Competitive - yes.... win against the likes of top Pro's - I doubt the equipment matters - they can just outwheel 99% of us. Just to prove this point, a local off-road track just opened and I am going to running some really retro cars for the following:
1) I just love the way certain "oldies" look and sound.
2) I like to be different.
3) With today's electronics / motors, these older cars would only be faster. Couple that with some new tire compounds and IMHO the difference will be minimal.
Good luck with the JRX2 bibleboy - you should have lots of fun with it ... and if you really think the car is holding you back, then upgrade. IMO, RC racing is 70% wheel skills, 20% luck, and 10% equipment.
