I was into 1/10 RC Cars for a while, still have my T3 and my TC3. I never got into the Mini cars though.

I had an HPI Mini it used all of the 1/10 scale stuff inside thing just riped, they also made the HPI Nitro Mini...never tryed one of those.

Yeah the car doing 200+ is on a line to spin around and around and uses a fuel tank from control line airplanes, basicaly saying the faster it goes the more gas it trys to push into the motor. and also the gear was so big on that car that as you can see they had to spin it just to start it, and then keep spinning it to get it to move fast enough just to go under its own power.


But yeah if anyone is intrested in getting into one of these let me know I can hook you up with a deal, I know I have an extra remote around here somewhere....my great idea is to make one of these into a pan style rc car. get the weight down and out to the sides so it will handle like a dream. But if your looken to buy $100 + SH and I will send you the car and remote with all the things to make it work, you would just need a esc and bat. or make an offer, also for $10 more I will throw in a big block motor, witch got the HPI micro over 40mph. its almost too much power for inside your house...PM me or e-mail me if you have any questions

i actually raced on weekends and won a few times, but i found out that racing rc cars is almost as expensive as the real thing. i think i dropped about 2500 on those damn things.

Thats a kick ass pic.

Car and driver had one and at first they made it sound like it was a real car by the way they described it, then they said the single piston could rev up to 18k rpm DAMN



holy shit, I just downloaded that movie, shit that thing was fast. That thing was pulling so many G's it is not even funny. That must be one strong fuel line.

those are badass. my friend had an offroad one, but never cleaned the filter, so he fed up the engine pretty good.

do the bodys come painted? i saw somewhere that lead me to believe that they don't.
