How well do these handle being that it is based off a 1/8 buggy platform?

Is there a class at WCRC and/or Cal Raceway?

What's everyone's motor/battery combo? I have a spare Tekin 2050/4s. Is this overkill?
I've seen these cars run at WCRC and they're fun to watch but WCRC is a bit small for these things and anything more than just two or three of these may be too much for the track to handle. Same goes for Cal Raceway but if enough people show up for a race Charlie will try to accomodate.

Really the best venue for it that is local to you is OC Circuit (also run be Charlie) at Hobbytown Corona. Its a faily sizeable track that accomodates the 1/10th nitro so there's plenty of room to stretch for a 1/8th GT be it gas or electric.

If you already have the Tekin 2050/4s you're already half way there. And given that the GTPe is just above $200, it should be easy for you to get into. I think even the kit tires will be good enough to race to get you started. Also, unlike 1/10th, these cars are way more durable and you'd really have to hit something extremely hard to break anything if any at all.
