Mate, I accidentally purchased and glued some b4.1 front wheel hubs (yellow) and ribs. If your at the next Saturday meet you can have them. (assuming you've not upgraded to hex)

Hi TRF,

Both classes get equal numbers when referring to the 2wd models, generally Trucks are run together as they both perform fairly equal to each other

The motor for this class is a 10.5 turn brushless sensored motor and you will also need an ESC that can perform "blinky" mode, which means it is locked at 0' Timing/Boost. Motor timing is allowed

Any other questions, please do not hesitate to throw me a PM

Thanks,

Reedy

Actually of late, SCT have dropped in entry numbers everywhere, while stadium trucks have remained fairly constant. But if it were me starting out again, I'd go with SCT only because in a side to side encounter with another truck the SCT is more likely to stay off it's roof. They are also slightly longer which makes them a little more forgiving and it could be argued they are easier to get tyres for, but that is really marginal. I have the feeling that the days of having a heat of 2wd SCT, a heat of 4wd SCT and a heat of Stadium Trucks at a clubby are long gone, but it only takes 6-8 people on a regular basis to change that.

Get hold of a 17.5 and a blinky esc, and come and join one of the funnest classes to race in, it will really teach you how to drive in proximity to other cars

Looking at past entries stadium truck has slightly more entries lately.
The good news is that they are both spec classes using a sensored 10.5 motor and zero timing electronic speed control.
I say the final decision should be based on what your friend prefers the look of.

Hey Joel, I notice you are selling your XB4. What 4WD have you got in mind next? Are you going 100% AE?
Good price BTW - good luck with the sale.
