hey guys, i live around 20 mins from the track which is good,never raced an rc, got a durga at the moment and should have a decent motor and lipo in it at somepoint, wondering what kinda stuff would be suitable, like tyres and i dont really know much else... are lipo's really essential if im going to use a 6.5-8.5t brushless? i guess so but..

thanks:)

Hi,

LiPo yes, not essential but its the norm now so why bother with anything else. 6.5/8.5 all fine in 2 and 4wd :thumbsup:

Look forward to meeting you :thumbsup:

Tyres for our indoor will be Schumacher yellow Mini spikes or mini Pins.

No, it's based on ability. Pop down and race and see how you get on :woot:

If its a Durga (DB-01 and not a DB-01R) then you'll have no slipper clutch in it. If your going to get lipo's and a 6.5t motor you'll probably need one. If i were you i'd still pop down at some point, at least you'll have an idea of what you'll be racing against what the circuit is like.
