E stuff can blow up at any time, just like an OS conrod. E is not cheaper, not more reliable. But if your stuck with mixed 15 min mains until e gets its own class....it might be the fastest way around the track.



lol yea thats the other reason why i,, dont care for electric speedos is the programing on the laptop, to change your settings. i have a rc18t with a mamba and the dam thing ,will have to right settings. that i put it on and then the next time theres ,no brakes lol . thats why i like nitro.

i understand about if your racing to the top, im just talking about racing at club races not big races. i race in the sportsman buggy, class but i think if i had more practice. i proberty could be, in the pro class.

They understand its still a teething process and will NOT be charging you if stuff fails a month or 2 outta the "written warranty".

Just wanted to clear up that statement.
I poofed a Tekin. They fixed it quickly and sent it back to me. Just follow the instructions posted on their site to get a RA# to speed things up.

So far their taking good care of me.

dam 15 minute heats , i live in pa all the club races, i been to have 5 minute heats and 20 to 25 minute mains .... i dont have a local track to, practice so i just to much as i can, at the track i go to. i only race one car, so a gallon of fuel last me a bit longer.


most of the time when i race at club point races , theres the regular guys who are there every weekend. most of the people who show up, arent there every weekend .

Depends on where your racing. 800 isn't even b main where I'm at. No way going to be competitive on a budget out my way.
