Sean,
thanks for taking your time and bring us the tub. It is sad to hear that any hobby shop is closing. Is there any sauce left, if so, I will take a can. I ran out last race.

I have fgx and f104v2. I like fgx but I agree with all three points.

As a local hobby distributor I can attest that local shops are having a tough time, whether they are selling RC, trains, or whatever.

Sometimes the setup problem is the nut behind the wheel. And running two classes can actually help with that. More wheel time, and forcing yourself to adapt to the characteristics of both classes.

But yeah, if it takes you the whole break between rounds to get the car re-sorted for the next round, adding another class won't help.

You can be an idiot like me and run Mod tc and Wgt. Talk about two different driving styles!

I have always been told and can attest too that running ONE class will help you be a better driver. Busy club nights running multiple classes, let alone different chassis (pan/TC) seems to hectic and doesn't allow you to focus.. Just saying.

Normally I would agree, however if you take a second class that is to just pass the time and don't take overly seriously.. the long rounds that we seem to be experiencing due to good turnouts, don't seem so long and boring. the trick is to have fun with the second class.. I generally want to focus on my 1/12th scale but will run my scale spec just to pass the time.. however I really dont put a lot of effort into it.. set it up at the begining of the night and just run it.... that being said I am not exactly one of the faaaaast guys. but again im more focused on my 1/12th..

Default Xray Tub Parts

I have a bag full of $850 worth of Xray parts including 2 ECS drive shafts. I will let the whole bag go for $300 to the first guy that PM's me that's racing on Saturday. I will also throw in a Hudy car stand.

Default F1 setup

I was wondering what tires are the best for the carpet and grip at the hanger and what gear ratio do I want to be around?, any input would be great trying to get a f1 together to run there.
Thank you.
