Default scenario

thought this might be fun for thought

Assuming that Battery numbers were exact, motor numbers were exact and the tire was pre-built by someone not driving and no sauce was added.....same radios, same servos, same esc's....same RX....same tx batts, same final drive ratio, ....BOX STOCK SETUPS etc etc etc.....

but,

BK is running a traxxis bandit
and
Local hot shot is running a (simply for example) FTB4

who wins?

Well, I'd think that would come down to driver experience and skill. But if you assumed they were the same driving style and skill exactly, then I'd go for the better race chassis, which ever that may be. But how do you get the planetary alignment to have such a race. Hmmm...that is the question. LOL

A skilled driver will always do better then a local. So I would say BK is the choice.

I've seen people put some new tires and a little effort into Rustlers and be surprisingly quick in Stock Truck here. Not very often but it's been done. I'd say go with the pro driver
