Here is my Traxxas E-Maxx, 4wd and waterproof. Bought it 2 yrs back and used for around 6 months till the battery burnt. Was in the store room for 1 yr. Rats had eaten the cabling of t he EVX-2 Speed control unit. So ordered for new batteries,charger, EX-2 Control unit today (total came to 18,000). Hopefully I will have it running again in the next 2 months.

You spent 18000 for those parts??? wow. You could have contacted me. I own Traxxas India. for 24k, you could have gotten yourself a brand new Emaxx, with batteries, charger, the new ESC, New Motors and the latest 2.4ghz Link Radio. You sure didn't do much homework I guess.

Need to go through this thread some interesting stuff. I never had the oppertunity to own a R/C kit car, eg Tamiya. Had a few friends to had the off roaders (Grasshopper/ BigFoot) and it was fun to play. Back in the late 80s/90s they were way out of budget. Even now So i the kid in me went a got Maisto Monster Drift from Modelart Bangalore (rs 1300/- aprx). Just got it yesterday and have been drifting and drifting and drifting. Will put a few pics and maybe a youtube video.

Talking My nieghbours 37cc Nitro Methane Powered offroader [VIDEO]

My neighbor recently bought this from the US.
It has 37 cc motor. Runs on independent suspension setup.
Shockers, tyres etc can be changed.
Car runs on Nitro Methane, which costs somewhere close to Rs. 500/lt.
Fuel tank capacity of car is 150ml.
1L of fuel is good for 3 hours of running.

The remote control has a steering wheel, option to shift from automatic to manual, brakes and a few other control.
There is separate remote for the ignition.
Remote control has a range of around 600-700 meters.

The car has LED headlamps.

Car requires a service after every 3 hours of running.

I did not click any pictures, however made a few videos from my phone.

Here they are:
