Here is a track I would love to run here in California, although it is about 6 hours from where I live, I would love to come here one day just to try it out. It reminds me of the track you guys have their in Oz...nice and large!

sometimes a too big track could be not very good as the car could be too far away from you.

Actually, the quickest Tourer Lap time is 18.7sec which I believe is actually quicker then teh 1/10IC

The quickest legal time in Tourer is 19.8sec

Note : this track is home to all the Australian champs in all classes, so competition is extremely high

My legal best is a 20.47

I do 21s with my eyes closed

I ran a low 21 with the first run of my MTX Pro last week, so it looks like I'll be edging closer to that lap record once I get the car handling 100%.

So, I just read all of this thread, and one thing I don't see is much talk about the V-1-S.

Are these two platforms comparable? It seems to me that the V1S is upgradable to V1R specs, from the pictures I can see. So is it?

The V1S is the only car legal for the Kyosho Cup races correct?

Thanks...

some parts are interchangable and some are not !! the V1S is for entry level racers.
