What track food do you like?

What track food do you like?

Every weekend that I hit the track I bring a few of my favorite foods so I have something to chow on when I get hungry. I’m not a fan of having to leave the track during the day to get some grub because I’m always worried that I’m going to miss my next round […]

Are nitro short course trucks the next big class?

I’ve been talking about converting my Losi TEN SCTE to nitro power for a while now and I finally found the time to make the change over. Since the chassis had all the same screw holes and cut outs as the Losi 810 I decided to remove everything from the chassis of my 810 to […]
