I previously had a cyclone TC and only recently updated to a TCX. go hotbodies! goodluck on whatever you choose.

Thanks guys, I've never drove and onroad car before and I am so confused, but all this info helps a lot. Maybe I'll come watch some of the action and check out some your setups on your next race day, hope you guys don't tire of my questions.

nope, you take the radio tray off and slide it in from the side. Looks good, but it does come with its own issues

No problem, come by the next race and we'll tell you everything you need to know. I'm running off-road too but my RC roots are still on-road. It's good to be able to juggle both, it makes me a better driver

As for a car, I agree with AOD for the latest TC6. Any store can get parts for that car, and the cost is very reasonable. Photon is a really good car too though. I'm the odd ball running frankenstein tamiya cars.

No...the servo I bought for the TC went into the F1 so now I need another servo...and I still need batteries but Hobby Partz has been out whenever I had the money to buy em. Their next batch is due in early Feb. But even then I'm not sure I want to run 3 classes so if I run only 2 it would be pan car classes.

What do people use this track for? Is it set aside for drifting or can you run anything on it?

You can run anything...but mostly just the drifters use it.

Sounds like fun!

Are you guys just running the stock RTRs or are some people replacing the gear with other goodies?

Had a fun day today! Congrats to the winners in each class. Love the close competition I'll see you guys at the next race, and should have a 1/12th ready then.

That was an awesome raceday! too bad I had to leave for the third main. 1/12 had good battles and boost TC is insane, everyone has identical laptimes I actually cant wait for the next one. F1 looks like plain old fun, very quick with brushless now.

So who took the day in boosted?
