Currently I only have a Traxxas E-Maxx and have only played in the dirt and now ready for my on road experience so excuse my limited knowledge of the onroad cars.

Thanks in advance
Even when we had bad batterys and slow motors in the 90's these cars were super fast. I would say a nitro track would be perfict for these cars, I would also suggest that you use the 235mm conversion on this car it will be much easier for you to drive. I would say learn how to drive one of these you will be fast enough. I would start with a 17.5 and 4cell you will just as fast as a
mod tc.

Speaking of the 235mm version what is changed here beside the rear axle and hubs? Also will there be a 235mm version or do you have to buy a 200mm car and a conversion kit? As we have no 200mm class here any 200mm parts donīt make sense.

Thanks for the info, now I am really looking forward to this car and it did cross my mind on using the 235mm conversion. Here is the track I hit on weeks, but at this time I am just using the off road. They run 1/10 and 1/8 lots of tc5 though this video shows the 1/8 guys.

Lets not get carried away... While a 17.5 4 cell 1/10th pan car may be fast enough for a beginner to have fun there's no way in hell it's keeping up with a mod TC with any sort of competent driver. A 10.5/19T 4 cell might be close, but anything short of that will be lagging behind.

No racing at this time unless someone can tell me if someon in Los Angeles will have this class on asphalt? For the mean time I will be running with nitro guys at this track http://youtube.com/watch?v=xYVOdW6Dt9M got the ok this weekend that I can run my electric on this track, which will make me the only one.

This track run 1/10 tc and 1/8 I think I'll be running with the 1/10 guys for the fun of it.

The Gen X 10 manual is up on the CRC website. Looks like they're getting close.
