I have Losi Madness!!!
I bought a few new RC cars this spring, I am also doing my rc dirt track in my yard for 1/24 ~ 1/18 scale
Brushless 1/24 scale Losi SCT I bought two of these, they rock
Brushless 1/24 scale Losi Rally I bought two of these, they rock also, but ground clearance could be an issue on rough terrain.
Losi Trail Trekker, by far the coolest micro climber, I got 2 of these also, I have created a few courses and should get some pictures uploaded.

Looks like the winter is mostly over and Spring in around the corner.
Looking forward to another year of RC fun...
Got the HPI Baja 5T last year to go along with my HPI Baja 5B SS, I have some mods done over the winter, looking forward to playing this summer with them.
I will be doing more FPV'ing . got a couple new toys and ideas
Got Nitro! - I Did!
| Jan 21, 2011 @ 09:03 AM | 3,736 Views
Update - I have sold these off, i just did not care for them, short run time and a PIA to start even with starting Wand, these cars were Exceed Rc / NitroRCX cars, just not worth it.
I bought 2 HPI RS4's and couldn't be any happier, the difference is night and day, starts with 3 pulls all the time, both are great cars.
------ First post ----- before trying them
Well Dec was my B-day and Xmas all together, I was lucky enough to get a couple of RC 1/16 Scale Nitro Buggies (x1) and Trucks (x2)
I did spend a couple days outside doing the Nitro engine break ins, but the winter here is too harsh for anything else.
Looking forward to spring time when I get to work on my outdoor track.
