    After going to a local hobby shop a while back I found out that these cars are pretty popular to race around here so I decided to pick one up.

    They are raced on a carpet oval track and what makes the legends class different from other types of racing is you have to hold them to a certain spec. You have to have a certain motor, gearing, battery, ect.

    The opening race is not till October so I still have some time to tinker with it but it should be fun to try out I think.

    Anyone else into legends on here?

    Ya that platform has been around for years , many years ago Bolink used to offer a Digger, same thing as what you have there had a bug or a 40 type ford shell for them, I think I still have one in one of my many RC totes.... RJ Speed worked for Bolink back many years ago and has ressurected the chassis for racing.... should be alot of fun as long as everyone follows the spec......

    I had a feeling you would chime in jam, seems you have been around the block once or twice with RC's lol.

    They are so simple and cheap, if the racing don't pan out I may just throw some small rubber tires on it and just zip around on the concrete. Parts seem to be plentiful too.
