And Kevin could wheel a Tamiya, X-ray, VBC, Awesome whatever to the same results I bet.

Seriously all the top brands are just that, top brands. They all can win with the right driver.

TC6 was a great choice for you. If you are not a pro, I would buy the car that the majority have at the track you frequent the most. That will be the best car. Support, help, parts etc is far more important at the club level.

Aus = 7.7m sqkm, 20m people

I know all about spread out


You can race mod on tight indoor carpet tracks too, you just need skills/balls!

+1 to Keven's ability. Watched him take someone else's car he'd never driven before and went .1 sec a lap faster than he did with his own car that day. And no it wasn't another TC6.2.

A car doesn't make the driver look good, the driver makes the car look good.

Go with what is supported at your track unless you are one of the few who needs no setup help. I run Xray primarily for the setup help I can get at the track. A lot of other capable cars out there. If I didn't have that setup help I might be driving something different still. I can do okay tuning wise, but it always seems to help to have others who are driving the same car give their input.

Canada 9,984,670 kmē, 35m people.

Amazing we have any racing at all with those numbers, yet somehow we have enough guys almost every week (fall to spring) to race mod TC on tight US style carpet tracks. And here's our nationals results. Weird eh?

Yeah and Western Canada has one of the oldest, longest running, largest Carpet racing series in the World- WCICS.

I'm not saying it's wrong/right or whatever, just a bit baffling really.

But as said, has synergies with a lot of things that occur in the U.S.A, you blokes are so big you don't need to follow world trends!

Look at the cars that sell well!!

I agree as I said before...skill set and practice, you can drive any top tier kit

Don't forget Hara as he is successful with almost any platform electric/nitro, on/off road. He proves it's mostly the driver.

This has been posted before, but Adam Drake has a very good perspective.
