The old lightning truggies are very outdated. Might be OK for bashing, but not really for racing.

It is heavy, doesn't steer very well, doesn't accellerate like the newer truggies do. The lightning was one of the first truggies ever made. Technology has come a long way since then.

I guess you could compete, but it will be alot harder to drive fast than one of the newer truggies. The lightning is a tank.

how fast depends on motor gearing etc if its box stock with the .26 30 feet its topped out need a bigger clutch bell,and as far as tanks go some of us can drive a tank as fast as some can drive an ultralight

funny you say that i have to disagree, my buddy i race with and share cars and tools with has a b3 and he still takes first no prob when he races,

unless your racing on a very serious pro style the need for the brand new tech isnt always a need at your local track if your a good driver and have a decent set-up(old or new) you can hang with anyone and take most,

i know this from experience.

yes you could just get your set-up right and so you have the speed to stay with the rest and to your liking and it will come down to your driving.
