Id go the 22t Johno. It would be nice to see a different branded truck out there. Really both trucks seem to be identical in performance though. So either would do the job.

Cheers Joel

I also like getting some red nail polish and painting around the positive terminals on the batteries to make it absolutely clear which hole the red wire should be going into.

Otherwise maybe make up some connectors without the balance plug (just snip it off) just for using in the car, as it makes it neater and less things flying around.

Also, perhaps mount the transponder up front and hide all the excess wiring in a bundle concealed in some heat shrink tubing.

Hope to maybe see you if I go on Sunday afternoon.
Yeah i was thinking about using straight bullets (i do it on my 2wd) but i didnt have the time. I might do it during the school holidays.
Thanks guys. I hope racing is on tommorw will get there as soon as roman gives the O.K that racing is on so i can help prepare the track.

Myself and Trent would like to start a stadium truck revival at Ryde, I miss racing my old beast of a truck (T4).

It's now a spec class 10.5 blinky.

Who else is interested ?

Nick?
Dave R?
Yung?
Peter O?
Brendan N?
Andrew B?
Sean?
John?
Dan B?
Shane?

I'm currently starting a T4.1 build but will have my old T4 ready for battle.

Get the t4.2, you know you want it!

It's a tragedy truck is now 10.5 blinky. It's too similar to short course.

I think we were the only club who DIDN'T vote for 10.5T. Regardless we agreed at the last committee meeting to keep truck as an OPEN class at club days, so run what you want.

I want all of them.
I've heard the Kyosho is a very good truck from Yung and John.


Will, that Losi RTR truck is a very good deal.
It comes with a sensored ESC and motor which makes it even better value.
I wonder if the ESC can handle a 10.5 ?

Nick is going past the track this morning and will give us an update as to the track condition.

I'm having trouble getting out of bed as i'm coming down with a flu.
