(3 t4's 4sc10's 2b4's)as for racing i think the offroard course offers more fun than oval course but everybody has favorites by group i mean a group of guys and girl that show up on fridays to race
Just out of curiosity, if a 2s lipo has more punch than a 7 cell nihm, then how come it isn't allowed in the mod, but the 2s is? Just curious.

I just ordered the t4.1 last night so it will be a week or so before I get it. If I get out there before then with my rustler I will talk to you guys. I have been there before. I've raced 3 times before. I have the Green and Yellow Rustler. I finally got it running pretty good (maybe I'm just driving better). Now I will have to get used to the t4.1.

i cant believe you used the words funner and oval in almost the same sentencebasic oval is just 2 drag races and 2 low speed turns to the left in my opinion test your skills on on-road and how much your driving skills improve also you would be surprised at how much speed we getting on on-road course

Default Msg to Gary: Meet up with you Wed.

Gary (or Andy, or anyone that can get a message to Gary), I just wanted to get a message to him as I wasn't sure he was on here. He helped me out with my truck last Friday (a week ago) after I cracked up in my first race and I wanted to let him know I didn't forget; busy week and I'll be in Wednesday. Otherwise, I'll just catch up with him this week.
Thanks all. Chris Ostermueller
