    RE: Traxxas RTR 1/8 NRHA Funny Car Race Replica

    Most of the excitement of a real funny car is the sound and burn outs.  Too bad this isn't nitro.   I had an Associated nitro monster truck w/reverse.
    It was so fun to do burn outs then reverse back to the line and burn out again. 

    It would be cool to install a drag chute. Oh well, I'll stick to pro4 SC

    im not really a nitro guy, but i totally agree.


    a 2wd electric funny car. i can see it now, it gets bought cause it looks cool. gets used once or twice, the user gets bored as hell cause it only go in a straight line. parks it and never uses it again. stupid

    Looks interesting, I wonder what the price range is? Looks like you have to buy the timing thing separate so I'm thinking the whole package might be a bit pricey.

    kind of a pointless and mostly useless but ok.
    i call shenanigans on the add though, i don't think the real RC car is pictured.  i think they used the real car and photoshopped a radio behind it.  very missleading
    Speaking on nothing makes you a stunt. I'll tell you right here yo I won't front.

    I can't believe their only claiming 70+mph. Hell, their stadium truck does that.

    good point that seems kinda odd
    With great speed comes greater repair bills.

    idk, i was thinking the same thing. to clean, to exact, to replicated, to real looking. traxxas just doesn't have that in'm, when it comes to detailing body's they're pretty lazy. the only thing that has me thinking it's an RC is the front rim and the braces on the rear spoiler are missing

    still hoping this is an april fools joke that got leaked early

    Here in the states the quickest is 121 mph done last year at rockingham.. And by the way for people who think this is boring trying to get a car to stay straight at these speeds is not as easy as you think Come and visit the web site International Model Drag Racing Association you,ll see what we run and and all about the national events we hold across the staes

    Amen brother. Don't knock it until you have tried it guys!!
    70 mph in 132 feet is not to bad but it can and will do better.

    Go fast, turn left, repeat as needed!!!
    My spelling sucks, get over it!!!

    traxxas claims everything they make can do 70mph you just need batteries and gearing, not everycar can handle that speed. My rustler claimed 70mph i set it up to do 70 but no not even close, down hill with a tail wind maybe it would hit 70
    yes its fast, no you cant drive it!

    if you can control it, its to slow
