Will you continue a Euro truck class, or was it only for this series...and/or...when is the next series?

Appears I would only need a kit, bearings, RX/TX & servo to compete

If enough trucks show up they also race on club racing days 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month. So if lets say you run touring car, bring your truck also in case there is a class for trucks. Turnout has been pretty good lately on club racing Sundays.

IF I had a touring car...Dirt guy here, just absolutely love a true spec class. I was asking Charlie about a gearbox class, but that would be the same - need enough racers to make a class

We have a steady group of 4-6 Eurotrucks on club race day. Ken just got one now too. SHouldn't have a problem with the turnouts.

Gotcha Charlie...soon as a couple of these old Vintage LXTs sell off, a purple Euro Truck will appear.

So got my truck, its nearly completely built - need my servo to arrive, LOL - I ordered it today, how come it isnt here yet???

So, stupid question, there arent inserts in the tires? I didnt glue them up yet thinking I need to go buy some...

2nd stupid question, how are you guys getting your lipo to sit flat? I havent dropped mine in yet (and need to get a stick pack, all I have are shorty packs), but it looks like the NiCd 'ribs' will be in the way.

Those dirt guys...dont know nothing about running on flat stuff....

Tamiya rules say box stock. Only hop up is bearings. No inserts, lipo stick pack. Reedy and Peak have a lipo for the truck. motor and speedo thats in the box only. Charlie can chime in and correct anything i might have misinformed you with.These trucks are a blast, you wont regret it.
