It will be my first time running a 1/10 modified truck at Linton Sunday April 6th.
Not legal in RC Pro Series or ECNS or even ROAR! 2wd 1/10th trucks only.

1 of the gas trucks tried to go 10 minutes on a fill up to keep up with us and he ran out. That killed his chances flaming out on such a big track having to lose so much time going back to pit road to re-start off of pit road.

My gas truck could go 10 minutes with the stuffer out of the tank, but that would not be legal capacity of the tank.

We were the only 2 electrics in the race with the rest of the main gas trucks. Only 2 Losi trucks in the race with most of the field Associated.

Smoother on the bottom with plenty of top end. Didn't even use any negative throttle expo at that big track with a loamy surface.

I would expect that the trucks could keep up much better if they were on a smaller track where they could be tuned to run for 15+ minutes & not give up anything on the top end. I'm guessing that nitros were faster in qualifying since the event took place on a large 1/8th scale track.

I ordered spares since they are availible still.

The truck came out in 1999.

They were alot faster down the long straights. I had to make sure I did not wreck. I made one mistake and all most lost a 12 second lead. I wreck twice the whole thirty minutes that was what made the diffenece.

If it is 2wd then it must follow these rules for the RC Pro Series:

They have said I can run a 4wd stadium truck in 2wd form.

I'm going to a trophy race in Linton not all the way out here craps.

It should be within specs. I'll have Jarman take a look at it to be sure.

I'm running my B44 with a 2wd RS4MT HPI.

Gonna be sweet to run 2 classes back to back, this will be my first time doing that.

If it is in 2wd form then it should be legal.

I never realized how similar the e-firestorms rear end was to the t-4s rear end untill I looked at those pics. I knew that the front end was very similar. You guys may want to look at the e-firestorms trans & see if it will fit on a t-4.
