i understand. rb combo looks good, i'll check it out.
about runtime i should have mentioned that the track i'm going to race at is pretty new(2 years) and haven't developed into large minute mains (i think this year they'll go 5 min quallifiers and 5 min mains). this year it could go up to 5-10 min quallifers and 10 min mains but my guess is it will be another year.
i think i'm getting a nova rossi with a ofna 086. thanks for the opinions.
