I know that 4wd would be easier but I would also like to improve my driving. I already have a mmp and lipo's, I just need a motor and a buggy. I'd prefer to get a used roller plus spares if possible, just in case I might not like it which I doubt I will So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. BTW is there normal racing this sunday and what is the turnout for ebuggy?

Thanks!
Tom
Keep bringging your E buggy I run mine up there and it feels reel nice , I think they will be realy good once I get better tires for the track. I won't be up this weekend but for sure next Sunday. I would realy like to see Ebuggy take off indoors. I am trying to get Mimis to let me run them as well indoors . I am going to keep bringing mine even if for practice I wanna keep warmed up for motoramma this Feburary . If anyone else has a Ebuggy try them out on that clay at bumps they feel awesome .

Wow, all you mod buggy guys are crazy fast. Not surprising I got dead last my first time out in years, lol. I did better each round, so I'm happy. Can't wait to do it again.

Hey Chris did you use that Murf Dog 17.5 in your truck this weekend for that 2nd place finish? Either way nice job on that.

Joe great result on your win. Looks like your Blitz is working well.

Can't wait til Tuesday to practice on the new layout. Have some new tires to try out. Should be interesting.

So I picked up a b4 roller and have a couple questions. This is a new class to me as I have never ran 1/10 2wd buggy.

1. What motor would be good for a beginner in the mod class? But something i could grow into?

2. Will my mmp fit? I did hear I will need to remove the fan. Will that be an issue with temps? If not is there another esc I should look into?

3. What front and rear tires are working well at Bumps? A good set for me to start out with?

4. What is a good mah and c rating lipo to have on hand? I've already got 2 smc 5200mah 24c and a Orion 3800mah 30.


5. Any spares etc to have on hand? Parts that break easily?


Any other recommendations or help is greatly appreciated. Thanks again and I'll see everyone after thanksgiving. Have a great holiday!!

Tom
