I think there was an older race at So Cal that did that even better. It was called a "Dust Buster" race. Everyone who raced ran an old RC 12I or some sort of 1/12 scale. Each racer got a $20 Dust buster like from Home Depot. They all took it apart and used the motor and batteries from the Dust Buster to run their 1/12 scales. I believe it was Nick Mc Millen that was the winner. Anyways it would be cool to see something like that.
Hey, better than that how about a junk race?? Have a major mfg like HPI?????? donate a bunch of junk parts and have guys build a car from scratch and then race it. You can have awards for best original, funny,...and so on. Of course the winner of the race would have the best performance. This would be a great way to see some new and unique chassis designs for future product offerings. How about that????
