Traxxas 1/8th scale funny car





The Traxxas NHRA Funny Car backs up its real-racing looks with genuine Funny Car performance. Install a Traxxas Power Cell 3-cell LiPo pack and the Traxxas Funny Car rips off the line with tire-spinning torque. Stay in the throttle and top speed leaps to 70mph and beyond. The body's fully functional aerodynamic design and high-downforce rear wing let you put power down like the pro's with spectacular launches and exciting speed...

That looks interesting. I might have to take a closer look at it since there is an RC drag strip here locally.

Looks like fun if a group of guys get one and have drag races for bragging rights.

I'm liking one just to look at on the shelf.

Definitely a cool looking ride. Imagine if it had a working 'chute!? Either way I see some fun parking lot vids hitting YouTube in the future.

First person to market a reliable working chute utilizing the third channel is bound to sell a tone of 'em.

I gotta admit, those are pretty darn cool. More tempting to me than the XO-1 even.

They need to make a MX bike dangit, they even sponsor pro riders, but have yet to dive into the RC bike realm.

Honestly, I've been hoping (ok, praying) they would do a 1:10 stock car. I'm talking more of a scale stock car, not just a body on a TC. Rear wheel drive, solid rear axle, independent front suspension, full cage. 200mm so current oval bodies would fit properly. I think that would take off. Maybe not RWD though, since many people would have a lot of trouble controlling it.
