    RE: RE:

    I dunno about the 3.3, but for the body, just goto Tower (or one of the other larger online hobby stores) and find the body ya want that's 1/10 - 200mm.. Should be able to find just about any make/style ya want!

    RE:

    thanks has anyone used a traxxas 3.3? how much better would it be than the OS .18? would the hpi clutch then work with the traxxas? also with a more powerful engine would the car need other upgrades?

    RE:

    Depending on which OS .18 your comparing it to, it may out perform the TRX 3.3?? The OS .18 TZ in particular.. Also the TRX only comes in a slide carb, so make sure the Lightning can accomodate a slide carb, if it doesnt already.. As for the clutch, Traxxas also uses an odd clutchbell on their nitros.. They're alot thinner (in the clutch/bell area) than most standard clutch bells, so you'll have to use a Traxxas clutch and clutchbell with the TRX engine.. That's about the extint of my knowledge on the 3.3 and OS engines.. Hopefully others who have better info on the performance will chime in as well.. Good luck!

    RE:

    Hey guys, just bought the Lightning VX. Haven;'t broke it in yet, thinking of doing that today. Anybody on here from NC? Would love to get into a club or on a team. I am pretty experienced with the nitro cars, have owned a couple, but been a while. Will let you know progress as it happens. I love opinions as well, so any good ideas are always welcome. Hope to be talking with you guys soon.

    RE:



    i am new to the nitro rc world.  i purchased a redcat racing lightning str on ebay and it should be here in a couple days.  how does the body replacement work?  can i buy almost any 1/10 body and make it fit? do most 1/10 cars have the same wheel base?

    I felt the same way after looking at mine since xmas. Got fuel, ran like crap, couldn't tune, i checked it over but somehow AFTER looking at it for 6 months on a shelf I find i'm missing a screw in my exhaust manifold. Did have it running and bumped it into a parked car tire. bam, front suspension is gone.

    Well that was a fun 200$ or whatever it cost the girlfriend.
