Default New to race scene ??'s

What trucks do you see in the monster truck classes at the tracks around you guys? I have been looking at revos and lst2. Any other trucks that are race worthy?

Thanks

Revo for sure. LSTs and GSTs and the such are too big to handle really well.

If you really want a fast truck, go for a truggy![>:]

You are 100% wrong. If you dont know something, dont give out false information to people.
LST2s had teh 3 fastest TQs in teh 2007 Nationals, so try educating yourself before you give someone incorrect information that may negatively influence their decision.
I race my LST2, and it handles incredibly well

For racing the LST2 and Revo are probably the 2 most competitive without work and the 2 most commonly run so you'll be able to get help easier.

Best thing to do is go and watch the local races, this is where you start and you can learn a lot. Some tracks will favor 1 truck over another. Plus if all the MT guys run 1 truck they will be able to give you tips and tricks...not true if you are the oddball out with another truck.

I personally run a Revo and do very well with it locally. Most of the group we run with is also Revos, but we have a few LST guys who do well too.

I know you want a solid Revo or LST type choice, but all I can give you is my opinion and thats buying a Revo, good racing ability with plenty of options. However the LST2 is not a bad choice.

There is not longer 2 MT classes per Roar and RC Pro rules. All Mt's run in 1 class often call Production Monster Truck. The rules for tank size are dicated from the size of the engine, minimum dimensions and maximum dimensions are also listed.

He is correct, the LST2 took the top 3 qualifying positions at the ROAR 2007 Fuel Truck. The 3 were broke before the end of the race and the top 3 finishers were Revo's.

Read the rules bud...

Read the results...

Long time ago, 2007 racing season was the beginning of the combined MT class.
