F1 and GTP would be great if anyone would race them around here. I am not going to waste money again on a class that everyone supposedly is going to run and then not be able to race it, did it with the F201, 1/12th twice and mini T. So as much as I love these Gtp cars I am want to know about a car I can actually race.

Most tracks will start a class for any car if you have 3 to 4 people to run in it.

and if not then they are not supporting the sport or hobby and only in it for what they can get out of it! (Sales) on Parts!!!!!!!!!

I know I had a Carpet track back in the late 90s at a friends hobby shop.

We ran F1 for the most part but open up for people that wanted to run in other classes.

I help run a track here in Durham and if 3 people show up we let them run, heck sometimes 2. Problem is to get 3 people at the track you need 6+ people with the car who want to race it, and it seems getting everyone to show up at the same race is kinda tough for everything but touring car thats all.

Yes I see well we raced almost everynight we had some kind of race going on LOL.
I guess that would come down to not having much to do LOL But hey what can you do. Wife would even come down and hang out. with most of the girls there.

And about 2 to 3 times a week we had a BBQ going on well

Default What are GTP cars?

Marty, can you please explain what the concept is behind the GTP cars you have mentioned and posted pictures of? Are these 1/10 scale pan cars? What's the difference?

since I am still waiting for this car, I believe it will be rear drive with motor amid ships driven with a short belt. it will hav cantievered shocks front and rear independant cantilevered suspension.

If it is anything like what marty has designed for his f1 and touring cars it should be a beaut!!

Cheers
