The 1/18th class started out as a mini-t class till the 18t came out. They run all mini's in one class as there usually isn't enough racers to split them.

My 18t is mostly stock with the addition of a mc230cr esc, hitec hs81mg servo, and RAD 400 motor. And I added TC3 steel turnbuckles and 4-40 ball cups and balls studs. I also flipped the suspension arms to gain an extra 10mm of wheelbase. This did help the handling on the track and the truck jumps good.

My 18t does very well on the track that is really bumpy despite 85% or the track being covered in carpet! I do pretty good and compete well against a mambafied 18T!

I think the 18t and mini-t can compete together, but the Half8 is a total beast on a rough track! Although it takes more to get it to go fast!( Mamba and 3 cell lipo) is just ridiculous!

Overall the 18t is a blast to drive on the track, but it does take some getting used it getting bounced around my bumps in the track that you can't even see!

I just got a JConcepts Illuzion Body!!! Looking forward to painting it and using it with my Trinity 1/10th wheel adapters and Proline wheels/AE rally! tires!
That thing is nice

some people race them at my local track, SoCal Raceway....

The only way to get it around the track without crashing from the bumps is to get the MonoTuning extended alu arms and cvds, longer shocks (mini-t in rear, rears in front), and half8 wheels...

I have a 18t with stock suspension, wheels and shocks and can't get it around the track consitently without hitting a footprint and flying 20 ft... very frustrating...
