No, that one doesn't appear to be able to go in reverse(the reason I say that is because it doesn't say in the transmission thing and it only requires a 2 channel radio, most reversable trucks and/or cars have 3 channel radios). I'm not too familiar with street cars, but I know a lot of monster trucks have gone to transmissions that allow you to go in reverse.

Some do, most don't. The Traxxas T-Maxx, Duratrax Overdrive, HPI Savage(if equipped with a reverse module), and other cars are equipped with reverse. However, there are no nitro touring cars available with reverse.

On road cars dont have room for a reverse module and they are pointless for a on road. They just add wieght and require a 3 channel radio

Malibu mate... what about these:

T-Maxx
Hpi Savage
Kyosho QRC Baja
Overdrive

etc....

So some do, and some don't...

shyishguy, basically you can't run a nitro engine in reverse, and so basically u need a special gearbox for that car (if they sell it) to allow you to change into reverse. That particular car doesn't go into reverse because it's not really necessary. You will find that monster trucks are the predominant source of reversing r/c nitro cars, because they tend to get into tough spots to get out off a lot more often than on-road cars.

Easy there. Nowadays there is so much confusion about what is a car and what is a truck because of SUVs. Most SUV owners refer to them as cars and almost all the kids think they are cars.

So ease up on someone who asks if a RC nitro CAR has reverse, they may be thinking truck instead.

And I know that the originator did include a link to the HPI RS4 SS and you are correct that nearly all nitro CARs do not have reverse.

Ummm well if any one would think for a second a car is a car. a truck is a truck. a SUV is a SUV.

so when someone says CAR and leave a link of an on road CAR.

then they much be talking about a CAR.

Well what r/c nitro cars go into reverse? CARS IM TALKING ABOUT CARS NOT TRUCKS

Nitro ON-ROAD CAN'T go in reverse.
Nitro OFF-ROAD CAN go in reverse.

Since Shyishguy Is Getting ON-ROAD He CAN't go in reverse.


There is your answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
