RE: HPI Baja, is it worth the money?

I think that $1200 for a 5T is a bargain. I spent just as much for my kids Losi 8 2.0 roller, after buying the engine, pipe, radio, and starter box. The 5T starts with 2 pulls every time, excellent...

RE: engine not starting

Sounds like you have low compression, it should be over 100 psi. If not, is probably time for a new top end (piston/ring, if cylinder is not damaged) . Check your air filter too, and make sure is...

RE: Help stay nitro or convert to electric

I'd take nitros over electrics anytime. Once you understand basic engine tuning and diagnosis, nitros are easy to run and maintain. Mechanical moving parts are easy to repair or replace, when...

Associated RC8T

This thing is a piece of garbage. WalMart grade RC plastic body shocks, crappy radio (antena fell appart), OK motor. This thing is NOT ready to run, unlike the Losi, the air filter needs oil or...
