Not sure how SJCCR did last year, but the 2 previous years, we were the 2nd team done (and only beaten out for the top spot by 5ish minutes) - and 2nd on the grid

its all about planning and KNOWING these cars...and trust me, I know Tamiya
All that's left is getting the "driving for 24 hours" part right... I figured it's appropriate to note that small detail...

Actually, small correction to this to make it more accurate: You have 2 hours to complete the car before the 24 hour run begins. If it takes you 2.5 hours to complete the car, then you lose 30 minutes of laps.

And on another note...

Could you (not you Mike, I really meant Greg) limit the number of members per team this year? I think last year there was a team or two with 7-8 guys... seems a bit unfair during an endurance race.

I pray for the day the 24hour enduro race will be run with similar cheap spec 17.5t brushless systems... Turnout will triple...

dude this formula works fine why dont you put you money where you mouth is and get a team together and come out and see how well it works

brushless will come eventually but we are also trying to keep this race affortable which is what draws the most people


i dont normally call people out but i have seen you troll many threads latley
