Marshalls is actually my hometown track. we have electric touring, both foam and rubber, mini cooper, 18r class. You can run lipo or nimh, whichever u prefer, there is some debate on 17.5 brushless. Th only TC motor we run is the stock house motor. any other questions just ask

I'd hate to buy a motor for one race. Well, maybe

Do you know what kind it is and how much?

My minis all have Tamiya oil shocks and Tamiya ball diffs. Is that ok?
Is there a tire rule on the mini? I usually run HPI, but I probably have a Tamiya 60D set I could bolt on.

I went to the website looking for track pictures. I didn't see any of the outdoor track. Can anyone direct me to some pics please?

Any other tracks within an hour or so?

Thanks!

----Dale

Ace is correct...20 for the motor but,thats without brushes and springs.See above for the brushless info.Mini is box stock except for the tires (any)and aluminum steering arms(the easily broken parts).Can motor,stock pinion.If your around come anyway someone probably will have a spare motor on hand you could use if absolutely neccesary.Mario.
