I'll be running a Trackstar with an Xtreme Stock this weekend. I'm too cheap to buy anything else for this class and I'm bound and determined to make the combo work on the boiling Texas asphalt.

Some of the local fast guys only buy the best of the best and they consistently win (as in dominantly win). So it's easy to see how convincing it can be to some to have a thick wallet. I'm sure if you gave them a sub-level motor, battery or ESC they'd still kick booty. Until I can buy a "bag o' skill" I'll keep working on my chassis setup and driving. My problem is that I don't get enough trigger time (I haven't raced on-road in what seems like months).
