I didn't say I was going to do that, I just said that whats should happen. It would be better for the racing part of the hobby.

Just like Spec SCT should have spec tires, spec motor, and spec batteries, no timing adjustment, that would be better for the racing part of the hobby, but who really wants that?

I'm not going to run "stock" Short Course any more. I'm putting a mod in mine and running my 2wd in Unlimited from now on. Seems to be an overall cleaner class, scary statement I know, but true.

Or are they just running huge 3s batteries? Sc 17.5 (i thought), was a 2s max limit...
Everyone in the A SHOULD have been running a 17.5. Timing advance esc's van make a good 17.5 run like an 8.5 these days.

Does that facelift include a visit from me?

I run a Tekin RS and Redline 17.5. I run absolutely no timing. It's hard enough to control wheelspin without it. Pick a clean line and carry as much speed as possible through the corners. In SC it's more important to avoid the marshals and pileups. I find myself more focused on avoiding traffic than anything else.

How about we run your 2wd mod SCT truck with the mod stadium trucks, I think that would be better in just about every aspect.

We tried that at RCE.... terrible idea, nothing but an SC can share the track with with another SC truck, especially on a tight track.

I think we should just make 2wd Mod SC an available class anyway tho, as the SC guys improve skillz, it's an area they can step in up without having to hve a whole new vehicle, but it will take some adjusting as SC's get loose, the 2wd's that is once it gets the grunt of a
13.5+.

Also there are quite a few guys with 2SC's also, I'm sure some would choose 2wd Mod SC. Mabye not immediately, but it will grow. Many tracks out there run that as their premier class because of the boom of SC.

Just an idea. Open up the class and let people choose.

I agree that SCT and Stadium Truck need to be separated which is why I'm planning on Unlimited SCT. My idea of a mod motor is gearing up the 17.5
