Its a good thing all the socal track owners support e buggies. Running with the nitros is encouraged. Each track as a different way to approach it but not a big deal. Must be a the cali progressive thinking.

This year is looking promising for my local tracks. Exhibition class in the state series and it seems people are finally getting interested around here. I am thinking I am going to get one. The track owners have stated to me in person and the forums that electric 8th scales can run with the nitros if less than 3 show up(that is how many they want for a class to be run).

I am waiting on some more details about the 10th scale only track that one of the local shops is building. they intend to have a track for 10th and 8th scale up and running in the next month or so. I wish I could buy both but I can't right now.

Does anyone know the dimensions of the battery tray? I need to know the maximum length and width of the RC8e tray. Trying to determine if two SMC 5200mah 40c batteries will fit as they are a little taller than Reedy 4900mah 35c.

Thanks!

I don't have a tray to measure. But the tray was designed to take two batteries that are at the maximum of the ROAR dimension which is 139mm x 47m x 25.1mm. Bascially, if the SMC is ROAR approved, 2 will fit.
