There are a lot of tracks at least in Indiana that run the Bolink Legends on oval. Generally speaking the car needs to remain box stock. Some tracks have gotten away from running box stock, but that is what the car was meant to be. The motor would be the Trinity Street Spec motor with 4-cell Trinity Spec stick pack batteries. Tires are usually Spec foam or the Original Bolink Tires. The car should use the stock bushings, axle, and spur gear. By keeping the car as box stock as possible it makes the racing closer.

You should check in your local area to see what rules they are running.

they run legends at K&N in CT. 1600 4 cell spec packs, 21T spec motor, any gear any tire, any electronics, most run with a nascar style body instead of the legends bodies, not a rule just personal preferance.

The RC Barn (thercbarn.com) runs them. We run 2000 6 cell stick pack, stock motors, spec tires, and the legend bodies. More rules can be found on the website.

We have just started the class using any 4 cell under 2000 mah and we are having a hard time finding a suitable 4 cell spec pack to even the playing field. May switch to 6 cell??? Not too concerned about tires, must have one of the legends bodies on them and must use a 540 stinger or tamiya black motor. Which brings me to another question...............are these two motors the same? I thought the black can tamiya had less turns? 19 maybe? Specifically what motors do other tracks use?

Go back up and re-read post #3 from IndyRC_Racer. Box stock is the only way to go when racing the Legends cars. That is what they were meant to be, Spec Racers, and part of the reason for the existence of the Trinity spec stuff!

In East Tennesse we race our "Legends" in a 6.0 break-out class. This keeps the cost down and the fun up! I use an old motor, a stick pack, last years tires, etc. We have fun, It's great for the new racer and racers running a second class. Don

Run what ya brung and hope ya didn't bring too much (break-out).

This sounds pretty cool! I like the idea. It's kinda like bracket drag racing. I assume the 6.0 is a six second lap correct? And what happens if you do "break out" ? Disqualified?

Right, 6.0 is 6 seconds and if you go below 6 seconds your lap doesn't count. It makes for fun racing, anybody can win, even the new guy with the slow car.

Rush & Son RC in Henderson,TN Box Stock, spec motor 17/81 gear, spec tires, 6 cell 1600mah stick batt max, entry level electronics, and Mag Jr or equivalent Radio max allowed. Fun for all and $250 to $300 to get started. Tracks get a package deal set up for legends class as cheap as possible and have a packed class every race day. It's a fun class to run and not be so worried about every little detail, just charge them and race...........
