I still haven't gone to the Spectrum system, and as someone else said, I didn't see the need. So many local racers have gone that way that I don't have much of an issue of waiting for a practice clip, etc... I just never have freqeuncy conflicts for my heats, etc. anymore, so what the heck...

HOWEVER -- Today, during my third heat race of 19t buggy, a novice racer turned on his radio in the pits, and the result was one front corner of my buggy was ripped off when it went into a pipe! Of course, there was the usual "oops sorry" comment, but that didn't change my broken buggy or the DNF in a qualifier I badly needed to get a good run in...

I may not Need a Spectrum, but it would have saved a bag of parts and my heat race...
