    haha, yea. im into LargeScales. if you ever liked the hobby. the new thing out for real are these LOSI 5T's. They Operate off of your 2-stroke weed eater motors, just mix and go. length is 3 FOOT LONG X 1 1/5 FOOT WIDE......HUGE and short course 4x4 trucks that are detailed to the T!

    ONLY DOWNFALL TO THEM:Taking the plunge $$ b ut your talking roughly $2000/Remote (dont offer RTR)

    HorizonHobby.com Preview - Losi 5IVE-T 1/5-scale 4WD Off Road Truck - YouTube

    And here's the track at our Hills Property that I quickly designed using the raptor and my banshee to rut up to get started. (buddy of mine was on the banshee)
    Check out this video on YouTube:

    Believe it or not, there's more 25-45+ year olds with big scales as much as these 12year olds playing with the small scales. Nitro/electric/ hi performance reed motors is better than ever. Of course u make this another hobby if you have the time or make it for your son and a great excuse to buy toys with the wife's permission for bonding time

    My next hobby is turbine remote control boats but that's when I really have TIME!! motors costs $10k-20k. It's crazy with technology these days and the fun we can get into.

    THE RAPTOR above I posted isn't for "us" to have fun with rather than looks. Thought I would share the info as some locals might get one to bring out to the Hills Property. When we wanna pop a top and relax, remote control offroad speed! Ha! .
