Default Count me in. I think????

This thread needs a bump. LoL


I just need some Serious help finding out what gear to get and what class it would fall into. This is what I narrowed it down too any help, advise or suggestions greatly appreciated.

Car: either F104 Pro or FX10 (hpi with exotech conversion and every hop up avaliable)

Esc and motor: I have no idea, but I do want to go brushless, and FAsst!! Always ran brushed.

Batteries: no clue, but want to go lipo, but dont know what fits or what goes with motor combo.

Servo: what fits

Tires and wheels: I understsnd tamiya and hpi hubs are different sizes, so do I stick with brand of car on wheels and both rubber or foam.

Bodies: what brand what fits with what, all I know is theres a narrow and wide 140/160 and you want a realistic paint job or solid color.e.m.

Classes: after reading this thread and trying to understand the concept of the race, this is what I gather.

Across the board car bodies must look realistic or painted a solid color. Either Tamiya or Hpi.

F1 open: anything goes (chasis, motor, esc, batts, etc., concept prototype), But you have to run rubber tires, No Foam. =F1 Open Mod, with rubber tires only.

Gp3: Any flat pan style chasis, any (motor, esc, battery) But must run Foam. =Gp3 Open Mod, pan/flat chasis, foam tires only.

Gp2: Any chasis, Except pan/flat chasis, Motor limited no boost 17.5/silver can, rubber or foam tires Allow chasis upgrades and hop ups. If enough show we split rubber and foam. = Gp2 stock class, any tire. If enough to split :Gp2 R stock, rubber tires only, Gp2 F stock foam tires only.

Gp1:Bone stock Rc Rtr, motor limit as stock Gp2, rubber tires only, No chasis upgrades, or hop up or after market parts. Maybe allow BALL BEARINGS, and any servo.

Like I said I need help. Thanks

I'm back! I like the new ad. Are you still going to do a builders cup? Got the teams together? Can't wait to see who wins this one if it happens. I wonder if I can get a T shirt that says "GO HIMOTO!"

65-69 a night? Good lawd I'm sleeping under the truck.

I was cheking in to see what the latest is. Right now I am sitting at home with a bunch of F1's around me and I cant even go out and play with this !!!#$ flu thing that is going around. Don't panic yet, just keep pumping the info to every forum out there. Besides, I want to see how far I need to move over when your new car is on the track.

well i am at a crossroads, i need to order trophies shirts and stuff real soon. obviously i dont want to spend 300+ dollars on this stuff and no one shows up. So please if you have any intention on coming down let me know. if not im just going to downgrade the event to a club race and add TC gas and electric.

BTW i can house one or two people at my house if need be, you would still have to get transportation ( my STI cant hold much!) but that would save someone over 100 bux!
