thats a decent price for a roller. i think class 11 would be pretty fun too though.

i wonder what would be cheaper in the long run- running a built buggy like class 5, or running in class 11.
class 11 is pretty much stock parts, but i'm sure they break all the time.

well that is why i was look at class 9 it the same wheel travel as 11 but it a buggy.. so no boddy panals when you watch teh races they don't dolphine as much as 11, and when they roll they just roll them back over.. and got no body to worry about.. fiberglasses isn't bad becuase it just ribbs off but class 11 has to run stock steel and it can cut tires when it rolls. i was watching a BITD race the class 9 when up about 10-15 feet and came down it top, bunch of people rolled it over and it took off.. plus a good class 9 car is faster then then some of the classes with more wheel travel you can push them harder.

desert racing classes cheat sheet.

the cool thing abotu these spec class 5 is there trying to start there own racing seress like 1450 or trophy lite.

i had a gf that had a family doin these races, they had a class 5 and a class 11, the 11 was fun as hell, and we would make runs up to pamona swap meet every month to get a gang of parts, not sure ive you ever been there but the VW section is huge, all kinds of stuff for dirty cheap, looots of fun
