Traxxas brought a Funny Car protozoa to a local track for a few launches. Im no fan of the manufacturer, but this funny car was launching perfect nearly every time. And the numbers it was putting up were unbelievable. I don't have or ever owned a drag car but i will when this one is available. Im not sure if the car had telemetry or not but i did see one guy repeatedly check hes setup and adjusting my guess the ESC , via IPad....Wireless! I was sold!!

My buddy here in Indianapolis who is a real NHRA drag racer bought one of these the moment he saw them. "HAD to have it!" he said.

He just got it yesterday!

He sent me these photos from his cell phone. The photo where its sitting next to the 1/10th scale touring car really gives you a good idea of its size!

Scottman, I hope so too! Sure seems like the logical place would be Brownsburg since it is the home of Indianapolis (now Lucas Oil) Raceway Park!
