Always wondered why sc is more popular , personally I prefer the stadium trucks always have . Keep toying with the idea of a T5m but with next to nowhere to race it will mainly be used for bashing

Hi Roscopeco,

Yeah real shame as I think stadium trucks look better, no one really seems interested in them now. I have an Atomic Carbon CR2T one of only 2 ever made. Which at the moment is just a shelf queen but really needs to be used and abused.

I agree , i much prefer the look of them to the short course trucks . I've managed to get my hands on a T4 factory team that's been sat for a few years at a good price can't wait to give it a once over and put a fresh shell on it

Makes better sense to me than putting a fair quid into a new T5m just for bashing , only real chance I'll get of putting it on a track will be on practice evenings at robinhood but it's better than nothing I guess

we get a good full heat of stadium trucks at kidderminster. normally a full heat of 10 and sometimes more. also get a turnout of trucks at dudley winter series. unfortunately both west midlands based so prob abit far to travel.
I absolute love running my T5m. awesome bit of kit. id highly recommend one.

Stadium trucks are awesome fun to race, unfortunatly not many places accommodate them.
possibly due to the added bulk of them being too much for the typical in-door sports hall carpet club.

I wonder how many people in the North West of England have one that they would be prepared to travel a reasonable distance to race

I'd love to get a Xray XT2, it looks very quick indeed. But again like everyone else there is no where near me that races them. They seem popular in the US. I've never understood the attraction of sc either, they look like boats around the track that roll over very easilly if taking a corner too quickly.

As I can see from your signature, you are familiar with Xray kits and have no issues with the brand's sales policy.
On the one hand, I am still angry about some design flaws that either have been known for sure (steering ballcups, issue since the first XB2), or are quite obvious (rear body mounts/front body mount/sway bar mounting plate, both of which break quite easily if you are not a pro driver). On the other hand, I still think the XT2 is the ST to beat. ST in general is so much fun to drive, and the XT2 in particular. I bet you won't regret buying one, even if you'll be the only one with an ST on your track for the time being. Someone always has to be the first one, right?

I live just about in the North of England (Chesterfield) and love racing ST's but without going to Kiddy over 100 miles away there's nowhere to race them (part of the reason I've not raced for several months), it's so frustrating

I've been racing at Leverton in Lincolnshire, Stadium Truck mixes happily in with the short course hooligans.

Looking at having a trip over the midlands for the winter series.

I've been looking at that today but seems too far really and a pain to get to by the looks of it, may do the outdoor winter series at A1 Grantham instead
