Default drag race truggies???

are the truggies any good for normal parking lot drag racing?

how would they stand up against revo with rb 23 or sirio 23 engine in a revo drag racing?

can all the truggies like thunder st-1 or jammin convert to put 2 speed in them to get more top end for drag racing?

and which truggies are good drag race ones?

thanks

the hotbodies lightning stadium can fit the 2 speed from the onroad car. drop a sick .28-.32 in it and own the race.

The kyosho truggy is lighter than most of them so i think it might be nice to drag with. Put an rb .29 in it or somthin and your off to own the races

actually a high winding .21 would work better for a drag race a modded novarossi would be quite up to par because a bigger engine will only give you more torque which may lead to tire spin unloading of diffs or hard launches but low top speed another way would be to get say a .28 and gear up a tooth

dude, truggies aren't for drag racing, if you want a drag racer get the megatech drag racer, truggies are made for a track, and they will beat any revo, any day.

put fairly heavy diff oil in rear,center, front lol higher(than normal since you're goin straight) and run a high powered .21 with torque pipe much like jp-1 or maybe jp-2(more of a mid-top exhaust) and you'll be good to go...but a revo with rb power and stretched gears due to it having 2 spds might win!!!

Iv got a thunder tiger st-1 with the 2 speed in it, proline road rage tyres on half offset wheels powered by a nosram rs.28 monster evo 8 port and its an absolute missile. i need to put a decent top end pipe set on it to rev second right out but even with the standard ttr pipe i can beat just about anything. the 2 speed is like a lock diff too so you can take the front drive shaft out and make it a drifter if you want, im pretty sure it goes a little harder in rear wheel drive aswell

this may be true in most cases, but not all. if you get an engine like a novarossi 528, picco 28, mugen 28, jammin jpx 28, STS 30, that can turn as high if not higher than a good high end 21, so you have the same (if not more) rpm's, but have aLOT more power. and add to that a high speed or top end pipe and you're in business.

Who says a truggy cant drag race????? i drag race my inferno st all the time..........i dropped in a novarossi 528 motor and i was set............a 21 is too small for the tourque needed to really push a truggy with some srouse speed (plus the high gearing ull run needs more tourqe) i choose the inferno st becuase it is the lightest truggy on the market PLUS the 2 speed from the inferno gt drops right in.........check out the pics of mine






PS do u like my 40 seires foam wheels???? ull never see those again in ur life!!!!
