ya, if you have a 1/10 buggy and a 2wd short course your all set. i was actually running a stock brushed motor in my 2wd and i was keeping up well with the brushless 2wd's. eventually the brushed motor wore out and i went brushless. you would just need to get some lipos like andrew said...

on another note, Don are you confused or what! heard you got a losi now you traitor!

I'm so out of the loop on all of this stuff. I don't even know the classes anymore! Do you guys have a class that runs 1/10 4wd buggies? I think I will try to venture up there at some point this week just to check things out. Are any of you guys going to be at the track between 6-7pm this week?

Well, I just soldered in some batteries and both of my cars somehow still run. I will do a little bit of motor maintenance and throw on some new brushes (I know, take it easy!) and try to make it up there sometime this week. What kind of fees are involved with practicing? Is there electric at the track for practice?

You will have to talk to Doug the owner at the shop about fees for practice, but its $20 for non-members on race day, unlimited classes.

Awesome. I will be up there at some point this week to check things out. I need someone to harass with hundreds of questions too. Hopefully there is someone up there! Is the hobby shop in the location as the track?

I'll be there. What kind of tires are the 2wd buggies running? A red compound Losi tire and/or an M3 or R3 proline tire?

i run M3's on my SC, but i never had a 1/10 buggy yet so im still deciding what i wana run. the track is really nice, its packed nice and smooth so i think somthing like barcodes or something would work good. but we wont know until we try it.
