Default Video: Racing my Tornado BB this weekend

Here is a video of me and a buddy playing around in front of my house this weekend. I am driving the bone stock Redcat Tornado BB buggy and my friend is driving a Team Associated street car with a Traxxas 2.5R. He obviously has better handling and much more power but still makes for some fun racing. This was the last race of the day and I was running on some pretty wore out tires so I was having some traction issues. Earlier in the day we had a couple really good back and forth races. The Tornado has to be the best $155 I have ever spent in the RC hobby.

I will be looking into that in the near future. Do any of the lightnings come with the .18 engine or are all of them the .16??
