in the us no they are too scared to race in the rain!

try using a under tray from a 4wd offroad buggy
it may work with a little trimming.

Talking

thanx guys for the replys I'm going to get the tc5 soon! i wonder if hobbypeople carries it? ill maybe order from towerhobbies ill see.

most of my friends are cyclone, tc3, tc4 drifters. I'm into rc drifting to but i use a stock tc3 for drifting. and i use a carbon graphit tc3 for grip but parking lot racing.

how would this car perform in a parking lot? man o' man this car looks sweet i would be nervous to even cruz it infont of my house with the fact of cratching it!
