there will be a resurgence in electric racing because of what ROAR (Dawn and the others) have done to make it better

I think you will love this race. Its soo laid back, yet its one of the most competitive races you will ever attend or see! Its become the next best thing to the worlds. The list of international drivers is getting bigger every year and the racing is soo intense to watch.

Former World Champion, Team Kyosho Driver Gil Losi Jr. Will be attending. Gil was the first ever IFMAR World Champion for electric offroad. Gil with his father and family were the founders of Team Losi.Team Losi made after market parts for the RC10 and other various kits. They hit the racing scene in the late eighties with an electric kit called the JRX-2. The JRX-2 premiered at the 3rd annual SRS Cactus Classic sponsored by Pro-Line in 1989. SRS was called "Scale Racing Sports" at that time and was located in Tempe. Gil is one of the nicest people you will ever meet in this hobby/sport. Team Losi was also the headline sponsor for the first ever Cactus Classic in 1987

nc-hopsing - yeah I heard it is competative but laid back at the same time, you could talk to the pros and get some tips for set ups

elkewbenz - will try to call in dead

My first real off road race car was the JRX2
I used to race fully modified Tamiya super champs and rough riders with CRP, dirtburners etc modifications but when the JRX2 came out everybody was blown away with it, this is why I like losi (look at my signature) they revolutionized off road racing in the 80s

Who?

Root is best known for copying my paint scheme. He has since made up his own and seems to be doing quite better racing since. Maybe I need to change too, Hahaha (And he is attending).

He doesn't know it, but he is a part of "Orange Racing" which gives him absolutely nothing in return.

I am planning to run stock brushless
I read in your flyer 13.5 is allowed but ROAR states 17.5 is equivalent to 27t stock, what can we use

Sean, Dawn can you clear this up please
Thanks

I started with it as a base color, that is what makes you a member of Orange Racing... Humpty is also and don't know it. He will try to claim it as his own though... But I have it on my license plate and have been racing longer than him.
