I have an M18 and a Scalpel. I really dont feel like messing with the Scalpel. As far as the M18 goes, its the non pro version but I have it really tricked out with Motek and all so it doesnt behove me to buy another kit just to get wheels. If I could find the upgrade thing, I might consider running the M18 again. Either way I still have to buy another motor and speedo.

Truth is, Im an offroader and I have a proposal. Offroad is picking up really well and I would like to run another class, like truck maybe! But in order to pull that off we would have to seperate the buggys and the trucks. I really like the M18s, but the difference between the two cars I have is like night and day. Just when I get used to one car, now I have to drive the other and I fear itll hurt my driving.

And no, I dont want an 18R so dont nobody suggest it! :D

Most likely its fix up the M18 or get the RC18T since I allready have plenty of extra parts. Id rather get the truck. And race the second class at a reduced rate! :slimer:

i really dont see the need to. i mean they are almost the exact same thing with just different wheels and a body

Is there really a difference between buggy and truck when it comes to 1/18's? For Associated's it's the same car with a different body.

the only reason i would see the need is if people started coming out with vendetta buggies. but i mean kinda the whole point of running 2 different classes is a difference between the two

Would be kind of redundant wouldnt it? The reason I was thinking of another RC18 was because I allready have alot extra parts. I dont want a Vendetta. Its just not me. Maybe the Losi MiniT?

Gary, If you decide to run a different brand let me know. I will take the 18T parts off your hands :)

I wouldnt go for the mini T. They are simply wimply lol

I am thinking about one of the scapels. Those cars look awesome.

thats the only reason i see splitting up the offfroad classes is if we get more mini-t's coming out.

IMO i think we should run the 18r's more like a rally class. use the smaller jumps we have and make them use the wall

They don't handle the wall well at all nik......some small little jumps would be cool and easy to insert under the RCP.

I too am patiently waiting for that body Guff!

I can't believe how terrible I was driving yesterday in that car! I think my tires had a coat of dust on them, cause they were just sliding everywhere! Do you clean your tires off between heats guff? On-road stuff is still all so new to me.....I'm having to learn a new set of driving rules

ok, but i still think that small jumps would make the 18r class that much more challenging, interesting, and most of all, fun. i would even be more tempted to buy an 18r if we did that. i would build jumps for it too

No I don't do anything Courtney. The track had gotten pretty slick for the main.

i think its the fact that the 18r tires are pretty much slicks. i didnt get much traction at all with my slicks on my truck, but when donnie let me borrow his pin tires i had a whole lot more traction
