I left Nitro a couple of years ago ... but perhaps, this is the way back.

Thanks for posting the vid ... or not. Now I have this one in mind as well!!! ;)

I'd say buy it! Perhaps they will change houses than ... you'll get more space ... and everybody's happy!

we have the yard nazi type neighbors who have hissy fits if my sons cross over onto their grass to get a ball or something.... there is no way i could run that around without them petitioning to change the bylaws in the h.o.a. to ban them. :rolleyes: damn neighborhood politics :mad:

hahaha... i know what you mean... when i was at my cousin's place in l.a. they had neighbors just like that.... my niece and nephew were riding their bikes and one of them just fell over onto their lawn (heck they were just about 9 & 7 years old)... an old lady came out rushing to get them off their lawn...

poor kids were terrorized...

arch2b.... you are in my pover... you vill buy a nt18... you vill buy a nt18... muhahahaha... (guess that's just my evil side trying to get back at them pesky neighbors)

does anybody know how much they'll cost? and does it come rtr?

but guessing from the m18... kit only? with power pack/motor option?

I thought about a nitro Xray... but I went with an F1 instead. :D

It's mine, it's all mine. I've actually been offered 4x the amount I paid for it already and that is without the engine I just installed (OS)--Perhaps, I'll break it in tomorrow or at least try to before the SuperFly IV.

Anyway, I purchased the F1 used with an engine that was basically on its last legs. The owner basically flipped it and had no idea what it was though I believe it is an Ofna Colt F1. The engine that was in it also had "colt" stamped on it, but it is my understanding that the F1 was a kit. I do like the head on the old engine. The thing is that I even tried to talk the owner out of selling it and there is one on eBay at a buy it now for $400.00 or at least it was on eBay earlier today. The one on eBay is not mine though it does look like it has an OS engine in it too.

Here is another photo of my F1 with the other engine though the engine is rather difficult to see from that photo. I can upload a close up of the engine if anyone is interested--I just like the low profile cooling head. I also changed out the fuel tank--the stock one is smaller so that it hides under the body, but who wants to take the body off each time to refuel. The body also doesn't have a removeable nose like the Tamiya F1.

Instead of continuing to crash this thread, I started a new folder in Gallery TNB for the Nitro F1 which has about 20 photos in it. However, here is one comparing the size--basically, it is narrower than the Tamiya and twice as long as the Kyosho Mini-Zs.
