Default AZ 4WD Buggy

I know we have quite a few 4WD buggy racers in AZ. We might have 1 or 2 at each track on any given day. I just thought we might organize ourselves a bit and gather at whichever track the group chooses so that we have a full class on race day.

I agree with you guys. It is by far the funnest class that I have been a part of.
Who is all going to W3 today? SRS is possible for me, depends on work.

I first had a 6.5 motor when I started, but after two weeks I had a 8.5 so I switched to that motor. Then I mastered the 8.5 and wanted a faster motor but not a 6.5. I would say go with a 7.5. Perfect speed. BTW, I just put in my 6.5 for W3 today
