I remember back in the day when I had my Nitro car, a 2 speed tranny was all that was available and you had the fun of trying to adjust the shift points with a allen key set screw.
I since got rid of my gas powered car and went for the cool factor.

Tamiya Knight hauler with 3spd electric shift transmission and MFU installed.

Boy! I'd hate to see the end result if crack and hookers were your hobby!
11.931 @ 116.33 (MT ET Streets)
12.073 @ 118.43 (Nitto 555)

I love the smell of Nitromethane and rubber in the morning!
Drag racers prayer:
As I lay rubber down the street, I pray for traction I can keep, but if I spin and begin to slide, please dear God protect my ride." -Amen

I've built and flown dozens of model airplanes over the years. The best is a P38 Lightning with two 4 stroke motors, retractable landing gear and a 6 foot wingspan. It took me 3 years to build from a balsa kit. It still flies great!

Here is some of the stuff I just sold.

Revo: Big block conversion, I had to build the conversion myself, there were no kits at the time. This is right after playing and it was filthy

Custom built rock crawler. I ordered the chassis and built the rest:

I had a T-Maxx, all Super Maxx aluminum parts, with a big block conversion, but didn't get a chance to get any pics before it sold. Between two enthusiasts, they bought all of my stuff within 48 hrs of posting it on Craigs List
I loved these cars. I enjoyed building them more than driving them.

I have built and sold off a few Axial based crawlers in the past few years. There's a group in DFW that get together for crawling comps. Thinking about building another one but haven't gotten the itch bad enough yet.
