Got my E-Truggy ready.

On the subject of E-Truggy, whats everyone going to be running, what brushless system you using?


I'm in for
8th E-Truggy
10th 4wd buggy (cyber 10b w/ novak havoc pro esc and 8.5 SS brushless motor)

Maybe a 3rd - either 8th nitro buggy or 8th E-buggy



Also, is 4s Lipo the limit for E-truggy and E-buggy?

I can't say much about the MUT edition...I had a LAM edition Mugen!

Gas Truck is the only class that could get me back into nitro. But sadly, I think its gone forever.

Is that because you can't handle the raw power of the .21's

I got to drive Brads Mugen for a few laps last year and it was good, but, nothing great. I think he had an EB Mods in it at the time. Most of the .21's I've tried have underwhelmed me. Its the sound that .21s put out:

Simultaneously loud and uninspiring at the same time.

Nothing sounds as good to me as a .12 CVR with an AE Smoothie pipe.

Still to this day some of my most memorable races occured in the Gas Truck class.

This is THE famous (or infamous depending on who you are!) RC10GT I won in a raffle at the Altoona Raceway back around 2005:

That's because ALL of the .21's you've tried cost under $100 and lasted 1 weekend. Plus your lack of application of air filter oil!

I remember the "Dudley Crew's" trip to G's last year when your much cooler younger brother wheeled your Nitro car. He said the car ripped, but then again he's not a little girl.

I have an idea...call up THE TEAM and see if they still have any of those GT2's.

I'm sure they would give you some so they wouldn't have to inventory them again this year! Get them ready to run with your spares and rent them out for the weekend...6 make a class

sounds like another class is in the works...
