Wow Hasbro has a nitro RC? Must be Canadian only, no way American are smart enough to buy a nitro RC from Hasbro and not get hurt and sue them

Hasbro has 2 of them they sell, they have been out for a while now. Well over a year at least and i think hobby town usa is the one that sells the parts.

Too bad its an XRC, but anything to further the hobby is a welcome sight for me. Maybe if the main stream RC companies dropped thier price for their bottom of the line products, we would see more of this happening, so we can obtain parts at an even cheaper price and more availability. ANYTHING to get rid of them cheezy $9.99 electric rc's made in china that end up in the landfill sites after a week of use... Such a waste.[]

Cheers.
