I bought this light bar from Hobbytown in Oshkosh. It is made by Ram models Inc. Tel. (847)740-8726. The instructions say you can get blue bulbs for $2 each.

RAM is a good company, I've gotten a bunch of light kits from him. On the off chance anything is wrong they will take care of you.

They work really well in Trans-Am

Apex you have a pm. Add another track!!
I'm not sure about 7.4 but CRC runs (or has run) 1/12 scale with a 55 turn motor. Heard the racing was very close and FUN!

I haven't tried a 21.5 but according to the oval guys it was to be a lipo equivalent of a 4 cell 13.5... so it may be a little faster than the current setup. That's been my reluctance to try one.

Yes Robk I agree people will be buying 17.5 motors but they will have to buy one for this class which is why I put it in my money calculation. Really I'm not trying to fight for any change to the USTA rules and agree this will sort out in time. We just need another alternative to help get people in the door so to speak. And we also are going to stick with the rules but just a few minor add ons just for our club series. Very similar to the changes we make here to the ROAR rules.. when the ROAR race comes its ROAR rules period. Club races there is a little fluctuation.

Let me just add that I think whoever was involved with setup of the USTA and its rules did a great job! Hats off to ya!!

I don't know how, but I seem to have acquired more than a few touring cars. I'm going to re-shuffle some things, and pass some of them on.

If anyone is looking for a super solid Trans Am chassis, I'm selling my previously primary Schumacher Mi2EC (tons of spares) with a Swede Savage Cuda body. All you'll need is your preferred electronics and you're good to go. I'll even throw in a brand new Putnam 27T brushed stock motor for you, too.

PM me for details... I'll make you a helluva deal for a really dialed Trans Am car.

Does anyone have new pics of the Pegasus 70SS (Camaro)? I'd like to find someone or place that has them.
