R/C: it's a sickness that I hope never leaves me....

I agree, I have been in the RC scene now for more than 12 years and I love it. It is my hobby and my passion. I also love my Truggy class and MT is a very close second. I also love me B4 and B44 and T4 and love racing at Fast Cats. I feel that Fast Cats is a excellent way to keep sharp in the off season and it is also very competitive and a lot of fun... I am looking forward to many more seasons with my Team and the whole RC community.

I have always been an off road guy. I have flown planes and helis too. Lately though I am starting to like the on road again. I am liking the clean playtime.I take out any of my on road beasts and just blow off the dust and call it done....lately, especially with the 5th scale, I have a huge cleaning job when I am done.... considering I clean cars for a living, I am getting a little tired of cleaning sometimes (if I could only fit the 5th scale in the dishwasher hmm?)

that said... indoor off road starts in a month woohoo. glad the J82 didn't sell now

My vote is for offroad. I take my Revo or an RC10GT anywhere I go with the family,beach, park, shopping etc.....Like the freedom of play anywere any terrain. Even went so far as to put lights in the Revo(getting dark sooner).That being said, I just finished an all aluminum rc10 with street tires for out front of the house or parking lots, tired of wearihg out the nobbies. If I were to advise a new-B on what to buy for their first it would have to be an MT(and maybe an air compressor for cleaning..).

Fix whats broke and drive it like you stole it:GRIN:

i like the versatility of off road as opposed to the limitations of on road.

I've always liked off road better then on road due to the skill level I'd rather just let her rip on dirt rather then going onto a track.

Both Onroad and Offroad

I like both classes. Both have it's up's and downs but, both are fun. Me personally prefer offroad just because, you can pretty much go on any terrain and is versatile. I am going to be doing some onroad racing next season to sharpen my set-up and driving skills. Tekno.

Having raced a lot of competition onroad in Europe, I can tell you that to succeed in it you have to be very robotic in your approach on and off track. There is very little tolerances involved in the racing itself, you have the right line and that's it. Step outside the perfect line Once or twice and you run the risk of throwing the whole race.
Additionally, setting up the cars is, well, a highly involved process and dare I say, a bit geeky. Nobody smiles, they are all deeply involved with their setup stations, constantly checking camber/Castor/Ackerman/brakes/bias to the Nth degree etc etc.

With offroad there's far more latitude in driving style. Sure, you have the "right" line etc but the tolerances are wider. Different people have different lines, many of which can be equally as effective given the nature of an uneven, loose track surface.
Setup of the vehicles is somewhat more straightforward.

Mostly though, offroaders smile more than onroaders at their respective events.
