What truck do you have? If you have an older GT, you can just bump it from my box.

I don't know yet. You said you would go if you got your 8th scale ready, right? Why 50/50 otherwise? I don't want to go and then see no gas truck turn out.

On a tight track like LIR they are without a doubt slower. If I can run 25.8-26.0 in my T4, I was 27.3-27.5 with my GT2--but the gap can be closed with some setup and practice time.

Yeah, the Baja 5b kit is ridiculously cool. If you are going to spend the money on one of those--why not consider a 8th buggy or truggy instead? I don't know where you could run the 5b on a track. I know the maintenence is alot more--and I know having 4 or 5 race cars gets to be a pain but I now totally see the reason guys love these things now.

It is pretty sweet, I can nail the triple with it. Now that is fun!
That's probably faster then me driving my t4...... If everybody shows up up you guys can have a good race.

I think carl will be fast, he's up to no good rody style !!

I'm 50/50 because I know the 8th won't be ready but I still want to run my truck. I'll decide later in the week and I'll let you know for sure before the weekend.

I really want one of those Baja, I don't want to race, just beat the piss out of it.

Carl truck looked good and so did Priscos. Darrens also looked pretty hooked.

I don't care about winning, I just want to have fun with my gas truck.

Yea man racing is where it's at but don't go to deep too quick. I wanna have some fun I know some spots that baja would be sick. I love 2wd and 4wd electric off road with lipo brushless it's so painless on the nonsense. You know how johnny rolls.....

LIR competition is like no other in all the classes especially sportsman A-mains.

You will when you see the vineland layout. Me and that track got something to settle. I was doing good in my main after traveling 5hours each way missing practice and driving 15min in qualifing to have the motor connection come off like 2 laps in the race.
