I usually run Stock SC and 1/8th Scale E-buggy on the same day. One practice lap before each heat, I'm good to go. Stock SC sure seems a lot slower though

Probably going to ditch the ST and pick up a eb48.2, definitely not getting rid of my 4x4 sc but driving my slow ST then throwing my 4x4 on the track I'm all over the place haha, rather drive different classes that are similar in power and speed

Im completely sold on 2wd buggy and 4wd short course. That's the classes I really wanna run on offroad racing.
People that say 4wd Short Course is a hack fest i disagree. Its normally really smooth and fast. I usually dont wreck. But if I have several on my tail end i just let them pass because thier truck is faster than mine.

at my track i usually run 17.5 stadium truck with open speedo, open 2wd sct, and open 4wd buggy. honestly, i like the challenge from going to one class to next! 4wd buggy is hands down my fav class but it makes you learn how to drive better. sct lands like a bunch of bricks and its hard to finesse sometimes but that also makes it fun to try to drive it cleaner.

There are like 3 guys that are the fastest(well one is a 12 yo Kidd) but they drive 4x sct smooth as butter all together out in front of whatever other 4x4s show lol and they make it look so easy, but if I try 4x sc, man it's like u said xxxnad2racer , BRICKS

Try going from a Truggy(blunt object) to a Buggy(scalpel) after a 30 minute main " grooving your swing". Not an easy task for anyone. I think being the first one to the stand and getting as many practice laps in as possible helps. Also don't let that beat you before you even start. The mental game is powerful in this sport.

I ssy that it just tskes alot of practice to do. It used to be harder for me to switch from my 2wd sc to my 4wd sc but now, I swith between my 4wd buggy and my 2wd sc and 2wd buggy like its nothing. Just takes some track time to get used to it.

At one time I was running 4wd sc, 2wd sc, mod st, and mini 8. My main focus is 4wd sc. The rest is just play time. I'm usually good after a few warm laps readjusting to whatever vehicle I'm driving.

Im going to have to get used to running 2 classes because that's what people
at my tracks are doing. Now im not going to run 3 or 4 classes because I just dont have the know how or determination for it.

I run 17.5 2wd short course and just recently went to 8.5 mod 2wd buggy and I'm having a real hard time adjusting. Crazy fast buggy and different attributes. However it makes my short course driving better.

Driving buggy does highly improve your driving of any other class!!

I run e buggy and 4x4 sct outdoors/ 2wd mod sct and 2wd mod buggy at my small local indoor track/ and 4x4 sct, mod 2wd sct and ebuggy at larger indoor tracks. My 4x4 buggy just gets used on practice days cause nobody really runs that around where I live.

It only takes a couple laps to adjust. When I first started racing it was a lot harder. I race 2wd and 4wd buggy.
