Does anybody have the new OFNA Sprint Car ? Just wanted to hear about it before I purchased one. Is it true that they put the mac star .28 in it (RTR) ? I have the hyper st truggy RTR and that is one engine I do not want again.

Don't have it yet, have ordered it from Nitrohouse for 368 or close to that price, the model that is out right is a rolling chassis no motor, no radio stuff. I ordered mine last friday and they said I would have mine this Thursday or Friday May 1st. seems all the midwest hobby stores haven't recieved any yet at least horizon hobbies in Ill. told me over the phone that they would'nt even recieve their shipment until Thurs or Friday May 1st. All the west coast stores have, Nitrohouse had the car on Friday, nd it makes sense being that OFNA is in Cali.

Sounds like your going to get it soon. It really looks like a very well constructed replica. I am really anxious to get one however our track is not constructed yet so I believe I will wait a bit. Keep us posted on how it handles ETC.

Hmmm...I heard that they were building a oval at Johnson county park with a 1/10th off road course,1/8th off road course and a rock climbing course. Not heard anything about a oval in Columbus but I bet it would be popular as several of my co-workers have expressed interest in the sprint cars.

Anyone figured out how to attatch the remote glow igniter to the glow plug...The internal spring is too big in diameter to stay on the glow plug....

Go to radio shack and buy a small shielded alagitor clip and put it on the glow plug wire it will hang on.

What type of track are y'all running on? High bite blue groove, hard packed clay or loose damp clay fluff etc.? how long are the straits? Do y'all run rubber pin tires, foam tires or the stock ones? .Do you want to drift. We've been racing these since May of 09, super fun class! Give me a little more information I think I can help. You will find that you need the Ofna cnc front hubs or knuckles , cnc lower hinge pin mounts, a bottle of 120,000, and a bottle of 20,000 diff lube.

Put your battery in your receiver box or somewhere else in front of the rear tires, put the same size tires on all four corners. Maybe lower the rear wing a bit or put a lexan rear wing on it. That should take some push out. What are the other 1/8 scales running for tires?
