Top speed challenge is on for Sunday...bringing a radar gun. If anyone knows Pat Crane, tell him to bring his 1/8-lipo-frankenstein-buggy.

Default Want to race but gotta buy a gearbox first!!

What kind of tires do you guys race with? I was thinking about buying a set of Proline's Dirt Paw 2.2 tires for my 1/10 scale OFNA Pirate 10. Just got a new engine and this thing Rips!! Hope i can come out to the track somtime and have a race some time!! Gotta come up with the $25 dollars for a membership though. Some of you guys might remember me,, im the guy who Has the Red "Colt Buggy" with the 1970 plymouth Cuda body that i brought out to the track for some help with. Anywho, yeah im looking for a set of tires and want to know what to get. Would i be able to race being that i have a .15? I've noticed most everyone has .18, and .21's. is their a 1/10 scale buggy class? Hope i can come race with you guys, i know the outdoor season is almost over. I've been practicing alot with the handling of this buggy, and i'm pretty sure i can keep up, with acouple practice laps of coarse!! Hope to see ya guys laterhttp://image.rcuniverse.com/forum/thumbnails/335718/Uz68051.jpg

drifthead , the tires that work best for gas truck would be somthing more like bowties in an m2 compound or losi reptiles in red compound . posibly m3 holeshots when the track has some moisture in it . as far as the engine size we mostly stick to .12's for the 1/10th class but if you show up with a 15 or 18 , no biggie ! i'm sure chuck or doug wouldn't have a problem letting you run with us . as far as the membership issue , you don't have to be a member to race with us . the only thing is you will pay 12 bucks insted of the 10 bucks the track members pay . hope to see ya soon !!

Dan We're going to be trying some triple mains outside and see how it works. If it works good, we'll be trying it this winter. I think it will improve racing in that we will be doing more racing instead of qualifying.

The 13.5 brushless motor is probably comparable to the motors that you use to run your lathe!
