Limited to 17.5 brushless motors
Any ESC, any battery (2S LiPo or 6-cell NiMH)

1/12th Scale
1/12th scale 2wd electric pan cars
Limited to 13.5 brushless motors
Any ESC, any battery (1S LiPo or 4-cell NiMH)

I ran a Cirtix Club Spec RCGT car this weekend to get a feel for the speed. Fun, Fun, FUN.

Drop your equipment in the car and go have fun.

Check your PM btw.

I chose RCGT Citrix Spec 17.5 class at my local track for the exact same reasons you stated above. I am an off-road guy with a decent enough budget to afford premium components, yet I got excited about the Spec class.
