A sequel to the hugely popular competition of last year- Full Throttle, Afterburn demands the participants to build a remote controlled miniature monster truck, complete with a 3.2cc internal combustion engine, clutch, transmission system and suspension to complete a grueling off-road challenge and emerge fastest.
Building remote controlled cars, without the use of any readymade mechanism is a task only true engineers can complete. Full Throttle: Afterburn promises to be a challenge for ace builders as well as drivers, with a cool $1000 reward to take away, along with the glory to have beaten up the best in the business.
