GUIDE TO 60 MPH NITRO
Last week's issue compared 40+ mph nitro rc cars from
Associated, HPI, and OFNA. Fast yet good for beginners.
Now it's time for the big boys, nitro rc cars that have top speeds
of at least 60 mph! These models are great if you have plenty of
wide open space where you can really max out speed.
I am also starting to develop a section on 1/8 scale off-road gas
buggies. These are the fastest models in the dirt (of course gas
Monster truck owners will disagree), but in terms of speed
around a dirt race track, there is nothing that will beat the 1/8
As always, hope you have fun with the r/c hobby, and please

P.S. Summer is just around the corner... let the fun begin!
CEN CT4S vs. OFNA OB4
vs. TRAXXAS NITRO 4-TEC
Only a few 1/10 nitro rc cars can reach 60
mph. The reason is
that most companies would like to design cars for racing. This
means a car that has a good balance between acceleration and
top speed. They know that gearing a car to go 60 mph will make
it accelerate slower, not ideal for racing.
But if you love top speeds, then these 60+ mph nitro r/c cars are
what you are looking for. To make it easy for you to choose,
here is a side-by-side comparison of the CEN CT4S, OFNA OB4,
and the Traxxas Nitro 4-TEC.
BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO 1/8
RC GAS BUGGIES
These are the fastest models for racing in
the dirt. With the 2004
IFMAR World Championship around the corner, I felt motivate

Kyosho is the undisputed champion, having won the last 6 World
Championships! Challenging them this year is Mugen, HoBao /
OFNA, and Crono.

Biggest Monster Truck: The CEN 1/8 Nitro Genesis .46 RTR
Monster Truck will be available by May 2004. It has the biggest
nitro engine in its category, a whopping 7.7cc displacement
(i.e. .46 size). As a comparison, other monster trucks are using
a .18 - .25 size engine.

a new TRX 2.5 R motor.
