    Sure, I could bring it along. I plan on building another car, so maybe someone else can drive the HPI.

    I'm bringing the knight hauler. LOL.

    I had already thought of something stupid like 100 cells in the traailer stuff.

    I'd go for the fastest monster one. My secret though.

    This sounds cool but.....u gotta have a ton of money. I dont think we will see anyone under 20 there racing.

    Id like to see the knight hauler with 100 cells!!

    I saw the tc3 that almost pushed 100..and the other car that pushed 111. those cars were pretty freakin heavy from all the cells.

    I think it's a sure thing this record will be taken by an electric car. This is all assuming it could knock off the record now. It's probably possible to dream up something that would do it, but you'd need a lot of luck to get it to not go boom on a high speed run.

    I don't think so possum; Just because the record is held by an electric doesn't mean that there isn't a nitro out there (or can be built) faster than an electric. I think it'd be easier to make an incredibly fast nitro and still have it run again.

    So if I were to enter I could have a totally custom car? Or does the vehicle have to be based on a current car?

    Damn I might have to warm up the CAD program... LoL... We'll See....

    I bet li-po batteries will push the speed way up for electrics.

    The crashes are probably gonna be crazy.

    Electric?? no, Nitro?? no, ...with the weight of the batteries the electric would neeed MASSIVE gearing adjustments and a switchable transmission (hmm ideas) to move the weight to start, even if assisted. Then the Nitro, the RPMS would be a bit low i believe so the same trasmision concept comes into play. BUT, if one were to, i dunno, combine em, make a worl class top speed Hybrid, NItro to maove the weight and get up to speed, the switching to electric to kik the higher rpms needed, with maby the before mentioned trany mods. May take some money, but since i cant make to Cali, maybe someone else can try it

    I don't think that's plausible idea. Even though you'd have the electric kick in at medium-high speeds, you'd still have the engine on board, fuel, batteries, 2 servos, ESC, etc...

    well the fuel would run out, only use a limited amount of fuel, just enough to get up to a high speed, anyways just an idea

    I think u could make a high speed electric car that doesnt way a ton. U only need one motor, one servo, one reciever(all that is not much weight) Very light CF chassis..and of course li-pos, and lots of them.

    considering the track is an oval track and u can use as much as u need (or range allows) u may still want the steering, just to get as much as u can out of the space provided.

    Unless you make an ejection system for the engine....
