You will need to let us know what class you are running. It makes a huge difference as you can imagine. Kinda like regulations between Formula 1, and Nascar!!

What's that supposed to mean?? I don't even like Nascar. Only mentioned it because the guy is from the US.

Bring on F1, that's where its at.

Not to mention that Indy cars blow NASCAR out of the water, and hey! They can do tracks too! But, I'm not bashing Indianapolis. Especially since they put in the circuit track extension

And, if you've ever seen an F1 race at Le Mans with its 4-MILE backstretch, you know F1 has serious speed as well.

Being in Virginia, yes I know more abour Nascar than I ever want too... My Dad used to run a local stock car around lower New Hampshire ( from 1958 to 1962 )....... Now those days was racing..... Just about anything went... Very few rules.....

Trinity Monster Pro stocks are hard too beat. www.harrisrc.com.au has some good EA motors which are trinity motors that are tweaked and tuned a little more.

Thanks all,

Some more info. Only Tamiya Motors allowed. Will be running 4WD GT class (hopped up TA04).

Rules are strict here. Something to do with "levelling the racing-field"

How did some of ya get to the NASCAR thingie....I don't even line in the US....

Thanks anywayz
