I like the factory mod guys running in 19t it makes the level of competition that much better. I like a chance to see how I compare. Plus when you fly with turkeys your just that, Fly with eagles and your what?

Plus finishing in the D main with the pro's is better then the B main in the sportsman class without pros.

If your trying to be noticed , you'll be seen more by the scouts running with the pro's. Hopefully your good and dont take one of them out!


Just my thoughts, I guess I am one of those that likes to work at getting better by running against the best
. People that are successful at what they do generally have the swim or sink mentality , have patience, and understand that through hours of practice and studying that you may or may never get closer to winning a championship .
But if the level of competion is that much tougher, it is respectful to be in D main with eagles. If you give all you got it feels good because you tried .

The point is have fun at what ever level your at and enjoy your childhood passion of playing with super cool toy cars!. Lets stop worrying over whos pro or not.

I could'nt say it better.
It deffinitly will give you an idea where your at in skill level, set up, and tweakabilty of your products you choose to race with.
No matter if your all equal or not.
It would boil down to the best radio set up I guess.

1. Is for more track time?
2. contract?
3. or just cherry pickin'

The main reason Team Losi races 19T at the major events is because we are there, we have spent the $$ to be there, so why not race a 2nd class to promote the cars. Also track time is valuable as well. Also 19T is the largest class at all these events.

Let's face it folks the "pros" do this to have fun just like the rest of us. They just have the talent to get a few bucks out of it.

At a big race I can see where running 2 classes will help. There's no subsitute for track time.

At the local races modified is too hard on equipment. One slight mistake and you're changing suspension parts. At least in 19t you have a chance of driving away from a wreck.

Wasn't 19T included at big events specifically for more track time? If not, what was the original reason for including it at every major on-road event in the US?

I don't know the economics of putting on a large race, but hopefully that's less about greed and more about making events more enjoyable for everybody.

Why do the "pro" racers get picked on so much on rctech? dows anybody think that guys like Rick Howart or Barry Baker would be less capable of winning races without sponsorship? Why are the "pros" treated like in-human driving robots?

Whats wrong with the best drivers winning the races? Does anybody really feel that the best drivers should be eliminated from certain classes so that less talented drivers can win? Would any of you feel like a winner knowing you only won because the drivers that are better than you were not allowed to compete?
