Default Finally pics of the whole NITRO fleet! Check em!

I took pictures for insurance purposes since i am moving next week. I don't think an insurance company would ever believe that someone owned 6 of these and that their replacement cost would be in the thousands. Some kids never grow up I guess. I am proud of them and I have put a lot of time and money into each one.

Oh, and it doesn't matter how many tires I glue or the years I have been in this hobby; I cannot glue 1/8 buggy tires for squat.

I hope you like em!

From far left to right-

X-factor, Savage, X-factor, LST 1.5, Giga Crusher DF, Sportwerks Mayhem





X-Factors, one mostly stock one highly modded

Naw, I hate to disappoint but the Crusher hasn't been run yet... I didn't have time to get radio gear in it. I will reconvene when I get a little settled in at the new diggs.

HPI Super Mudders on Ofna offset 17mm truck wheels. I have never seen the Super Mudders before, but I REALLY REALLY LIKE them. They are a standard Maxx size tire.

Ya, they are friggen sweet... Those nubz were just too dang narrow for the truck. I wanted a little more control and stability with it. Plus I demoted my Savage from racer status to basher status so I needed some meatier tires.

You should of added a tie option haha. I couldnt choose between the lst and the modified x-factor. I voted for the lst just cause its more of something I would have.

I HATE gluing buggy wheels... At least MT wheels, you get this nice channel for the glue to go in and distribute. Buggy wheels just give you that outer lip and it's SO easy to use too much. I would rather be a little messy and use a little too much then have a tire come off a rim I guess. Those tires will never go off of those rims ever.

That's a really tough call for me between the LST and the Savage... I'd have to see them in motion to make a final decision..

(ahem, ahem... Videos!!, cough, cough, ahem....)
