I've seen 4-mod trail an 1/8th scale at my track....its a pretty small and tight track.

4wd Mod should outrun 1/8th scale nitro on a tight track with NO problems.

The 1/8 nitro-buggy's need a huge track to gain advantage over a Mod 4WD EP buggy, such as a XXX-4.
At my local track, EP guys have 3-4 sec. better laptimes than 1/8 GP guys. This track is about 30 secs long. Even 2WD outruns the 1/8.

Yup. Regardless of track surface, 4wd is always faster.

I run at a small local track and they only hed one mod buggy entry,so they threw him in the novice gas heats. He CRUSHED us. He is also a pretty good driver and i'm a poor driver,but it seemed every lap he was passing me! They should have thrown him in with the nitro buggies,but we would have had to push him around some . I dont care how fast it is,its still too quiet!!!
