Probably the OS .12tr. The decision is being made easier because the MT12 seems pretty hard to get a hold of.

You will be happy with the OS motor. Never had one that didn't work great.

Keep checking the website for updates. Things are progressing nicely. I still need to find a source for clay. Everyone that has it can't get to it because it is to muddy.

Was by th enew building yesturday and it was coming alon nicely. It has the roof and 1/4 of the sides are done. It should really take form buy the end of the week with the warm weather.

As for electric taking off time will tell and especially in the 4wd electric. Would be nice to see it happen but I personally don't see it. I think 2wd electric will be stronger this year and at Chris's new place but 4wd has never been really big anywhere that I know of. It seems to be more like a specialty class and is run at bigger races.

Gas seems to be taking over because everyone can make power and be more on a equal playing field. Almost everyone can by a 1hp motor plus for less that 150 bucks and have all the power they could ever need in 1/10th truck at least.

I guess we will just wait and see. I'm hopping CHris does well.

WYD - thanks for encouragement.

Bigtbone - I give up what worries you?
What worries me is I may never be able to race again having to guess what you want. LOL
seriously if you have concerns you need to voice them, or else they will never be solved.
Like I tell my wife - I try but I can't read minds.
Thanks
Chris

Chris today I say a contractor rolling some red clay over here in Mechanisburg. If you go down RT15 going towards Gettysburg get off at the Bowmansdale exit. Turn Left at the bottom of the rapm and follow that for about 3 mile til you go down a very steep hill. At bottom of hill turn left. Follow that til the stop sign. Turn righ under bridge and sharp left. Follow out a few miles and on your right you will see the piles of red clay. I wonder where they got that stuff from.

I will check it out. I found some junk in west york at vulcan materials, it had lots of little rocks - about 4 times bigger than a grain of sand. I need to find some stuff soon, no later than mid march. I have a couple more people calling me back but it's not looking good. I would prefer yellow clay - I think it holds together better than the red stuff. I figure as long as I have to pay for it I want it perfect.
