New Cars for this years racing

Me and my son do RC drag racing as one of our hobbies. Here's a couple new cars for this years season. First one is my sons dragster, he's been wanting to have a dragster for a while now. Here's a link to the complete build.

This is my first attempt at a nitro car. Using an old body until I get things worked out completely.

Same with my RC10GT. :(

That dragster looks killer! Post up some video of its runs if you can. I dont think some people understand how fast those cars can cook.

I've meet a few of the guys from NC in San Antonio at the Worlds. Also meet a few from Cali, Chicago, Florida, and Australia. Here's a video of a meet of our local guys from last year. I'm the guy in the cowboy hat and my son is driving the green Mustang. The track is 132' and some of the cars travel that length in as little as 1.2 seconds reaching speeds of 100+ MPH and that ain't scale MPH.

Finally got to race today. Here's a video of my son driving his dragster for the first time and a time slip from the race. Also a time slip from the nitro car.

Very cool, That curb looks like it could be deadly at the end tho.
