    Yeah dude. I have a 1:10 Scale Kyosho Lazer zx5 with a KMC carbon fibre conversion kit. I usually run 3S lipos 8T brushless hobbyking motor and ESC. Not after buying any more. RC is even more expensive than vaping.

    Since we are talking about rc cars we had in the past, i have a 1/10th tamiya ta-05, with a mambamax ESC, mamba 4500kv/7700kv brushless motor, full penguin RC carbon fibre body, alloy parts etc etc, full suspension setup, AWD with aramid drive belts, solid rear axle, centre one way, and front one way, with of course the obligatory mr2 shell on it, with the headlights and brake lights and indicators (all function eg when brakes applied it lights up, when you steer left it indicates left etc etc), and a Spectrum DX2.0 rc remote. Can handle up to 2 different cars without needing a different radio, just swap channels and you can have the other up and running

    couple of piccie piccies







    Haven't taken it out in a while. Need some thread locker and to buy a new front left control arm as i lost the shim and screw for it, and can't get ANY fkn info on the damn thing. With the right gear ratios, and tyres that thing could do a 170-200km/h pass... it's fkn quick but good luck trying to control the fkr at those speeds! LOL

    Also have a nitro 1/10th touring car. 2 speed gearbox, .28 motor, full aluminium body, and some minor aftermarket stuff, but never really liked it as you'd have to adjust the carby on the damn thing all the fkn time, or it wouldn't start and just gave up on it pretty much.
