Thanks!
Thanks for the question. I dont have a lot of expirence with the duratrax line of vehicles. It looks to me that the duratrax dt is a brushed, rtr kit. So, it would run in the stock class as advertised. Sorry for not having expirence with this kit. Bring it down, we will have a look, and run it!

Thanks,
The Compound

I cant drive but I have a heavy trigger finger, sometimes thats not a good thing! Looking foward to meeting you all and having some fun racing together.

Default Evader EXT, ST, and EXT2...... No DT

Dekar058,

We are running Evader ST, EXT and EXT2

Thanks for the reply, but we are not running any of the DT Evaders. They are all stadium trucks..... I.e. Looks a lot like a Losi xx or a RC10. The body does not cover the wheels and I didn't know if this would be an issue for you on your track. I am an experienced racer and I would like to run in the stock class. However I wanted to make sure that open wheel would be ok with you.

I look forward to your reply.

Default 10th scale statuim.

those trucks are known as 10th scale 2wheel stadium trucks. not sct's (short course trucks) and normaly would run in there own class, not in the sct classes (at most if not all tracks).

Ninja,

Your talking about a truck class. These trucks will not run with short course trucks. I posted the classes/rules previously. We didnt plan on running a truck class but, if people bring them we will hold a class.

Default Clarification

Just a bit of confirmation for an sct racer noob...in the stock sct 2wd class

I CAN run the esc and reedy 3300 brushless out of the RTR sc10 in my xxx-sct
I CAN change shock oil weight
But...
I CANT change springs or swap into threaded shocks instead of the POS unthreaded cartridge in the xxx-sct.

Confirm plz...thanks.

Default Truck Class

Dekar058

How many racers would you need to run a stadium truck class. I know that I can get at least 4 including myself and letting SouthernTier run one of my 5 Evaders.......

I am guessing that I am not the only one who would like to run 1/10 stadiums. However if I am, I will pick up an evader bx (buggy).

Or maybe an evader DT if that is considered a SCT!

By the way.... We had a big race on my track today.... Videos are on YouTube!

Southern Tier,

You CANT run the esc and reedy 3300 brushless out of the RTR sc10 in my xxx-sct.(no sc10 RS or its parts can be used in stock)

You CANT used threaded shocks instead of the POS unthreaded cartridge in the xxx-sct(stock shocks just as everyone else will be running).

You CAN change springs and change shock oil weight.

The classes/rules are posted on previous pages.

Anymore questions just ask.

Evader Ninja,

This is our account for the track, I was getting yelled at for using my other account.

I feel we need at least three for a class. If you guys start bringing stadium trucks other people will too.

Lets see the videos, post the link or advise me what I need to search for on you tube.

I used to race nirto stadium trucks when I lived in california. The original rc10gt lol! Get three or more of you guys with stadium trucks and bring them to race and see who has the most skills! I love stadium trucks, just don't have one at the present time.
