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.

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.
