itís also dead here in Northern California. Sad cause we use to get at least a C main at any given track here.
a few of us are building super class trucks to try and revive the class.

On road in general took a big hit in Chicagoland over winter and spring with 3 tracks closing in 4 months. Thereís one parking lot group that still runs them. A small group at my local HobbyTown is hoping to get it going over summer. But weíve lost so many weekends already to rain, Iím not sure if it will happen anymore.

We are trying to get ERTL Super Truck going locally. We have 3 running and several people say they want to build one. The Super Trucks handle really well - just as good as VTA in my opinion, and the tires are easier to deal with. I built this truck for a friend with the Yeah Racing conversion kit, and he is getting a Fat Fox painted with his company logo. It will do some racing, but it will also go to trade shows for display in his booth.
I believe you don't need any of this aluminum to be competitive in Super Truck, but he wanted a show truck for his business.

In N Cal at our parking lot club we still have a consistent 5 per race, at another club P1 further north its hit or miss, but usually 3-5 per race day.

I do not think you are going to get much to stay in short of grease.

I've used anywhere from 200k through 1,000,000 in my diffs. I think right now it's million up front and 200k out back.

1) After mounting the tires to the wheels, add a coating of glue to the FRONT TIRES ONLY in the area mentioned in this article:
Spec Truck Tire Glue Rule Change | ETRL

2) FILL the FRONT DIFF with this white grease:
Bad Horsie Diff Locking Grease - For all RC open-differential designs

3) Use this grease (shoot for 1/2 to 3/4 full) in the REAR diff:

We have several of these trucks running at Prolevel RC in St. Louis. These simple changes make the eurotrucks drive MUCH better on the black carpet.

Yup. I've really had no trouble with it leaking out. But that's some sticky stuff.
