Gas trucks? If it's 1/10 gas a mod 4wd can turn much faster lap times with similar drivers. If it's truggy or 1/8 it depends on the track. On a blown out track probably not, but on a smoother track, yeah. They clocked my XXX-4 at 34 mph on the back straight 4 or 5 weeks ago. That was with a 10 x 1 on 4200's, and I still had throttle left when I had to brake. It's the same speed the top 2 truggies were getting clocked at. Point is, unless the track's huge the higher top speed of a truggy won't matter. on a blown track the long travel, width, etc., will. I've been surprised how durable my XXX-4 is after hearing people gripe. I beat the dog out of it at that race in the first round and a half 'cause I ran with no practice on a new layout, and nothing happened. The only breakage was in the 3rd of the triple A's when I lawn darted the table top. I would have broken any car with that hit, LOL. And yeah, you can just cut the wing for shock clearance. That's what I did. The body for the G+ is the Aurora body, Invader was the old style.

There are alot more then just mugens here. You really should check out sin city rc when it comes to 10th scale racing in vegas. Its the best 10th scale track in town by far.
