A true racer you are. I ran one of these babies in a 24hr endurance in France in '94. Got invited to enter with a team due to being so dominant in 1:8th 4x4 that previous year with a 4 year old BMT 891. Had never seen the car let alone drive it until the race actually started. I thought it would be a piece of cake, nothing to it but man I got a steep learning curve.

I'm just glad that popsracer didn't get discourage! My first race was with an 1/8th Veteq and it was more than a hand full!

Modellor, 24 hrs!? That is way cool! We run year end 3-hr enduro, I can't imagine running 24 hrs!

you have no idea what's behind the story. His comment of me wasn't about this thread, it's about another thread.

How much tyres/fuel did you go thru in the 24 hour race?

TO start we had a team of 3 drivers, each having to pay 330. That got us 2 Rex .21 Turbo engines, 20 sets of tires (10 front and 10 rear) and 5 gallons of fuel.

At the end of the race we got to keep everything. We set it all out and had only used 4 sets of fronts and 5 sets of rears. We also only used just over 2 gallons of fuel. (My dad tuned the engines and made them run 8mins on a tank yet they were still the fastest on the track). We didn't win surprisingly. I passed this one car a lot of times yet when we checked the laps we were about 200 laps behind them??????


Talk about cheating for the local team to win.

Anyway hope that answered your question.
