I've got a Duratrax nitro evader st that a buddy gave me after I helped him move and I also have an electric Duratrax evader bx that I need to get a new motor for. I'm thinking about getting a brushless set for it but I haven't convinced myself to spend the money. I haven't really spent much time running the nitro truck because it seems like every time I take it out I destroy something...it is fast though. Hopefully one day I'll get better at running these things and I'll get something a little more expensive.

I have a HPI Savage with a .27 Sirio engine, but I haven't fired it up in a few years. All of my buddies that used to run them got out of the hobby. I may try to fire it up this week and get some more videos of it. Right now I'm hooked on my Losi Micro Crawler, I just hate that I can't find a Jeep body to fit it.

I have a Associated RC10T, and run it all the time. I was really big into racing in the 90's and run a Reedy 14 triple with matched cell packs, Novak M5 SC, all old school stuff... The truck is decked out but the body looks like crap now. I recently bought a second complete truck and am rebuilding it.

I have a T-maxx, one of the old originals with the trx.15 engine. Its been resleeved a few times, but still has the original engine in it. Other than that and the belly pan, not much else is stock. I used to race it at a local track weekly back in the late 90's and as the stock parts broke, I replaced them with RPM heavy duty parts. For a monster truck it is set up fast and low since the track had a lot of tight turns and was mostly loose dirt with a few tacky clay areas.

Here is a pic of it with my Bro's Duratrax MAX-ST
