Its cheaper than drag racing 1/1 scale! I'm in Pacifica, just south of San Francisco. **Waits for gay jokes.**

good choice.. now just pick up the buggy!.. they share a lot of parts between the two and you'll enjoy the buggy just as much as truggy.

OH and I hear very good things about the Odonnel motor

Hey Brad, I live in norcal too Stockton to be exact. There are some pretty cool tracks around here. For an engine a good race .21 is the winning ticket the ninja always looks good at the track I run an os speed, a friend of mine runs a Pro Twister Mods V-spec (that thing shreds regular vspece) but theres nothing wrong with a stock vspec. These engines are very easy to tune and hold a tune better than most. IDK what your budget is but you cant go wrong with a vspec.

For diff oil or shock oil, AE, losi, mugen, ofna. I usually order everything I need from amainhobbies. As for tire glueing there are 2 styles of rims out. The normal type with a channel and the newer style where the outside rim is missing. For the first type you need to glue the inside bead and channel and then the outside bead. Last when they are all glued up put a nice bead between the rim and tire. Do this for the inside and outside of the rim. My avg. gluing time is about an hour for 4 tires. The newer style you get to skip the outside bead part and go right to the bead between he rim and tire. Also I have had great results in balancing the truggy tires. I use a hudy wheel balancer and modeling clay. It helps performance and consistency which translates into lower lap times. Best of luck to you and prob see you at the track.

The O'Donnell setup sheet is based off of Losi shock oil. I have been using Ofna diff oil with good results. Any diff oil will work though. Pick up what ever diff oil your local hobby shop carries, but if you want to build your shocks like the setup sheet states then you will have to use losi shock oil.

Welcome back to the hobby.
Remember to have fun.

Thats what I wanted to hear! Figured they used a certain brand when testing/developing/racing. Frank...I honestly havent even looked into local tracks yet. I know of Delta RC, but sadly thats it for my geographical RC knowledge. Being in the city slicker area, about all we have local (without crossing bridges) are on road indoor tracks. I have a coworker that races at Delta RC and will for sure be looking for more tracks. I didnt buy this thing to bash, thats what my 15 year old RC10T is for, LOL

I was wondering because I only know of a few tracks in this area. Delta of course, CRV in madera, Prarie City in RanchoCordova, Riverfornt in Marysville, Rescue near eldorado hills in rescue and thats about it unless you go way up and out. Also here is a local site that might interest you empirerc.net They post most of the local races and videos ect...

Thanks for the links! I'm not opposed to driving a couple hours to tracks, so maybe you'll see me soon.

For shock oil Losi is cheap and pretty good. Run 37.5 front and 32.5 rear with black springs front and rear.

For diff oil Mugen and Kyosho are the best but GS is good too. I have not tired the Ofna, AE, or Losi. Try 7k front, 20k center, and 3k rear.
