it says 1/10th mod george

its going pretty good here in portland but wayyyyy too many racers lost to SC!!!

the guys that are racing sc will never want to race real race cars for some reason and that sucks . no new racers , basically just new sc basher/racers


i know this will strike a nerve with some but oh well

I thought the new Short Corse trucks whould put a dent in the 1/10 truck classes. Especialy because you can get everything for 200 bucks in most cases. Now there is 4wd SCT's so watch out in that class too.

1/10 Electric truck is making a come back at are track in Arkansas it has helped My 1/8 buggy driving a LOT and has made me WAY FASTER. I like the 1/10 Mod Truck Class it is Fun and helps make you a better drive if you can drive a 1/10 truck FAST you can HALL A$$ with a 1/8 buggy.

yup, adding classes inevitably thins the herd in other similar classes. i knew it would happen when they added the SC/slash classes, and it did, and now with 4wd SC trucks coming along I think the old 1/10th truck class will go the way of the albatros or unicorn.
