Yeah I ran offroad for around 7 years(been running TC's for almost 2 years) before I went to Touring Car. I like TC alot more. I really got burnt out on offroad; there just weren't any offroad tracks close that I enjoyed racing at and they were 95% nitro on top of that. You will like TC, it isn't that hard to pick up. Keep me up to date if you are going to the birds and we will help you as much as we can.
