Well my son has been talking about doing some Drag Racing with the local group so I dug out the Blitz ESE I got a couple years back, I already had an SC Body I had done up for the Savage but it never looked quite right, so I plated the back with some kydex I had and have been rebuilding the Blitz so it can be a Drag Truck, I am using my trusty FlySky GT3B to run it and a had a GOOL RC 60 amp esc and a 5200 motor, from another project so in it went, I am almost ready to put down a few test runs then next month it will be racing the 1st and 2nd of the month here at home and in Mendocino County at RPP Hobbys place...

I finished the body mounting, I am using magnets to hold it on, I also put on the front grill decal, maybe this weekend I can get it out to some smooth pavement and see how it does run....

Well with a few races under my belt I have to say this truck is consistent and pretty fast, still a few issues but so far I am happy with how it does run.... for a 50 dollar chassis and a body I had sitting around it is not too bad, the biggest cost is wheels and tires...

My Grandson got his car all done, it is a stock Associated DR10 chassis, the body and paint colors were picked by him also, so on went a Mustang Cobra body done in black and gold, Electronics consist of a Rocket ESC and 5900kv Motor I got off ali express he got to run it on the track last saturday for his first time racing it, the radio I got on a trade, it is a basic 2 ch 2.4 gig system but it also has a 3 position switch to make it easy to limit throttle until he gets better and the torque setting on the esc is set to 1 out of 9 so plenty of room for him to grow into the car, he did really well no major crashes or incidents to speak of.

Work done on the Blitz Drag Truck this week, I managed to find RPM arms for both ends, installed the rear arms and the Hot Racing alloy hingepin holders and the new Hubs to go with the parts, install was easy and really adds support to the rear of the truck, 99% of the flex is gone which will help with stability I am hoping, they do look pretty sweet and parts are getting hard to find for this chassis now...
next raceday is the 10th of September so we will be hoping for these to work well, also of note are the Lunsford Titanium links and RPM ballcups, next up is the RPM front arms and bulkhead and then the suspension will be completed, it already had the spindles and c hubs and steering cranks done when I got it years back...
