Default Electric racing at L.H.

Hi guys , it`s been a long time since I raced electric and want to get back into it .

What classes are being raced at L.H. ?

Stock , 19T , Mod , brushless , 4wd buggy ?

I plan to buy the XXX-CR and XXX-T CR and maybe a 4wd buggy if there is a class and not sure what to go for far as power plant wise .

Tossed between going brushed or brushless and would like to know which classes are commonly ran so I don`t buy something I won`t be able to race . This will actually be the easy part as I really would have to start all over again for learning how to tune them again .

Any help and suggestions will be greatly appreciated !

dayton is right on with whats going on class wise.

tires.... there are a few options.

4wd i run panther bobcats 4wd in c on the front witha full rear foam in them
rear i run switch 2.0 in c compound with the stock white foam
the other choices are pink tapers

2wd i run bobcat 2wd in c on the front and the same switch 2.0 from my 4wd on the rear

others will run pink tapers on teh rear and a prescrub or dremeled down pink rib on the front 2 rib or 3 depends on steering


truck
i run switch 2.0 all the way around in c compund i use white losi foam

the other fan favorite is pink tapers all the way around or use a dremeled pink directional on teh front

There is a Leisure Hours thread in the "Wisconsin and Illinois" forum.
