Russ' Rides

Here's my fleet. After 27 years, and having every type of car imaginable, I've finally come full circle and established my final collection. Enjoy.

In my original post, I stated this was my final collection...That was until a track opened up near me, featuring dirt oval. Now, the fleet has been revised (slightly). Here's the 2013 lineup. All feature Futaba radios, Turnigy motors, and Hobby King bargain basement ESCs.
