It's a cool class, curious why you don't use the USGT motor with it? Similar performance to a open 25.5 motor, but at least half the cost.

Simple we DON'T believe in a spec motor for a class. You can run any motor you like when your down here. We prefer Trinity!

Remember World GT - WGT-R: We run 2 cell shortys with 25.5 and striped tires (foam) it's very simple. Our classes died years ago in both. Now we are getting them going again. .We started the GT12 class and now we are starting GT10. There is a video of the first race our second race will be outdoors this Sunday. The chassis used at the first race was a BMI- CRC SE and CRC- WGT-R not sure what CRC was the other car. I've got a CRC- SE. Have a Top -Speedmerchant and more CRC's and BMI's coming.

too bad you guys are looking to promote Pro10/235mm cars. they are awesome -- and big outdoor tracks would be great places to showcase them
