Default redcat tornado vs. losi 8ight lolJ

My 5 yr. old son has a tornado bb with the sh engine. I have a losi 8ight with the 427. Once the tornado shifts, it is faster than the losi.
Funny stuff.

However I would like to see a Hurricane XP go up against a Losi 8ight, now that would be something to watch!! Make sure the Hurricane XP is tuned correct and has the right pipe and other pieces and I bet it could compete!!

My cane is quite fast too and its all stock cept for the air filter. I believe that the 1/8 scale redcats are far superior in terms of performance, not saying that the 1/10 scale redcats are bad, its just that the larger scale is a huge difference.

He has to start sometime. It was either the rc car or start racing go-carts. I went with the rc car.
