The plastic chassis caveat is only for "Classics" class, which has evolved mostly into 4wd entry-level (plastic chassis) models.
- But yes the silver-can does level the playing field in "Classics", and decreases broken parts I think as well?!?
- Tires are huge though, as it is a very smooth indoor surface.
- Perhaps on a loamy outdoor track those old knobby tires wouldn't be such a deficit?
- I never made it to VONats when it was outdoors.
Sport-Tuned motor for Classics (black or newer silver can)
True "silver-can" motors are for the Wheelie class!! Yeehaw!
4wd is the ticket for Classic class. The DF-01 chassis is ludicrously good, even if it's made of brittle ABS plastic. I love my Dirt Thrasher and it's at a point where it's super easy to drive/jump/corner. It's almost perfect. That simply means I have to bring something else this year
I'll finally be able to come without wife/kids this time, which means I can stay/practice later on Friday and Saturday. Sunday will be a rough drive home, though...
