. Thanks for the compliment.
I'd suggesting posting on the Hanger 30 thread to ask the comp committee about potentially running the atomic in Scale Spec. The likely issues I see are:
1) Is there room to add weight to bring it up to 1450g? Is there room to gear it appropriately? Being 4wd, you wouldn't want it to have a power/weight advantage.
2) Mini tires might be grippier than the HPI D-Compound. Mini's aren't subject to the tire restriction, but they're so tall and tippy they can't really use the extra grip, and they're also at a disadvantage putting power down with 2wd and limited gearing, so it's kind of a non-issue.
3) The body looks like a full-on touring-style body, meaning probably better aero than a typical Scale Spec body. However, I'm sure there are other bodies that would fit the spirit of the scale spec rules.
But without actually racing it in the class, or doing some practice laps with timing and a good driver, it's hard to know. So it's still worth asking.
