the rebentol is an RC car if you look at the reflection you can see an arrow stating to open the cover to insert the batteries

27mhz cars are very slow,you could have gone for a little more 32+ mhz,obvious the rates also goes multiplying the quality of the RC's available in the markets are dropping day by day.

Yeah ramie, i was wondering the same. I have a 27 Mhz hummer and also others that are 40-49 mhz and found that the latter ones are much faster. What is the deal here, i thought frequencies didnt matter , it was the motor and the weight of the car that mattered.

hmmm...would second that @ ramie..IMHO the frequency does not play a part in how fast a rc would go..it depends on the weight it has, the motor, the rc batt and the car batt and the make is what really matters.
This bad boy is 27MHz only but it is damn fast and can beat my Dodge Challanger with low profile tires () which is 40MHz any day..:-D

the frequency does not matter on how fast a RC model goes..

Well just figured out why the hummer is slower, its fed by 3 batteries and smaller motor compared to the enzo which is fed by 4 batteries and a bigger motor and this hummer is a blinged out hummer with led's behind the wheels to have the neon effect. So guess the battery charge gets used up for these also apart from running the motor.

Bingo @ Rotorhead..the frequency is just for the hand held RC device..

Hey kapiljolly79, I have just ordered my Savage X 4.6 from the US, that should be here in 10 days. Its my second car after a Traxxas Rustler VXL ( have posted pics on this thread earlier ). Do let me know what kind of events are lined up as I surely would be interested.
And btw, you have a great collection!
Cheers!

My HPI is getting here shortly... its a Drift spec. RTR. Hopefully then I'll need to find good tarmac lol! here's a link... ::HPI RACING::

Had broken my Subaru the 45km per hour carisma.

Well, now this is whats in store, here's a nice pic... it doesnt produce alot of power but it sure as hell drifts like never before and 81km'hr is pretty decent IMHO.

cost: $309.99 for the kit #10071 body shell #17218-$25 and glow plug, igniter fuel and fuel bottle - $60
drift spec wheels with deep dish volk racing matt black - 45.99$ with tyres.

total: $440 odd - Rs. 17'000/- odd hope its worth it.

WoW @ Nitroxx.. man that is some tight stuff..IMHO $440 is cool but you need to make sure that you dont crash it..as dont think it would be easy to get it done..take some insurance on it man..(oriental insurance)

No problems man. I would say go ahead and rip it.

And thank you for those lovely comments CL. Will keep you posted about the launch events for Hpi. The first launch is going to be in Bangalore. Dates not finalised yet. Bombay should be in the near future considering a lot of you have HPI there. Infact, we will welcome all racers with RC. BIG BOY RC.

Thats a very good car. I hope you knnow how to tune it well. You're welcome to look me up anytime if you need help. Also, do let me know how and from where are you going to source the fuel. Generally the Aeromodelling guys use three ingredients which is not good for nitro engines. Will give you heads up info so you can use good fuel mix for your nitro engine.

Also, 17k is a good price. However you will not be covered under warranty from HPI India. So thats a call I guess you made with that in mind.

For a mere 4k more, you could have bought it from HPI India and gotten covered under warranties etc. Anyways, you've got a great car and I hipe to see you in full drift force whenever we do the launch in Bombay.

Seems like the RC culture has caught on in india. Count me in with my E-savage for any RC meet. Im planning to pick up or E-Revo or the new E-maxx from traxxas on my next trip.

@CLS55 - are u getting the savage with the 3 speed transmission?

@nitroxx - Congrats on the new RC, plz post a detailed review when u get a chance.
