I would go with 1/8 electric..then you can come out to the Nitro Pit and also race...I think 8 scale electric is really going to take off shortly.

To be honest. I would go with the truck for now. 1/8 scale electric has so many different ways to go its not even funny. It is a class that you REALLY want to research before you get into it because if you don't you'll be sorry and so will your wallet. Don't get me wrong, I have an electric 1/8 and i LOVE it, but the truck is so much simpler.

Hemi, you can race 8 electric at SRS as well as The Pit. They dont have a separate class yet but I am sure its coming..I think 8E will be the next big thing like how Truggy exploded

Thanks man, i ran 70 weight in the rear last week (that's what came in it from the guy i got it from) and my back end was constantly going over my front.

While I'm on for the night I'll ask if anyone has a race ready SRS truck set up for sale. --i'm trying to get another friend into this (he'll be number 4)
looking for either xxx-t mf2 or t4
w/ 10.5 brushless
ESC
lipo
etc.
basically everything but the transmitter and servo

anyone?

1/8th all the way. Start with nitro. If you want to try electric 1/8th later on, look us up for a test drive. I have both and love to run them.

If you are refering to 1/8" scale at SRS there will not be any 1/8 at SRS until after the Cactus. If you have a 1/10 electric Next Saturday the 28th. will be the first race on the new track.
