Default What would U reather have Running?

A Tsunami or a Lightning onroad car? If you have both? Would you use an 18 on ur lightning? I am a bit
confuse here because I have both cars, tsunami is alright, but I dont' have the track for it, and I have
the lightning which just needs the two speed tranny which tsunami have. What do you think? I am
far away from dirt track. What would you do if you are in my place? What would u use from tsunami
other then tranny on the lighting from the tsunami? Thank you

I have the Lightning and the Monsoon among others. The Lightning is fun and fast but it is only for on road. The Monsoon is fast and fun for off road but no fun on road. So I guess that it is up to you on where you would like to run your car most often. On road is a blast but there is just something about the jumping and the racing that I can't seem to get enough of so I prefer off road but I still race on road to. I know that the Monsoon isn't the Tsunami but it is the closest thing that I have.

I'm with Nick I like the on-road cars for drifting, but I love the off road jumping, bashing and all around dirt flinging.

switch the trans from one car to the other until you get the gears for lightning, they will bolt up 123 and are easy to swap.

um ehroof i also bolted the 18 and its like. Not a good idea. Is there a 10 size motor for me. LOL I need to get her adjested on gear shifting. But i have that lock thread so its hard and its shifting within 2 sec. But car is so......... I think its to fast. I wunder how far it goes with an 18 size motor. It seem its past the 60 maybe 70. Its to fast to be driving full speed.

Dirt all the way, no need for on road cars, but if i had your choice i would be in the dirt, sand, whatever i could find. Just my 2 cents
