I am patiently waiting as well. Until then, my XXXT-CR continues to get used. I'm hesitant to buy another stadium truck until one comes out that will be supported for a while, otherwise I'm just back to stocking all my own spares for any possible breakage.

That kind of makes me wonder if the hop up companies have an idea of what the manufacturers plan on releasing to the public.

After reading some discussions here and elsewhere on the Internet I am positive that we'll get a T5 and/or M before long. In the meantime I'll focus on converting the SC10 to a T4 and on getting items I'll be able to use on the new model, e.g. a Triad slipper and some sets of wheels.

Does any of your tracks allow ST to run with 2wd SCT?

We have enough stadium trucks for 2-3 heats usually on a club race night, stock that is... for mod usually 4-5 trucks.

My local track OCRC here in so. cal has a "racing truck" class during club racing. It typically consists of 5 or 6 modded stadium trucks and they usually will tuck in a couple 2wd short course trucks with them.

My T4.2FT is stock, 17.5. I currently run in the rookie class because I tried running in the "racing truck" class and got spanked by those with the mod motors. I wish we had enough to run a stock stadium truck class.

I have a Centro kit on way for mine! I spoke to Brent Thielke at race recently and he said right now they happy with the Centro conversion. After all, TA ran it at the Nats and all big races since then! It might be in works but if it was even a prototype, it would be shown already by the TA guys!!

I've been coming to OCRC and running practice laps with my XXXT-CR and 17.5 Shuur Speed. I plan on racing this month...maybe we can get enough for a stock race.

Nothing wrong with the T4.2, at my track we are getting around 25 "open 2wd trucks" each race, last race we had a D main. 3rd biggest class behind mod 2w buggy and 4w buggy, of course we average 160 entries for each club race.....

stadium truck is alive and well here....
