Nitro RC cars
Wondering if anyone here has any nitro RC's, if wanted one since I was about 13 when my cousins had them, I thought they were seriously badass but with the price of them there wasn't a chance in hell that if be able to have one. I love anything with an engine (especially if it's 2 stroke) so the bug for one of these never really left me.
Got my first last year and only recently started taking t down to my local track, been having a blast to be fair until I totalled the engine, lost all control from the battery powering my radio on the car coming disconnected, it did a dance on the track and ended up on its roof on full throttle, revved so high (Atleast 40k) that the conrod bent and smashed the piston. Got myself a thorough bred race buggy now and looking to start competing with it.
Anyone who's unfamiliar with nitro engines; they're essentially 2 stroke Diesels. They have a glow plug with a 2 stroke cycle, but run on nitro fuel and can make crazy power for their size, an engine I had made over 4bhp from 5.3cc. And as you can guess are a lot of fun ;D
Some pics of one of mine:

@Burridge They sound cool too. That looks like alot of fun!
Would love to try one of them out! Are they all that loud?
They are pretty loud, depends what engine size mainly though, a little .15 isn't all that loud but .21 and up just scream, sound like a chainsaw when ticking over
I have a 2.5 engine near on new out of my old buggy, offers welcome it's sat in a box doing nothing

Post some vids guys, us 2T petrolheads need some stimulation!!!
@CYBER-NINJA Would do but don't have many decent videos of mine other than dodgy jump landings haha!! Type HPI savage bashing into YouTube, I've recently ordered the SS which is the build it yourself kit version that should be coming near the end of the month, 4.6cc monster truck and also type in ndor track, which is where I run my nitro buggy. Also got a Traxxas Slayer Pro 4x4 which is a short course truck that I've been romping round the garden today if you wanna look at them too, masses of fun!! Until you crash and break something of course, but saying that, I've crashed the traxxas into our incinerator bonfire thing several times today and it now looks like a crumpled beer can... Oops
