Default How to be in the modified class

I was going to start racing this summer, but someone said that 1/10 2wd nitro truck class is not that popular. So I was thinking been in the novice class or the modified class but what is the modified class?

Thanks.

the class all depends on your running gear
if you have anything over a .15 engine your in the mod class.

So your saying that someone can have a stocked t-maxx 2.5 and still be in the modified class?

in order to be in it, you have to first spell "modified" right

There's nothing like watching a beginner with way too much motor.
