i hear that ringing noise in a lot of 1/5 scale videos but mostly with Nutech. I'm not familiar with the petrol engines but if it was nitro I would have thought one of the clutch springs on the flywheel snapped making that ringing noise.

The ringing sounds is a trait with these cars is the steel primary gears nothing to worry about! only when you don't hear the ringing it is

We have some great beaches here but on all the west coast in is 'Black Sand' (Iron sand) East coast has white sand but further to drive!

No doubt these Nutechs are tough machines, Like I said I haven't changed anything on the car except fitted a X-can exhaust and a few screws that have come out, there are some items that I have reported back to the factory for changes before production runs but nothing major!

We have our final race xmas bash meeting this Saturday at local track so will be getting my TB2 Race Pro car ready for that!
After that will be taking the Mega MT out for more bash sessions, so will post more vids soon[8D]

Nice sounds like weedeaters running around there. Still think nitro sounds better though.

+1, dudecat have a listen to my MT in my moos nutech thread and tell me nitro sounds better than an OBR full mod screaming at 20K with an unsilenced VRC pro

This is great to see,if its anything as good as the TB2 then i'll be happy,over here in the UK,the TB2 is known as the FTX Punisher and one guy has just sold his MCD RR to get one for racing as they're that well made,i'm also thinking of selling my Baja SS and getting one but i'd much prefer the truck if FTX take it on,my original plan when I got into largescale was the Smartech Titan but in the guise of the Carson Gas Devil,they were great but it seems that Nutech have bettered an already half decent truck with a superb chassis and turned it into a potential race winner.Well done Nutech and keep up the great progress...

That's true, I saw 2 more end user sold their MCD to get a FTX and post UK forums last night.
