I love an open class as much as anybody, but I can understand why people want the engine rules by price. But I just feel the $200 engine rule is outdated. Just bumping it up to $250 gets ya much more bang for your buck.

I'm starting to get quite the collection of engine/pipe combos together, so I'm pretty much set no matter what the tracks rules.

I have a break at $150 / $200 / $250 and stop at $280. Yes, I like the last one but have some in all the price ranges.

So here is something we can talk about, and not all tracks, clubs or events need to be the same. Just would be nice if they were.
Thanks for the list, it is very informative

Paint is done for the RC Pro On-Road Champioships but it looks so nice I don't want to race it! Guess I'll run the PF8 again.

Daniel, I was told by many racers that you have the car to beat. Ok, fast guy I'll be chasing you . Well, I guess I'll be chasing lots of fast guys at this race. Looking forward to learn a few things from this race, AWESOME.

I have been working on my MBX6 to GT conversion for a while but will not be able to finish it for the RC pro (sigh)
also trying to design a shorter chassis for the dm1 1/7 to make it the same wheelbase as the gtp and to make it lighter

we need more manufacturers in this class of racing
once the serpent comes out hope mugen, losi, xray and even AE comes in and build a GT specific car
but before this happens maybe I can get my chassis conversions out there to convert offroad buggies to GT

Team C makes a high quality kit for 1/8 GT as well.

Body looks really good. If I may, where'd you get the clear Kyosho Ferrari body? I've been on the hunt for one and haven't been able to find one..
