What ever it is, the only dust on the track, is what have fallen during the night. After two rounds of qual's they blew the track off and I didn't see any dust!!!!!!!

Walking the track, I'm an EX MX racer, you can see in the cracks a white-ish substance

Hi all - just getting into off road racing. Have a slash for the kids that I have been running at the track but I would like to get something serious. The guys at the track said to hold off on the sc5m because something better would be coming out to compete with losi ... any truth to this? I am not that serious so I don't care about Losi being better right now as long as a new truck doesnt come out the day after I buy

Thanks!!

How often do they release? Yearly? I'm pretty new. Only club race a X-ray on road so far

I'd pull the trigger on the SC5M. It's currently the state of the art in 2wd SCT and many upgrades are already available for it. Plus, I don't think TLR will be able to bring out anything better at the $310 price point of the Associated truck

I've run mine on dirt oval. Been very successful with it in just 3 race days. No sway bar on my track.

I'm putting the order in for it tonight, sclm and mod are very competitive around here. Was basically basically just wondering if anyone was having success with it.

I've gotten my car setup very nicely now, just need harder springs on the front now. CUrrently I'm the only one running a SC5m and only mid-mounted SC Truck, I'm new to off-road and already up there with the fast guys.

Great truck once it has been setup.

Does anyone know of a rear hex that will allow me to use 0 offset wheels? Was wondering if one of the 22sct rear hexes would work.
