Im looking to purchase a new giant scale 1/5th but want to talk to some people first. Currently I own a Traxxas rustler with a 3.3 which is a nitro engine. My little Rustler will run about 60 or 70 MPH easy and from a stand still will burn the tires down. Even starts to wheelie at 50 plus MPH. Im currently looking into buying a 1/5 scale 36cc Rovan or a Redcat dune runner only because of the reliability of the large two stroke motor. Only problem I have seen so far is that the Large cc 1/5th scale cars and buggies look slow compared to my little 300 Dollar 3.3 Rustler. Every video I have ever seen of a 1/5th scale gas buggy or truck they all barley start out from a standstill. The large 1/5th scale buggies just do not seem to have the takeoff power that a less expensive nitro car has. Not sure why so many large scale rc cars have wheelie bars. My little Rustler will burn the tires off from a stand still and will pull the front end up all day long from the power to weight ratio but I just don't see that kind of power from the 1/5th scale cars and buggies. Anyone have any input on that subject? Seems like the large 1/5th scale cars are asking a lot of the gears with all of that weight and the big cc motors. Id love to get a large scale 1/5th scale but don't want something that just gets around. For 700 U.S. Dollars Im thinking it better burn the tires off. At least thats what my little 300 dollar Nitro Rustler does all day long.
