I'm curious to see how really casual users react to the hassles of nitro, and then again also curious to see what hasbro does to make it as easy as possible for kids.

that thread is almost 2 years old
hasbro has tried to get that to market a couple of times and not been able to
the rc you say has too big of wheels is the ricochet
the wheels are big because it can drive either upside-down or right-side-up
if you look close you can see that it actually has a "body" on both sides
i always thought it was a fun concept
kinda disappointed that it never made it to stores

The Ricochet did make it to the stores. They also made a motorcycle using those wheels. That thing was a riot when I was like..12.

Recall : to much smoke and engine produces heat

well they did release them but not huge release. at the time no web site was done no manual could be found nothing it was like handing a loaded gun to a 3 year old. not very smart. so the recalled all the ones in stores and decided to bring it all back for 2008. they have got there but in gear and they seem to be a good idea now for new RC enthusiasts.

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_44...mpage_7/tm.htm if it does not take u to the last post go to the last post i have all the new links for there site, they have a how to brake in, everything on tape pretty much. this and that i think its gonna be doing good for all of us, to get our kids into it or if u have that pesky kid who won't leave u alone at the park or bashing spot.

Like said in the earlier post.
I cant wait when these things come out and people take them back to walmart telling them they cant get it to run right or they blew there engine up.
I honestly think by doing this its going to give the nitro scene a bad name.
Theres going to be so many people that dont know how to work those things and just going to say it stupid.
