Ever been around full scale racing? If you're not a die hard fan, you...

RE: My first XR8 Kit

Great review of the car. I would be interested to see how these cars perform on a track against Mugen, Serpent, etc. It looks good. How is the support and customer service.

RE: One way front diff

How does using a reciever with anti-lock brakes effect the one-way? since it is pulsing the brakes, would I be able to use the more to help with speed entering corners?

Do you think the Power Racing cars can not be competitive? Not flaming you but I am curious as to why people bash this new car. I'm new to the field but I have seen a couple of excellent reviews of...

RE: PRP XR/80 is this 2 good 2B true ?

RE: PRP XR/80 is this 2 good 2B true ?

I'm looking at getting the OS .21 VZ-R (OS. 21). For my local track, a .21 is the largest displacement for an 1/8 scale engine. Of course the season ends in 3 weeks, so whatever I get now will be for...

RE: PRP XR/80 is this 2 good 2B true ?

I am really leaning towards the XR8 and an OS .21 engine. I plan on updating my electronics for my T-Maxx to the JR XS3 radio, it has multi-model memory so it will work well in the XR8. Although...

RE: PRP XR/80 is this 2 good 2B true ?

RE: PRP XR/80 is this 2 good 2B true ?

That's cool that you have your own track. There are no off-road tracks here in NoVA. I have a T-Maxx that I just bash around on the weekends on construction sites...lol. I will be getting a XR/80 by...
