Default They Should Just Give 'em away!

Check this out. Ofna is an amazing company for their support, durability, and funness. Amainhobbies just seems to be given em away. If I had some $$$, I'd get one instantly. Here's the linky link.

TIPS::
Just for all you new to good rc, don't get one of these, it'll break and you'll be screwed, start out with something slower or electric, it'll save you lots of time and aggrivation. Also read the manual if you do get one, it'll save you lots of aggrivation

Well I also found out that the Sportwerks Chaos is on sale for only $69.99 when they retail for $199.99! That may be my next nitro 'specially since a guy who works at my LHS has 3. And a Mini Inferno ST 09 is on sale for $199.99 when they retail for $399.99

only problem with those cheap nitros is the engines, the cheaper the less they last.

The chaos is not a bad vehicle but i had problems with the diffs in them the motor was great though diffs are all plastic.

From what i have seen and had the motor is usually one of the best things on a off brand everything else sucks on them and is hard to find parts.


And for that ofna that is one heck of a deal for a ofna,if i did not have to many now i would think about getting one

problem is tho with the cheaper motors the engines are less to spec so they don't last as long and are more pron to having issues. Your better of spending the money now on a decent car cuz in the end u'll end up spending to money on the cheaper car just to make it the same.

Actually I've also heard bad things about the diffs especially the rear ones and how the dog bones pop out off of jumps but I rarely ever jump. Then I remembered the Schumacher Rascal. Fastest Nitro Mini. Great price, same as ST09 when the ST is on sale, jumps fantastic, extremely durable. Also I wasn't too fond of the speed on the Chaos or the Mini Inferno. My Nitro Pede goes 35mph and those two only go about 24-27mph. The Rascal however goes 40+ with the one Speed, and 45+ with the two speed option. Plus RCCA and RCD and RCU all had great things to say about it. I think this is my next nitro, unless I get a Spektrum DX3S 3 Channel remote for either the Nitro Pede or Slash when it becomes BL.
