I will be waiting a bit for one of the new .28 pro motors to come out. I looking at the Orion / Picco, should be out in a few weeks. Plus I have heard quite a few rumblings about ROAR rules limiting displacement in truggy classes to .28. hence why im going to wait a bit.

lots of snow here in wisconsin right now anyway.
ETRacer,

Here's the rule for the ROAR MT class:

http://www.roarracing.com/downloads/ROARMTRules.pdf

First national race for ROAR MT will be this year in September I believe (Boulder City, NV)

And guys, we also have a special on X1-CRT this month for $549.99

Steve Wang

p.s. C.verano, nice looking truck Where do you race now?

Thanks Steve...I haven't done too much offroad racing, still doing the 1/8th scale onroad thing. I built the truck just to learn things about it for work. I hope to go out and try it soon.

BTW www.maxxtruck.com looks good.

I can't beleive the Z brace isnt included, what a rip. Oh well, I've got my CRT on order now. I'll be setting it up with a Picco P7-R evo/JP1, should be interesting to see how well that motivates it. What are you guys running for diff/shock oils? Waldron told me that the oils included in these kits are junk, so I'm going to put the normal Ofna stuff in right off the bat.

I wonder if a light weight milled chassis will be coming out? Aluminum rear hubs would be awsome to, hmmm...

Well.... as per Ofna's website, they are. The CRT is listed as a compatible vehicle for the Z-brace, so I got one. GUESS WHAT!!?? No go. I complained to OFNA, but they still haven't taken the CRT's off their list of cars it will work on. Very odd, seeing as now they have a second Z-brace listed on their site with compatibility for only the CRT. ::frustrated::

Get the new one.

Thanks for checking it out, we are just starting out, so we'll be adding more and more products to it. Are you still in the southern cali area? Let me know if you are and when you'll be out there testing out the truggy
