Hey REVO,
How have you been? Lookin' forward to runnin' up to Altoona this spring. I'm tired of WINTER already!! I see on earlier posts that you are planning to lengthen the course. Any details on the changes? Got a new 8ight-T but its still scattered across my shop bench waiting for upgrade parts and re-assembly. I'll probably be bringing my son along this year as he is interested in running the Ten-T. What all do you plan to run this year?

I have seen those Ten-T's race and they can easily hang with the big truggies. They have some speed with a little less suspension travel.

Yeah,the Ten-T is pretty tough looking.The only problem Iv seen with them the most is the rear A-arm were the hub carrier attaches is weak and it brakes real easy.The kid Brian from State Collage who bought my CEN stuff broke his a-arms were the pin goes in!!!They came out with a buggy 810.It has the same suspension as the Ten-T.

Yep, still have the truggy and the buggy is a race roller. I have the hot bodies ve8 that Cody ran last year if I need that too. Both boys will be running rc8be's this season. I figured the electric route for them would help me keep my sanity and let me stick to nitro. So, what ever class has the best attendance is where I can run.
