Well, we were looking for something new, different. Something that would appeal to newcomers. Seems the CORR class is the ticket.

We ran one at a local indoor track this past winter and it was fun till the lap guys didnt make it and took you out. You had to stay commited to the wall or you wouldnt make it and when someone came tumbling down well u fill in the blanks. ESPECIALLY the CORR class cuz of the large amounts of newcomers.

That's what Castle says anyhow. But really the 2200 is more than enough motor for buggies and truggies. I run my buggy on 4S and perfect for racing. Anymore and it would be uncontrollable.

What steering servo do you guys use or reccomend? I looked on this site and everyone seems to love the hitec 7955 with titanium gears. Is that too much for the 8 E? And why do they call it cordless?
