Default 950

I am just curious why the new price of 950 will be less than old Veteq 02?Using less parts,or trying to bring it down to MRX3 price to be competitive?For me,950 picture is not much different from MRX3! Khai Do.

Why why why why why why why why... can't we have a 1/8th scale class here in Tulsa OK?!?!?!?!? Dangit! I want one of these cars so bad but I'm not paying mad loot on just a basher!

Which brings me to my other question. Why is 1/8th scale not so popular over here? Because there's no tracks? Or because there's no racers? Which needs to come first? DANGIT!

I dont know much about the racing scene in Tulsa but here in Texas we have a good amount of racers running 1/8th and a few that come from Ok. to race with us you can go to www.rcrcnt.com for more info on our race program. Our season is pretty much over for the year we have one more race the Region 9 Championships on Nov. 2 and 3

Cool

What I've heard is that ROAR will drop 2wd 235 class next year.
Has anyone have heard that one???

Anyway, Serpent domanated Worlds in 2wd 235 class.....not enough company to Suport 2wd 235 class.

I don't know if i'd say serpent dominated 2wd. If you mean they had by far the most entries - yeah they dominated. Accoding to everything I've read the car that dominated most of the race and should have won wasn't a serpent.

I suppose you are referring to Cyruls STS Maddog.

If you look at the car for a minute you'll find out that it is a carbon copy of the 99 Impact.
Parts interchangeability= 99%

Same goes for their Pro10.

yeah we know STS is based on serpents - but STS is not serpent.

If trinity sent 10 reflex drivers to the worlds and put 10 in the 200mm main I couldn't very well say kyosho dominated the worlds could I?

I know what you're tyring to say but I can bet you that if that indeed were to happen, you will still find some hardcore Kyosho supporters proclaiming that the Reflex is a rebranded Kyosho and that it is indeed Kyosho that dominated...

you might be right. Most hardcore kyosho fans try to dis-own the reflex though.

Does anybody know when the new serpent 235mm car will be available in the states? Salven had at the worlds so is it for sale anywhere yet?
