However, on a big track it was a trade off between passing people in the stretch or getting passed by a 2-speed car in the turns while your car is in between gears. I believe modellor can back me up on this one...as I think we've discussed it before


Its cool to see that some guys still know about the Good ol' days.
I hear you man! yes inbetween shifting hurts! but the closer gearing can make up the difference! The sad part is the 3 speed tranny needs lots of attention especially running at different track every week!
But if you run this monster at one large high bite track then every one will ask you want kind of engine you got!

I too thought they were made illegal way back when but I looked it up and 3-speed is legit according to ROAR.


5.2.5 Multiple speed transmissions are not allowed unless noted in the class rules.

1/8 on-road fuel (IFMAR class)

9.4.9.4 Transmission: Single, two or three-speed.

BTW, a 3-speed is also ok to run in the monster truck class though I haven't seen one.
