Well you're lucky if your local track has a Stadium Truck class....nothing in my area does. It's buggies and SCTs....if they had that class I would have gotten my firestorm flux.

Onyx 245 or Great Planes Triton EQ?

I can get an Onyx 245 for $95 or a Triton EQ AC/DC Charger (not the Triton2) for $90.

Onyx has a 5 yr warranty....Triton EQ has a 1 yr warranty

Which would you choose?
