Default Some old 1/4 scale sprint car footage

Found this on an old tape from the early 90's, some guys messing around with gas 1/4 scale sprint cars at the old Marbles Hobby Shop track...


not real race footage, more playing and testing out of the cars on a small asphalt track...

To bad that video ended as soon as the cars were starting to rip.

Yeah, I had a few Quick Draw Sprinters back in the day. Late 80's Early 90's. I wish the club didn't fiz out. With all the engine mods these days, man, I only wish. I have a HPI Baja 5B now. We (18 of us) run a dirt oval, but still miss the old school sprinters. Very realistic, with NO plastic...lol

Thanks for posting that Video. A blast from the past...
