JLock have you been checking out the OBR website lately?? They are coming out with a 38cc & 40cc big block engines. That 38 sounds just about right for a FG 4 wd bet you could set a land speed record with that.

No, but thanks for the heads up. Got to do this one step at a time (trying to be patient). I have to remember, get car first, learn car second, drive car third, save for second car, buy second car, work on a few background things (probably before buy second car), then maybe get hop-up engine. Trying to stay focused........

I really didn't need to see this thread... i just posted on the Large Scale and oval tracks forum looking for info on 1/5th scale touring. I have been eying these for a year or so... Iowa is pretty limited but there is a nice track 2.5hrs. I'm looking at possibly going used but being patient and saving up.. thanks for really sparking my interest again!

Default Let's race 1/5 Touring

I bought one of these last year when I saw someone at my local track running it.
