2013 The Dirt Nitro Challenge – Large Scale Race


The Dirt Nitro Challenge – 1/5 Scale Racing

Looks like the The Dirt 2012 was a success when it comes to the gas powered 2 stroke 1/5 large scales. So they are back, the Nitro Challenge is allowing large scale back. Get your HPI Baja, Losi 5IVE-T, MCD or whatever 1/5 scale you prefer to race.

Looks like our friends at TeamChase have stepped us as the only Large Scale company to sponsor the event. Way to go TeamChase! We are told they will be updating LSN live from the event just like they did last year HERE.

Shinny New Car from Mecatech FW 01

We do not follow much of the on-road large scale scene but we really do enjoy looking at these machines. Mecatech passed on this news to us so we thought we would share it.

For some reason their site is not updated but their facebook is and has lots of pretty pictures of a lot of detail of their billet monster.

Mecatech please send us one of these, I want to run one!
