Default 90 MPH Taxxas 4tec

It's here and it's very real. Fastest 4tec I've ever seen yet. I didn't build did but a buddy of mines did. The owner is still getting used to driving it since its his first onroad and first speed car. This car sounds like its capable of the triple digits.

Sorry Anthoop but I dont have any info on this one. I didnt have anything to do with the build of this one. I know its a big motor, 26 or possibly a 28 but dont have any idea as to what the gearing is. I know its no longer a 2 speed though, its single.
With the scarce parts availability of the belt driven HPIs we run, this might have to be an alternative for our speed runs though. And yes, I believe its capable of the 100s if he can hold it straight and hold the throttle.

Funny thing is he is my buddy but there was a challenge issued to see who gets to 110 first with a nitro car in our crew. So he makes a few passes and to the trunk it goes. I'm at the point where Im doing the same thing to him. I know the motor he's running is bigger than a 21 because of the size of the head but Im not sure which one. He painted the top of the head black to keep that hush as well.
Not keeping any secrets because he's not even a member of this or any other forum. I guess its just his secret until someone gets to 110.
BTW, Im hoping to be there this sunday.

I have 2 electrics in my collection but the run time on them isnt for me. I like to get out and play for hours. Some of them in our crew are pulling off some serious numbers with the electrics but I'll stick to what Im used to. I even had a nitro revo converted to electric and Im in the process of converting it back to nitro. Like I read in someone post in the site "you have to pry my glow igniter from my cold dead hands"
