It's very rare that they run 19t in offroad. All it takes is about five people and Slim will run a class for it. I'm pretty sure that if you have Mike or Slim announce it over the PA that people are trying to get A 19T class going you should be able to get aenough to run it. I will be there tomorrow and will run 19t. Put the word out now and rally some people.

i need a T3 asoon i get my new b18c
i want to get a 4wd....i dont know what to get, i want a shaft drive one mabye a bj4 or kyosho lazer do they stock parts for those cars at the track?
I've been going there on and off for maybe three years. Always onroad until last fall...until I got bit by the 4wd bug.

SoCal doesn't carry parts for the Lazer, but Speedtech and Ultimate doSoCal CAN carry them, they just don't. Jim was asking me about them and I think if a few more people asked him, he would. They're already a dealer for Kyosho. Hobbytown can get parts for them really easy, too. Speedtech is pretty close and they have good prices.

There are a few of us there now, so you should probably be good on parts. IMO, they're the easiest cars to run, they're great out of the box (once you buy tower braces), the stock setup is goox everywhere and parts are CHEAP.

Another LLLLLAAAAZZZZUUUURRRRR!

I race at Revelation on Saturday nights and SoCal whenever I can get there...I love both of those tracks. Dana (owner of Rev) is a great guy and he always seems happy to see you. Saturday night at Revelation is always "jumpin'".

I've been to ARC once...pretty nice, too. It sounds like we have a pretty decent IE crowd here...maybe we can schedule a night to go to ARC or Rev and meet up.

Dude - I'm still building the Lazer. Got it for 275 and took the 200 I saved from not getting the BJ4 for a LRP Sphere and a Novak 7.5...it made more sense to get the Kyosho seeing that it's a competitive car....Body is getting painted and I should have it down there in about 2 weekends.

Hey All

Hows the 4X4 turn-out??? Does anybody run the BJ4(not Worlds)??? Do they carry JConcept arms, knuckles and other spares???

I've got a BJ4 with a 6.5 Brushless to run. Got it off a Great Guy(Mr. Snookie)from Hot Rods.


Thanks!!!

Brad

"Snookie"...LOL

Friday and Sunday are big 4wd days...we just got lucky last night with 4 and they ran a couple mod 2wd guys with us (6 total for both).

There are several BJ-4 cars on a good night...I don't think they carry the arms, though. They have LOTS of AE parts, though.
