Take a drive you your local track and see what people are running. This might influence your purchase. You might want a 4WD, but if only 3 people are running that, and 20 people are running 13.5 stadium truck, you might be better off getting a truck then racing against the same 3 people, and if 1-2 drop, not racing at all.
