The RJ Speed cars are really nice basic drag chassis at a great price. Your Pro Mods look great and its good to hear you have your son involved.
My drag cars are sitting on the shelf for almost 10 years, no place to race them in my area...Yet.

Figured rj was a cheap way to get started to see if if would hold or interst, oh yeah it does! I can see some high $ cars in the future, even if there are no tracks around. A Llot of fun..........

with the rj speed cars. spend a little extra money and get the metal rear hubs. the plastic one rj gives you set screws will strip out. and hub will slip on axle. also good starter car kit is grand motor sport spec kit. same thing though change the rear hubs
a good setup motor and battery for a 2.0 sec car . is a 6.5 novak and a 2s lipoboth the rj speed and grand motor sport spec have a 11" wheel base . so depending on battery you use can either be a promod /funny car. or a supergas. thats either 3s or 2s lipoim not sure where cloudsville is but we have a track in central jersey
