Default Is anyone into RC cars?

I have been for a while, started with an 1984 Mauri Samurai as a kid and x-Mods(the originals) as a teen. Now I have those plus an HPI Sprint 2 and a HPI Mini Recon. The Sami is stock, the X-mods is fully built with some X-mods Evoloution parts modded to fit, the Mini Recon is stock ATM aside from Deans connectors and adjustable upper suspension links, and the Sprint 2 has all upgraded aluminum suspension, three bodies, and a ton of other cool sh*t.

The x-mods and the Sprint 2 I have setup as drift cars, lmk what you think and if you are into them, what your setups are.

Here are a few pics of the Sprint 2:

Default Re: Is anyone into RC cars?

I was running a Jato for about 6 months.I put a big block Nova Rossi Kangaroo engine on it with the big block kit from new era.I was only able to get it up 70mph so I ended up selling it.I'm about to start my electric build.I'm going to find a used tc4 and just upgrade it with metal parts.I'm going to start of with the castle creations 7700 if I'm not satisfied with speed I get from it I'm going to go with the 9000 I figure with the right lipo and gear set up It should do 100+ easily.just worrying about it overheating and burning up the engine.when I start the Build ill post the pics.

Nice, I have never been into nitro, the sprint 2 has
Aluminum control arms
Aluminum spindles
Aluminum C hubs
Aluminum rear hubs
Aluminum shocks with original HPI springs in rear and GPM springs up front
Front CVD shafts
Rear axles off an HPI Blitz
Extra tensioner pully
Aluminum mid brace
All aluminum steering
and "custom" aluminum skid plates(made of old Monster cans), strut bars(I cut and drilled out of flat bar aluminum), front belt and upper chassis modded to fit hard case lipo, locked rear diff, a ton of different rims and tires, 3 bodies(one finished)...

and probably more...

Haven't gotten into cars but do have a couple RC planes.

Parkzone Radian (not the Pro) soon to be Modded
Modded Mini Cub by Hobbyzone

I do have an X-mod (Acura NSX) as well but the receiver is fried (I was young and stupid). Just haven't gotten it fixed yet.

We got a guy at the drift meets that runs a dodge ram body and he has a barrel shaped mobile speaker in the bed held with double sided tape.He runs a bluetooth attachment so he can stream music from his phone which he sits near the middle of the track.
