Happy xmas peeps

As for the post topic

ive given up on schuey they seem to be going backwards. They had the menace and xtr3e the fastest 1:10 outlaw trucks out and everyone knew it.  Even the rcuniverse guys would say this through gritted teeth (then comment they break easy)

Now the xtr3e is gone replace by a riot or was it the rascal??   both to slow for drag racing and running track oval racing.   

And they just dont have the ooooo  factor the xt series  did when it screamed past you on two wheels

and im unsure if the menace is going to be around much longer

 

 

 

As for fusions

i got one it shreads gears if the track you run on has even the tinyest pebbles  the rs4's i run with never seem to have this problem and are pretty quick if you put some cash into them.

 

sooo im gonna sell and get a ct4 or hpi rs4

 

 

rant over haha

 

Have a great xmas and new year   

Im off on the roof with me gun  we be having reindeer for tea tomorrow

I pulled my Fusion out last Aug. after a year of sitting around and the first time I fired it up, I tore my piston and rod to pieces! Ouch! I just didn't get around to buying a new engine. So it sits. My LHS stopped selling Fusions and the parts are drying up. I don't believe that Schumacher marketed the Fusion well enough in my area for it to catch on so in a long way round I think people are losing interest in this car. Too bad, cause I've had fun with mine just tearing around the empty school parking lot!

............ Don't know if people are losing interest in this type of car Joe.  But when this car first came out it was kinda one of a kind now there are soo many copies like the Cen CT-5 , Nitro 4-tec from traxxas and other onroad rtr that people have other brands to choose from besides just Schumacher. But i am sure that the Lipo's and Brushless motor technology will have an effect on the nitro market too, it is alot easier to go faster with electric than nitro.
