anyone running a 4wd sc should check out the new tenshock motors, just got me a 4000kv 4 pole 550 size can its the sc401 from a guy on the thread in offroad, he is from richmond, ky so it shipped in one day. It has more power than anything else I have tried, it's $59 and temps and runtime where really good. Makes my losi feel light

There are a lot of Mini Revoís that where at the dirt bowl. Some of the racers only had just that. Sooner or later they are going to be looking for a place to adopt them. Do you guys think it would be practice to attempt a class for them? They are tuff and fast but im not sure how they will do on your track.

We have played around with them before on the track. I thought they did ok I don't know what other peoples opinions on that would be but the ruts would probably upset them fairly easily. If there are enough to show up, I'm sure Matt would make a class for them. I'll double check but I'm pretty sure he said there has to be 5 to even start a class so there will be enough marshalls.

I've talked to Matt about this last year also, and Dillon I believe you are correct. As long as there is enought to run the class 5 entries matt will run them. Bring them out!!!

I ran my vandetta a little bit last year and it was good on the bigger track. Of course it wasn't as fast as your Tekin.

I am so upset about the money and time I have in the Vendetta buggy. Itís also the fastest car I own and its nothing more than a shelf queen now.

I remember people having them early in the year last year and I thought they got around the track pretty darned well, for whatever reason people just quit bringing them. One kid was running one with the rookies/kids there at the end of the year. I'm not so sure the Vendetta would handle the track as well but if I still have mine by then and people bring them then what the hell, I'll give it a go or two.

I know a bunch of people went out and bought those Losi mini-SCTs too.

That would be awesome if we could get a Vendetta class going. My purple buggy is begging to come out and spank some ass! When I make it up for practice, I will have to bring it and see what happens.

Your right. I forgot about those. I bet there are over 25 of them out there.
