man that is too much!

what scale is it? is it 1/8th?

pretty incredible!

one thing: wouldnt you want to distribute the weight by having one battery per side instead of them side by side? or doesnt that matter in straight line racing like it would in road course racing?

THANX for the looks. The scale is 1/12 & in drag racing the weight is on the other side to commpensate for FAT guys like ME! :D
