Some of the pics of the early Losi boxes are bringing back a lot of memories. I can't wait to see some pics of this race. Please someone who's going take lots of pictures of cars in the pits and on the track. Video on you tube would be cool too.
I dont think a super champ will win it
These were so inefficient, when I used to race one I had to modify everything except the heavy gear case
I had nylon arms and fiberglass chassis from CRP, futaba ESC, kyosho 1/8 shocks, custom made roll bar and rear tires with steel rivets glued to it, dirtburner diffs, checkpoint (1/12 or oval) motors
and then AE and Losi comes out with the rc10 and the jrx2 that was it for the tamiya super champ, it could not compete
DRRC - Never said the Super Champ would win it... Just that one make the A-Main... even as a long shot... though I doubt any are still any around to truly race! Its only in Japan where a vintage Race Class is more commonly found at Clubs and Tracks.
I have both... an ultra modified Super Champ which looks nothing like the original buggy and an Original and untouched kit. As a kid I raced it back in 83'/84 and through some of 85'... when the Gold Tub just started dominating Races everywhere. The Gold Tub then became my must have Dream RC Car for years even while I was out of the hobby...
