What do you race with

Post by Rambones » Mon Mar 21, 2005 2:15 pm

I was wondering if you guys also race buggies or LSP's or just Savage?

Right now im using my Savage to race but not sure if i want to buy a buggy and race buggy and Savage or to use savage as basher and get LSP

What is a good Buggy?

Once again, this year will only be the Savage. If I didn't spend so much on my other hobbies, I'd probably join those the LSP crowd. :D

Hot Bodies CS is not that good. There is such a high demand for the LSP right now they can't keep up.

I raced the Savage for almost two years before I had to change. I just could keep up with the jones on out of town races where a lot of the top drivers were running Truggies and Revo's.

Although I havent raced the Savage for a while it is ready to go.
I have been racing buggy, and will be consentrating on it this season.
With the split between MT and truggy....I will hang on to the Savage because its still competetive with LST,MGT,maxx, and prolly Raptor and Warhead too.

CRS... this just in
2 more locals take the HB plunge...one other riding the fence.
I start to wonder if there will be enough MTto support a MT class...will need minimum 3 entries to support adding a class to the schedule.
With more than 12 HB truggies bound to show up...will there be 3 or more MT to support running a MTclass???

If there isn't more than at least 5 MT's I am going in the truggy class with my savy. I spent about 3k trying to get my savy good enough to race truggys and I think I finaly did it. So bring it on LSP's and truggys :twisted:

Last year, my Savage and I won the club champs. The first prize was a Hobao Hyper 7 Pro UK buggy, so I feel obliged to race in the buggy class as well as the MT class. I have installed a RB S7 into the Hyper, so that flies like poo off a stick. I also have a HB Lightning that as was given earlier last year to review for a magazine.
I will continue to race the Savage this year because it did me proud last year and it is proper reliable. I don't really care too much for keeping up with all the latest kit, just as long as I'm happy with the kit I've got.
To prove (again) the reliability of the Savage, I attended a 12 hour endurance race yesterday to raise money for the Tsunami victims. There were 5 people in my team, so I got a good 2.5 to 3 hours driving. The only two things that broke were an aerial tube and a diff bearing.
