Default 1/10 truck nitro

I have a GT i been working on getting ready to run. There is no one arround my area running these. Wish the were. I have 2 xray 808s and a kanai-2 1/8 scale buggies and miss the old hard to drive 1/10 2wd. My friend just won a GT off Ebay and maby we can get somethig going in this area. I would dought much will hapen because every one likes the durability and the 4wd of the 1/8 scales. Wish people would not forget were these cars started years back 2wd 1/10 scale. You know parts are cheap for these things you dont need to spend lot of dollars on motors because a $99.00 .15cvr is all the motor you need. It cost almost that much for just a ROD for a quailty .21 motor. Lets try to talk these things back up again.

NOT to mention drive a 1/10 truck well and be a even better 1/8 driver!

As much as I would like to see it come anywhere, I doubt it's gonna happen. Never really was an interest in my area, but I sure wish there was. My gt2 pretty much is just a shelf queen in my trailer.

The first thing I learned to drive was a RC10GT. I raced it last year but since the GT2's price came way down ($170 on RC10.com), I went ahead and bought one. It should be here this week...I'm hoping to run the GT2 next winter.
The local indoor track (Bumps & Jumps - Etters, PA) still has a small group of guys that run 1/10 gas trucks. On one occasion there were 7 of us...not bad at all. Another track in New Jersey has had a few of them too.
I can't afford to run 1/8 nitro, but I need my nitro fix, so I hope Gas Truck doesn't die off completely. The GTs are so easy to work on, and the parts are so much cheaper. I only used one set of tires and less than a gallon of fuel for the entire indoor season last year. Some 1/8 scale guys go through that in a weekend!

I have to admit tha the 4wd 1/8 scale are alot easier to drive but i cut my teeth on r/c cars in a 2wd 1/10 scale so i woud not ever get rid of mine. I also run slot cars wing cars and iroc cars the wing cars is alot faster and easier than the iroc but the irocs are more of a challange to drive you have to have a lot better trigger finger.
