Default RJ Speed 3.2 Sport revival 2024

Greetings, wanted to share this RJ Speed 3.2 Sport with everyone. Built this a couple years ago, and recently made some upgrades to it. Upgrades include vintage Speedworks Pole Position motor, Tekin G12 speed control, a 20T pinion gear, and a Whiplash GP 6-cell 3300mAH battery pack. The car has a vintage Futaba Magnum 2PL radio, body painted to look like Terry Labonte's stock car. This is a nice, fast, and good handling car at my local track... should be very fast with the pole position motor, reminds me a lot of the Bolink cars. Gonna go to the track soon. Have a good time with RC

Yes indeed, im definitely old school. The modern stuff is absolutely incredible, but old school is my home. The car is still fast, just not nuclear lipo brushless fast. Its almost like how some perceive a certain period Corvette as slower or slow. To the uninitiated ANY Corvette is a fast car so to speak. This RJ runs nice up at our local track. Good speed and lots of grip. Its a good car to learn with imho... Best wishes to all🏁🔧🙂

the old pan cars just work. iv got an old Bolink Eliminator, only i swapped over to brushless, it's got a 13.5 motor and runs a 2s lipo. iv never run it on a track, just empty parking lots and the street out in front of my house. iv let a few other people drive it, it's great at teaching throttle control.

Throttle control is so important. As a kid i always used way to much throttle, and steering for that matter. Even just a pan car and a silver can 540 you can get yourself into trouble! Smooth and steady, control before speed. Teaching the boy that. That brushless bolink must be a rocket ship...
