I talked to Jim yesterday. He is interested in running short course trucks again. We can run them in our standard truck class or add a new class if enough people show up.

I know there is some intrest in running 1/12 this year and with that in mind I went a little crazy during the off season and got my hands on a few cars and I want our drivers to have first shot at buying them.

The first car I have is a older CEFX complete car just needs painted.
The second car is an IRS Rugrat oval conversion with painted body, servo, tires and wheels on the car.
The third car is an older Hyperdrive.
The forth car is an CRC Razor ll.

The IRS, Hyperdrive and CRC are all rollers please eaither PM me or get ahold of Mr. Fulton or Mike Moore to get my cell number and keep an eye on my list as it might grow or shrink.

Yes Billbob I am but not untill later on in the season after I sold my XXXT SCT and TEN SCTE I told Mike and Paul the only reason for me to buy another short course is if TLR came out with one based off the 22 well guess what it's here and here is what I'm voting on with them 17.5 no timing or boost.

As far as running them with the monster truck class, we would want to stay 2wd. As far as a new short course class, the rules are up to you guys that run that class.
