I also added that at your track it's only off-road, also winner gets to be turn marshal in event of multiple charging, you don't like something you have to help in fixing it or shut up, yeah. Just wanted to make sure I'm not gonna be chugging at 20 while otheres are doing like 50

i was thinking that since this club is starting out small, we shouldn't get too specific w/ the classes. i was thinking maybe a 2wd and a 4wd class? not excluding brushless into other classes.

its all about how you take the turns and jumps... a guy w/ a mamba and lipos could easily be schooled by a guy w/ a stock motor.
at least on my track.
btw... everyone cool w/ the track set up? any suggestions?

i have an orion baja motor in my baja, with a 14 tooth pinion, about as fast the stock motor but loads more acceleration and torque, set up for my track, but i could get a 17 tooth pinion, (stock set up, i think)

well just from experience, 2wd cars are harder to control than 4wd cars. i think we should have 2 separate classes. 2wd and 4wd.
but it depends how many people show up.

Dad will be driving my baja that I got and felt it was a pain to work on, and he had a Futaba FX-10 in the late 80's early 90's and my mom might actually join also driving baja, and she had an original Midnight Pumpkin, they both were totally tricked out. Since I was 5 I've been driving for about six months I stopped, true hobby grade was a year ago and 2 yrs. if xmods count. Started with those newbrights, this weekend I'm gonna order a proline x-citer and when it comes I'm gonna splatter flouresent orange over faspearl black.Might go back to Cap. hobbies to see if they have anything.

18b possibly converted to T, trying to see if a Mini-LST body would fit, the size seems right
