so im told) so plugging a glo starter in, and pulling for days, just a push on the remote! i attached images of the 2 cars i have now (both need to be serviced before being able to run.) and if there are any nitro junkies, please dont make fun, i know theyre about as clean as Mike Row, after filming.:smile:

    the small one is the smartech (fast road car)

    big car is an offroad truck nitro evader st by duratrax
    (not as fast, but tears up the dirt)

    thanks for loooking! please comment, and its a fun hobby, but the cars have more issues than the happy times, hit a curb, and boom! you have a broken suspension (most cars including mine go about 50-60 mph.)

    hey guys, if you want any more pics let me know, i got suspended for kicking the kid;s butt that tried to break into my shed, kicked my ma's car, and turned off my power, so im suspended for 2 weeks. , but my dad was cool about it, and my ma didnt seem 2 care! (1st time in 14 yrs lol)my eyebrow was soo high on my head, that it almost fell off lol. so if ya have questions just ask, its a great hobby! and although not as bulet proof as the happytimes, they arew a blast to jump, and on my truck, i can do backflips, if i put a tube of quarters on the back lol!

    thanks, i never thought id say this (considering i love to ride my bikes) but i hope it snows, after the 1st 5 break in tanks, so i can set up some snow ramps, snow is the best cushion for ramps, u could land on 1 wheel, and it will just sink! and im thinking of getting a multi channell controller, getting some servos, and making a mini snow plow lol.

    ok guys, i just took out the car, and did 1/2 of a break in tank, before i froze (car ran great though lol) and that thing is fun! it has like the best supension ever!, the only time it flipped, is when i did a dukes of hazzard stop, (going sideways) and i hut a chunk of ice, and it rolled. but it never died even when it was sitting upsidedown! i love this car! once my electric start charges back up, ill take some vids.
