Not sure of the prize money for each catagory. The drag races will be on a level offroad surface asd there are no tarmac surfaces in this area. I think there will be more than 100 participants.Will post more details once i get them.

@Mura: with the cars and experience you have im sure you can win all classes. Unfortunately there are no onroad races this time.

A couple of guys are running superchargers on the traxxas jato and TT s50. Do you think they will be quickest in the drag?

There is a 1/5 scale catagory but they need a minimum of 8 drivers, only 6 so far.

Why dont we have a team-bhp meet at the venue?

MCD's are killer 1/5 scalers, onroad. Like FG, Carlson, Technokit etc. MCD has an amazing Rally car.

Oh, i thought the Drag will be on tarmac....

Have to rethink the Drag if it is offroad type. I am also interested in the 1/8 Truggy/Buggy class.

Supercharging a piston ported 2 stroke is next to impossible, those RB innovation things are a complete waste of time and money.

What cars are you planning to run? Why dont you enter the 1:5 scale with the baja SS.

Very few people have FG's here, but it is the ultimate gasser, leagues ahead of the 5t.

Will post the entry form soon.

Will post the entry form soon.

In the Buggy Class Mugen MBX5R with OS Vspec

In the Truggy Class Losi 8ightT with Axe Rossi Cobra .25

Not too keen on the 1/5 scale.

I dont think anything will come close to the 8ight-T with that engine combo. Very few people running upgraded engines.

BTW how is the X-Ray XB808, someone here has one and is entering it in the buggy class.

GRP is also officially available in mumbai, need to know what tyres to buy for the trophy 3.5 for track use?

Will post the entry forms soon.

@R32GTR - Most people will be running stock Baja's. Based of Muras recomendation i have ordered an upgraded radio, shock covers, air filter covers, pull starter cover.

No performance mods yet.

Stock as in the 23cc fuelie motor? or is it the 26s? or more??

These baja's have no end to modifications..I came across one with over USD10,000 spent on it..

Where are you getting your upgrades from?

Mura,

I've already got a 5B SS Kit with an Airtronics M11 radio shipped to a friend in the US - will get my hands on it only in October 09..Do you recommend anything else?

The 5T comes with a 26cc fuelie engine stock.

Basic upgrades required:

2.4ghz radio
Shock covers
Pull starter cover
air filter cover
Bigger receiver battery (4200-5000mah 6v hump pack)

This is what i will be using, there is no end to what you can upgrade. unfortunately Im on a budget.
