I would like to see also a better and more clear warranty on all kind of RC products especially engines.

To many times I have seen shops not taking warranty issues even if the manufacturer has declared to take his responsibillity when something is wrong and indeed as mentioned most of them are internet shops.
But also to many manufacturers are hiding theirself when they know a product (batch) is not good, that has to stop.

Couldn't agree more. It pisses me off when in the past I've purchased a kit or motor that just seems to have a particular issue and then the manufacturer comes out with an "updated" carburetor or "updated" gears. We all know "updated" means they didn't get it right the first time and to bad for all those that got the bad version. Manufacturers need to be held more accountable for these type issues.

More on road tracks and on road racers, which could be helped with either lower priced engines/kits that are still competitive or another viable RTR besides the TM G4. I know, pie in the sky, but still...

Oh, and another body besides the Stratus! (Yes, I know there's the Civic and Altis, but they aren't always easy to find in your LHS and still aren't as all around balanced as the Stratus)

I would like the regionals to mean something. The regionals should qualify drivers for the nationals. As it is, regionals are just another club race.

I would like to see an onroad club/track within 40 miles of me, also competetive cars/engines at a reasonable cost like the specials amain hobbies has(gpx4 rtr for 159!). Also as mentioned some accountability for known issues and known bad products and false advertising. Also more people getting involved on a local level tooo make wish #1 happen. Happy new year to all!
OH! Biggest wish lately-affordable tires that hold up for 1/8 gtp cars! All these newer cars that go much faster than their offroad counterparts, but tires are made of same rubber and just don't hold up to onroad wear and use and usually explode/fail way to fast for what they cost.

It may be our track but we are having great wear out of both the OFNA and Ipanema tires. I am getting 4 to 6 race weekends out of a set. Our track surface is not too abrasive but when I was running 1/8 open class (foam) I was going through a set per weekend.

I suggest that you try these tires. I had no luck with the Kyosho tires. They would not last a full day.

jp eagle tl3t= $580-600 full ceramic $700.000

murnan modified 353 and +12= $500.00

max xxl3= 500.00

353 tuned= $460.00

I have to admit the price for these motors are crazy but these are the fastest .12 engines on the market .

just buy a picco and out drive them because that is your ownly chance on a big track (HorsePower wins races you better have some because i will)

I don't care if they are fast unless you are capable of making the a-main in the first place this motor won't help you. Those prices are ridiculous and with no warranty they are hardly a "great value". Scenario..........you get a radio hit on the back straight, engine goes wide open......POP!!!!!!!!! $600.00 gone you get no money back and it's not worth rebuilding. Did I mention the engine was brand new fresh off break-in. Not mad at you at all but it's people like you that keep the prices high like that. You will pay anything to win and they know it. Just my opinion.
