Is that a Rustler? They're not quite a truggy, they're a stadium truck  =]

 

I've had a few over the years and I've still got 4 or so, it's scary how fast they add up. Not sure I have pictures of most of them sadly :(.

  • 1/10th CEN Fun Factor (It was a strange sort of on and off road thing with a Subaru body)
  • 1/10th Chadori Buggy (These were cheap as chips and a lot of fun!)
  • 1/12th Mardave Rebel Racer
  • 1/10th Team Losi XXX Spec Buggy
  • 1/6th FG Marder 23cc Petrol Buggy (Later converted to an FG Beetle with a a new undertray, body and a tuned pipe)
  • 1/10th Traxxas T-Maxx 2.5 (Swapped the engine for a Sirio .18 before even starting it, it now has a .21 conversion with a HPI S-25 engine)
  • 1/8th HPI Savage SS (One of the original SS', fair few modifications over the years and a Dynamite Mach .26)
  • 1/10th Tamiya Mini M03
  • 1/12th HPI Wheely King
  • 1/10th HPI E-Firestorm

I don't think I've forgotten any but I'll add them if I remember. These days I still have the Savage, T-Maxx, Mini and the Firestorm.

I want to get the Savage back out as it's by far my favourite. However the last time I ran it I didn't run it out of fuel as I planned to use it the next day... That was roughly 2 years ago now so the engine needs stripping down but I think it's probably knackered.

I dug my Nitro Car out the other day, I keep contemplating repairing it and getting it going again, only thing putting me off is that a few years ago, I set fire to myself with the Nitro fuel, ended up in the burns unit for 2 weeks


Sorry I can't resist asking, did you get burns to 1/10th of your body?

spot on but i think its 1/24 scale but god its a quick little thing. the buggy (thunder Tiger) is a 1/8 and the traxxas is a 1/10. and you you are right its very quick and pops wheelies when going into second gear  ;D

the jatos are brilliant!

I've got the traxxas nitro rustler (the one below yours)... it came with a 2.5 but i blew that engine after a top speed run, so i put in a 3.3, the same as in your jato! and i can't keep the front wheels on the ground! i now zip tie two D batteries to the front of the bumper  :lol:  would be even better if i had a second gear! i had to upgrade the diff to an all metal one as the power from the 3.3 just munches the standard one up! 

its also got some big chunky off road tiers on it at the moment for off road driving:)
