i have run off road but never on road. any help or advice would be great
thanks
The T4 is by far the most popular car at our track and you will more likely get help if you need. Nothing wrong with the Tc6.2, I've seen guys look just as good use it. I believe most guys run 64 pitch gears. For X-ray, spurs used are 92 and 96 tooth. Pinion for 17.5 I would say in the 50 range. You just have to watch the temperature of your motor and ESC. I know the fast guys were running pinions in that range for our track. Hopefully someone else can chime in.
Like Ken said, RGT kit is pretty good and has looked very fast. Cost is reasonable too. A few guys have ran that car at the last state race and I expect the same this weekend.

A race schedule will be determined after this weekend. We will be taking a poll for which day will work best for everyone but right now Sunday's look to be the best.

As for a car, yes, I sell RGT and run the car now. I have had a good deal of cars over the past few years and I can honestly say that the RGT is the way to go. The car is fast out of the box, it is tough, parts are always on hand at our track and any other races I go to and it is inexpensive. Personally I am running the best I have ever run with this car.

I will be at the track this weekend for you to take a look.

This is only rumor, but I heard that the writers to "I'm too sexy" by Right Said Fred are considering a re release of the song based on this flyer and the badass who created it.....
