    Cashflow issues from the new home! But now thats all straightened away, time to upgrade the stable. Unfortunately my new location makes the commute to Falmouth and York much longer.

    Apparently 1/10th sct 4x4 and 1/10th buggy 4x4 will be popular this year!

    Kevin

    Most guys with 1/10th 4wd buggies are running 6.5-7.5 .Just to let you know.A little more power is good for 4wd but these motor sizes are over kill for a 2wd buggy

    Kevin go with a 6.5 or 7.5.. based on what you run already I'm guessing you'd be doing 6.5 anyway ha ha.. its going to be a great class!

    A.good 8.5 will get usable power to the track anything lower turn will just increase tire wear, and be less effcient...indoor high bite tracks.with longer straights a.7.5 or 6.5 is better suited IMO

    Go with what you feel comfortable with .No matter what you choice will work ,from a 6.5 to the 8.5.I was just stating what most drivers are using.Some are even down to 4.5-5.5 and are used on all track sizes.

    Kevin

    Knowing you, im thinking you should probably go with something like a 4.5 turn on 4S.

    Yep, I think that should be about right for you lol!
