Yeah, traction is almost as good as a TC. OUr guys have been using the buggy bodies. However, we JUST layed down new carpet last week, so the stadium truck thing might not be a bad idea. Maybe using a "nastruck" type body trimmed up right you wouldn't need much if any modification to the front body mounts? In anycase, I think we have some pics in the gallary section of our website if you care to take a peak.
Also, Our guys are using brushless motors with the exception of one using a 10turn something or other. CRAZY fast on a track that is only 60' long.
