It is neat if you want to have fun spec racing it.. I can see that being a lot of fun..

But I probably won't buy it for other than that reason, since I'd prefer a kit..

Nothing wrong with it, just personal preference..

"sure it started a new racing class" - hmm that seems pretty innovative

"here today gone tomorrow" - Been here for awhile and is as strong as ever

It is very popular at race tracks right now, definitively not going anywhere just yet.

Second it is one of the best bashers you can buy, pretty much unbreakable and a heck of a lot of fun to drive.

just got back from the hobby shop. they had a summit on display, it is awsome. the body is thicker than some others and the 775 motor is huge. the guy there was trying to get us to get it but i dont like revos or revo based products. i got a new camera on the way home, now i should be posting more pics and vids, it has a li-ion battery so no more AA's to replace

Holy...

Wow.

I think I might've broken 25 with my TB-02 and black can. [&:][&:][&:]

105? That's really moving! What's the speed record for electrics anyway?

last i checked it was 123 point somthing mph. in other news i picked up a copy of xtreme rc cars at the hobby shop and got to looking at it this morning, there is an arcticle that some of you will be interested in. "project thumper", its a 4-stroke nitro cr-01 unimoger. ill either scan the pages or take pics of them later. also at the hobby shop there was a street rc18t i think it was, it had all alumium short of a custom chassis. they wanted $250 bucks for it![:@] if was less i would have tried to get it but $250 plus motor, esc, and radio is a little much.

Man that's crazy fast... I wonder how long you can stay in radio range at that speed? [&:]

Radio range is basically until you cannot see it anymore. I have some 140 mph+ airplanes and sometimes you can't even see it, but you still have range.

The only way I can fly it is muscle memory (when I am turning back without seeing the plane)
