    I have a nitro in my loft but it's a focus wrc and won't run on grass
    i have only run the bloody thing about three times since new as there's never been anywhere big enough to use it.
    i got mine probably 12 years + from modelsport.

    now it looks like I'm going to be investing in one of these bad boys
    Instagram and twitter @mrteajunkie.
    I make mugs, keyrings, coasters, T-shirt’s and decals.

    Thanks to MrTeajunkie

    I had a few nitros. Now I have a 1:8 Caster Fusion EX-1 electric buggy. Does around 50mph and no fiddling with tuning the engine. Also have a 1:10 Team Associated TC5 electric touring car that I raced - got a 2nd place in my group in my first real race at the old Silverstone RC track. Also have a 1:5 scale Baja that runs on 2 stroke and is INSANE!! I ran a company for a while selling RC cars and accessories and was quite successful - the mark up on the prices is mad though. Thinking about selling all my stuff now as I don't get the time to run them - although took the buggy out last week for a bit.

    Check out the MSUK forums for regular meetups and local groups. Had plenty of fun with the MSUK lot and helped organise North London Bashers for a while. ALways a good, fun day out.

    Did about £150 worth of damage on this run (Well mostly it was my son lol)

    And here's another vid from a few years back

    Done a bit of damage to my mbx when i was playing on a table top ramp.
    had it landing like a cat on the down ramp .
    so got a bit adventurous and gave it full steam.
    The buggy over shot the ramp , battery dislodged
    , so I'm holding the controller above my head , trying to gain control
    And running after it . It then runs in to long grass that slows it down a bit , goes under the fence onto the road .
    takes of like a built hits the kerb on the opposite side and ends up stuck half way up a bush , still running full speed , with the
    exhaust ripped off .
    It got to the stage it was costing more to fix that my real car . Good fun but .

    Nice one bob , is the buggy in the first vid electric ?
    might buy a new toy in the summer and as you say all the messing about with bumper boxes and tuning the thing get tiresome , how long is the run time ?

    Yeah. Runs off two 2 cell lipos. Can run at 6 cell for even more speed though. I know a few people that ran at 8 cell!!! Stupid fast and uncontrollable.

    lol, mid life crisis. I think the purchase of a remote controlled car is more like a 'mid life purchase' or 'mid life blowout'....or at worst, 'mid life funny five minutes'.

    If you could come back to us when you've bought a full size sports car, or procured yourself a nubile 20 year old blonde...then we can talk crises

    Thanks to flumperino
