BA Remote Control cars ?

Has anyone seen a BA remote control car yet ? The ones with the glow engines not the battery ones.

I've seen the Lowndes AU one for around $600 bucks, but I really want a BA !

Apparently they will be releasing FPV models this year including the Pursuit.

These guys should be doing them http://www.modelengines.com.au/frames.htm

They look awesome, expecially the ford ute.

Agree on the front styling though, could be better IMO.

Hopefully I can get them to fit on my chasis.

Re: BA Remote Control cars ?

Stealth00 what chassis do you have ? I wouldn't mind the BA Ute but its belt driven, and I'm really not too fond on the belt driven... So I was going to maybe get a Tamiya and see if I adapt the shell onto it like you said.

Reckon its possible ?

I have a "MEGA" 4WD shaft-drivn electric car by Smartech, Model Engines are the distributors of smartech. This is a great chassis to start with, can be tuned and fully rubuildable. Also being locally made and new to the market parts are easy to get hold off at a good price.

It's awesome fun and very fast for a stock car!! :s6:

Dont really like the look of the ute, hopefully the front end of the race car looks better as i wanna change from my skyline shell.

Its on a Tamiya TG10-MK1 chassis
