After 25 years of racing, I took a 2 year break. Now I'm back again. I hate it because I'm sucked in!! hehe Anyways, if Durham is too far for you, there are plenty of offroad tracks around. Plenty...

Yeah, someone suggested it so we tried it. That's what we run now. I didn't really notice that much of a difference between that and 17.5T when we switched over. However, when I went to another track to run 17.5T, it felt dog slow. hehe

No, I only have one 1/12. I rarely race 17.5 now so I cannot justify buying a separate car other than being a car whore. haha Which I'm trying to avoid again. I wanted to get back into the hobby and stay cheap. But that didn't work out. At least I'm trying to stick with one car. Although I keep sticking another 1/12 in the online shopping cart. I just haven't hit the order button. Fighting off temptation!!!

Anyways, I rebuild the front end, damper tubes, rear diff, and center shock oil between every race weekend. So it's no biggie to switch setup if need be for different tracks. Mostly it's side spring, spur (75 for 17.5 and 80 for 13.5), and tires.
