I have a TEK18 and I love it. It was an rc18b that I upgraded to Exotek Tek18 chassis. It isn't completely done yet, but it is very nice. Takes the rc18t to a whole new level. Some call it a mini-B44. :woohoo::thumbsup:

What's so great, that's where 1/12 started as a jerobee. They just brought one out now as gas is booming again with trucks. Anything to talk people into a new old fad.

true but it looks a lot more cool than the old jerobee
Naw they look more up to date. The Jerobee looked like a 1965 Jim Hall Can Am racer from back in the day. Mine had a Cox .049 for power and it would scream. Square box transmitter throttle on the side of the box. man those were the days! :thumbsup:

scalpel,s are the sh*T to bad our track closed down the last 2 races we ran we converted our scalpels to mod running a small 2 cell lipo on on side of the chassis and the rec.and esc on the othere with brushed motors the little cars really came to life and shined im back racing 1/24th scale slot cars now i c the brp uses a slot car motor its a super 16d with a rotor setup and a cheap china arm if the guys that run the brp would go to a local slot car track and get the stuff to build an super 16 c motor with american made armature trued and balance you would be blown away by the speed of that car

The latest BRPs are using the 370 motors from the Assoc. RC18t for motors. They have good speed and are more durable then the slot car motors. We did try the super 16 with the american arms. We still had heat problems but that was on 6 cells. We run 4 cells now and are about the same speed.
