I have tried to go directly to the SRS web site but no info except the dates...


one last question: what the hot set up for tires at the track in 2wd buggy and 4wd buggy?


Thanks guys
More information on the 25th Cactus Classic will be posted soon.
There will be 2wd buggy and truck, 4 wheel, Short Course. Class information and motor rules are to come. As for tires, the shop will have lots of tires so save on the packing and get them in the shop. Keoni is working on Cactus Classic tire discounts similar to last year.

I am in the market for a new ESC and so far the Novak is not looking too impressive reality wise. It seems I have heard of several going "Poof" Humpty what is up with that?

A Kinetic and Pro SC went poof in Tucson on Sunday. Unfortunately the Kinetic was mine. I'm sending it off to Novak tomorrow and debating on whether to update the rest of my fleet with Kinetic's or go with something with a lower chance of smelling up the garage.

I love my havoc pro but I did have one smoke and while I was waiting for a new one I put a lrp spx in and I hated it, it didn't make any power and the motor was a lot hotter and I tried several different gearing and profile combinations, I also got to run a tieken (or however you spell it) and it made good power but not at smooth as the havoc and after a few minutes it was acting like the battery was dumping then a few laps later the power came back and from what I've herd from guys that run it is that it is a common problem. With all that being said ill stay with my havoc pro. Plus novak has a great warranty program. Just my 2 cents

Hows the Castle Creations stuff? Does anyone make a reliable ESC and motor? I'm thinking about the new Durango SC truck but if there is not reliable gear for it I may just pass.
