Default "Worlds 1st Mini Nitro Truck/Car"

Actually, the worlds 1st mini nitro truck/car was made about 7 months ago buy a good friend of ours (ours being [link=http://www.outkastrc.com.au]Outkast RC[/link]) named Geoff.

He took a Kyosho alpha and the awesome Traxxas 2.5R from a Revo and custom made a chassis and all other parts to create "The Worlds 1st Mini Nitro truck/car"

This is post is to show what can be done with a bit of incentive and creativity.

Don't believe us? Take a look at the 2 pictures below and then take a look at our gallery!

<<Just thinking about when the first nitro conversion came out for the Losi Mini-T. Then there was that Cox dune buggy around 1970 something.>>

Adgreed. SUB-LOGIC, you may have wanted to do some research on the topic before you jump to the conclusion that yours is the "first". Also, drop the TRX 2.5 and put something else in. I hate Revos, Maxxes, Traxxes except for the Nitro 4 Tec, my first RC.
All I can think of the is HPI RS4 Mini Nitro. I am sure the others are older, though.
