Paul,
you're kinda into the champaign traxxas nitro hawk chassis. There was the NitroHawk truck version, NitroBuggy buggy version, and NitroStreet car version. Kinda following along the traxxas use/reuse same parts for a ton of other cars/trucks over the years situation. The truck of course fell into the stadium truck era and was alot more popular but the tried and true buggy guys needed something to run once nitro started taking over also so along came the nitro buggy. The nitro street competed with the rc10NDS around here locally but they didn't fair too well. They were all a beast on the oval but like alot of traxxas stuff they just didn't steer and not alot you could do to make them steer without falling off the throttle. The guys that were kinda successful with them just needed to time it right coming out of a turn. if it was pointed right where you wanted it the things would shoot straight with full throttle without waving all over the place like my associateds did. Associated was more tuneable anyway. My LHS is still mostly traxxas and can still find some of the parts on the shelf for the nitro buggy :wink:

Todd
Todd, thanks for the history lesson. I certainly remembered the ST and the onroad version, but I couldn't recall a buggy one... it's pretty cool :)

Thanks!

I see four votes on a simple car that came out of a 3D printer in 2018 - I think this is very disrespectful to the real builds.
This is a vintage rc RACECAR forum not a show facility for 3D printers.

Please do not think that I´m crying over lack of votes on my own build :wink:

Lots of amazing builds this month, but Shodog's rail stands above the rest for me.

:shock:

A self-designed, vintage-inspired car for me totally has its place here. So does my non-race (but vintage!) car :mrgreen:

C'mon Dennis!

It’s a bit border line if you’re a purist I reckon. My replica has a lot of printed parts as well and the whole chassis is also modern. You could also argue that these parts were never available etc. But anyway, we already have difficulties to find 10 entries each month and there is nothing at stake so let’s take it easy. Or maybe run a poll?

The title of the competition is "Build of the month" not "vintage build of the month" I'd say enter what you like , it will or will not get votes depending on the skill and craftsmanship of the build judged by the tastes of forum members and we are all vintage nuts ! , no need for upset .
Ultimately 3d printing is going to be the future of vintage , we all want that completely original car in mint condition but it becomes too prescious to drive and it sits on a shelf ! Half the joy is in driving these cars and 3d printing gives us a limitless supply of spare parts , at the moment our NIP parts are found in boxes at the back of closing down model shops , these will run out ,3d printed parts will not run out .
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.
A problem shared is a problem halved but an advantage shared is no advantage at all.
