    and :eek3: to some of the tires all warped from spinning soo fast. they need to put some air in them tires. Are all gas powered or just the one with the smoke is gas powered? :bowdown: Nice shots I wish there was fun stuff like this where I live :wtc:

    This one is my fav. colors look good to me but alittle out of focus/blurred

    Yeah its hard to get a crisp photo with this shitty Sigma lens.

    FWIW all of these are gas powered. The couple of pics with the tires stretched super thin........the tire glue has lost its bond.

    Nice shots, i love my nitro car :)

    The only think I can suggest is try laying on the ground for more shots, it looks like you may have done this a couple of times.

    Yeah, gonna need some L glass to get a full crisp action shot of one of these fast trucks. Considering what equipment I have, I think they are pretty good.

    Brushless motors are where it's at; virtually infinite powerband because the motor automatically adjusts its timing on the fly, and the 3000mAh batteries last a good long time.
     
  18. pretty cool shit if you don't mine investing upwards of $1,000 + for a toy that gets destroyed with use :o

    Thanks. I use the Canon 300D with a Sigma 70-300mm f4-5.6 lens for RC stuff.

    For anything decent, $1000 is going to get you a stock truck with maybe a couple of upgraded parts. I purchased my Revo in December '05, and have already topped the $3,000 mark.
