So me and a few others decided to get into racing and we are building a dirt track this spring. Some with experience many years ago and some of us never raced these cars but anyway I just ordered the mojave 6s and was looking for upgrade options I want the must have upgrades and then I want to hear some of the not so needed but still good ideas

Depending on how big you guys make the track , 6s might not be necessary and actually might be overkill . We built a quick layout in my backyard to race 3 Mojaves , ran only 4s and dropped the pinions down to 13t . Running them hard non stop will create heat . Remember about racing " slower is faster " , we race 2wd indoor carpet SCT , we are so close , one crash , you're done !!

The plan is to build a good size course but we don't want to go too big either and we are ganna make it with a bunch of curves, everyone is getting different cars and we didn't want it to be based purely of speed I got a picture we stole offline not saying it's ganna to be exactly like this course but maybe similar or steal some ideas from it anyway
