Anybody here into radio controlled, nitromethane burning, 1/8th scale Off Road Monster Trucks, Truggies, or Buggies?

I am! *

Below is a pic of one of my Custom, Ground Up Builds, the BulletProofSavage

You can also visit my blog, which is about tips, tricks, hop ups, pics, videos, etc related particularly to the HPI Savage

Ashley you know how to have a good time! I was just checking out your site and was looking through all this WOW!


I was watching your video! MY GOSH! That RC car was way up in the air like 10 ft? HAHAHHA That was awesome!

How did you get involved with all this fun RC stuff?

I love your car too! Did you restore that?

Here's a better jump...

I saw the rc thing for the first time on DIY Network...made a bee line for the nearest LHS (local hobby store)

Ugh...the "Elky" as my wife called it...yes, if you want to call it a resto. That thing weighed 80lbs more when I got done with it (b-o-n-d-o)

More about rc on the "anyone own a savage x" thread at rc universe.

That is a great picture! Are your videos called the Nitro Show? Is that why that is painted on your ramp?

This is great! I used to be into RC heavy, but always electric never fuel...I would love to get back into it. What would your recommend as a starter kit? And what kind of money do you think is a good first investment into the sport?

Well, if you want nitro, which is really all I know, I'd get an HPI Savage X SS 4.6 RTR (ready to run). From there, you can upgrade it as you break stuff

For that bad boy, you're lookin' at about $430 or so, maybe better on ebay.

Hi Ashley,

You are absolutely on fire! I love all this creativity!

Have you ever thought of pulling your business in as a sponsor for your shows? You could have your business name on the ramp! Hand out marketing material for your lawn care business at events.

Why not have your truck painted like a bee! Call it the Busy Bee Lawn Care Nitro!

Then you could have a picture of this on your lawn care business website!

Have the words Nitro on your real lawn truck.

Could you perform this at local birthday parties too? Maybe have a package where you bring a bunch of not so fast cars that the kids could try jumping as well? That would get you to get tight with the local parents.

What's your view on any of this?
