RC cars, i got a new car!

Unread postAuthor: Brooner115 » Mon Jul 09, 2007 3:34 pm

Ok i just got a new 3.3 nitro 4-tec and its awesome!

i just need some advice on what kind of new tires to get because mine are already slicks!

thanx guys for your help!

EDIT: Here are a few videos of the car i got. At full throttle it can reach 70 MPH! 3.3 is the name of the car and engine made by Traxxas.

Get some good knobbys, they get good traction everywhere and will last you a while, untill they are smooth. Then they are fun to spin donuts with :lol:

No, that's what Traxxas claims it can reach. Its actually top speed in stock form is closer to 50mph.

As for the tires, I am not much of an on-road RC enthusiast, so I can't help there. If you have an off-road vehicle, I am the one to talk to if you want any questions answered.

I'm pretty sure that it can 70MPH right out of the box because my T-Maxx can reach 55MPH and the car is WAY faster than that. I've raced them side by side with my friend driving my T-Maxx and the 4-Tec blew it away easily. And once u step on the throttle with the 4-Tec it can't go straight because all of its power it just spins out right away.
