Some cheap stupid one I got when I got my Nitrage at my LHS.

Its called Super Thermal Protected BC - 725A Ni-Mh, Ni-Cd Battery Charger.

I has one light, red to say its on. Thats it.

I dont really need a great charger because I only have 1 battery to charge and thats for the roto start.

I need to get hangers to put my Nitrage up on teh wall, I dont like this stand. I use that Duratrax thingy, useless.

I NEVER LEAVE MY RC THIGYS IN THE GARAGE.!

I cant lol, my Nitrage is always with me, in my room, where I can see it

I dont trust my dad and brother lol.

It will desperately need to be cleaned tomorrow.

First it needs to be desperately driven

Trying to find an old peice of fuel tubing, my antenna tube keeps coming out.

I wonder why I have problems with everything Duratrax makes. :S ?

Nice deal on the savage btw.

Id buy the revo in a second if it was 1/8 scale.! I love the look of that truck.!

giaz

looking at the list, there only seems to be two hop-up options included in the kit version namely 1) stabilizer set and 2) front brake set.

these are not expensive parts and don't really go towards justifying the high cost price of the kit form.

i prefer the price of the rtr version and could live with some disassembly to get the truggy into it's best starting condition. i would normally strip down the engine, differentials and shock to have a good look before the first run and break-in procedure anyway.

kit form comes less, a) tires, b) radio gear, c) starter gearbox, d) electric hand-held-starter, e) glow plug heater, f) painted body shell

nauticar, can you add any more comments?

Alright heres the break down of what happened at the track.

3 Nitrages, mine was the last one standing

RCpowerhorses starter system took a dump on him.
And another kid destroyed his clutch.

I ended up spending more than 5 hours at the track, 1 more gallon through, and my engine is not dying anymore, I swear this thing has a mind of its own.

Me and RC drag raced and mine absoloutely FLEW

Need more Nitro tho now.

Also was running good temps, only thing, I need 2 new a - arms lol, the ones I have are alright, but the screw stripped the inner's of them.

Mine was absoloutely amazing today

Gotta wait for a Sit rep from RC about his.

His went through id say about 6 - 7 tanks before the 1 way bearing in his roto starter blew.

Gonna clean mine down now
