another 20 trucks this Sunday and $250 went into the Lotto .... 2 racers numbers were pulled and $50 went to 2nd...and $200 went to 1st...

Ok this is how the lotto works. I'll match $$$ to each entry. The more entries the more the lotto grows.
So we start at $5 per entry for 1-5 entries...6-10 entries it goes to $10 per entry.... 11-15 entries goes for $15 per entry... 17-20 and beyond $20 per entry. The $$$ will be randomly drawn to 1 or possible 2,3 racers

Running on the old grey carpet (I assume ETS) we are gluing sidewalls.

I think a lot of this has to do with most not turning D/R down or setting endpoints, kinda need a gentle input not hack and slash drive style.

We ran them for the first time this past weekend. Oval and roadcourse. 8 trucks Saturday and 9 on Sunday. Too much fun.

A win in oval today and podiums yesterday in oval and road course.

She'll never look this good again!

The first and best mod I do on any TT-01 or TT02 is to use ball bearings. The white plastic kit supplied bushings are rubbish. The large tires on the Euro trucks create high loads and it's no surprise they were ruined.

you used the wrong screws for the gear cover. Make sure they are the correct ones. Also donít over tighten the cover as it will cause the spur to bind up

I’ve raced my euro a couple times and it’s the most fun I’ve had in a while. It’s so refreshing to not have to be working on it like my 1/12 scale. I do wish some of the racing with these trucks was a little more cleaner. It seems to devolve into a battle of attrition and who can make it through the bad driving

I refer to it as the WWE (WWF) of RC.

I'm sure they add a little speed. I can't justify the cost on this class though. It's for fun and I like not having to do much to the car. Oil the bushings, check some screws, send it!
