After moving here to the UK - I believe you can fit any motor in any car. There are guys here running .21's in their 1/10 scale cars here. In the US, you just don't see people doing it.

Can you post a pic?

Some people here, run 25% rac blend nitro in their 1/10 scale touring cars. Race blend here, is not the same buying the Blue Thinder race blend. It is less oil in it here to get more RPMS out of the motor.

They run .15 motors with that fuel - They get same speed as the 1/6 scale .21's get out of their cars. It is insanely fast.

he has alot of tourqe for a 1/10 touring car it has 2.3hp or around there. dat causes it to loose grip easy and to make burn outs easy. i doubt you could get any kind of smoke off your truck to big no enough hp

A touring cars can burn out with a .15 - when you put a .21 in it, that is insane but very cool.

I have a schumacher nitro fusion and it can do donuts and spin all 4 tires and no smoke. Infact I wore out a set of venom radials in 1 outing and still no smoke. I think there is something you can put on the ground to make the wheels smoke. I have seen pics but I don't know what they use.

I don't think that is smoke. It looks like foam or something to make is look like his car is smoking. There is not marks on the ground nor is there smoke coming from the pip on the other side.

I agree on the no marks on ground. Does look like cotton balls or something like that. Still looks cool though....

I have seen many burnouts and none look like that. Like stated above there is no smoke on the other side of the car and it just doesnt look right. I have tried to get the Maxx and the MBX to make some smoke but all with no luck. I can get them to leave some nice rubber patches on the concrete but never any smoke. You can use water to help get the tires spinning or alcohol but I just cant get any smoke. I think it has something to do with the rubber compund used in RC tires.

no doubt that is fake smoke
i agree its the compound which makes smoke hard to get
smoke doesnt just clump off like that straight away and the car would take off before all 4 wheels spun that much smoke.
i went to the drag racing last night, saw a funny car do a 6.03 second run, a state record.

if you put oil on your tires along with oil on the ground it should do it. and also you could hold your front end while holding to gas so it can not go anywhere and it should smoke.

Yeah the main person on wildhobbies said it is fake, and now i totally agree, because there are two pics from different angles. The "smoke" is the exact same on both pics.

Thats the Answer...

you want smoke.. get a electric and get some bleach.. spray the tires.. and run it against a wall.. it will smoke.. make sure to do it with tires you plan not to use. to do a burn out.. you need a slick surface... .. there is a great smoke video on trilordy of an 1/8th onroad. it looks really really nice. a yellow I think BMW sedan body or mercedes body.

Tracks for smoky burn outs you use bleach to get that effect. as for a truck to do it? good luck... you going to need some major power. it would be easier to do it in a 2wd stadium. I have only seen one 4wd truck do burnouts on concrete with 35 dunlops.. *real truck, and it had to had something under it's hood that was powering such big wheels to such high speeds*
