Hows that for preparation?
It's really not worth it to race if rains. New engine and new bearing all around...

Biggest thing I learnt from running in this was it's not worth it, even for a major event. Unless your not paying for engines and parts... Watched on my radio the engine temp go up and up and up till it got to 320F and called it quits. And it ruins a good track.

Buggy prepared for bad conditions...
