I agree with you. Let me just point out that the team Helotes Arena truck is very capable. I've been running the truck for about 3 months now with not 1 single issue or breakage. I've been taking allot of time in finding the correct set up to suit the Southern California tracks I run on. KZ, The Dirt, Hot Rod Hobbies. It's very challenging because the UMT class is extremely popular and fast down here on the West Coast. Sportsman and Pro Truggy classes are now being offered @ my home tracks. The separation of the class was executed to perfection @ this year's US GAS Championships@ KZ speedway. It gave sportsman level UMT drivers an actual chance to win against drivers with equal skill level. Running against Chad Bradley and Ryan Caveleri decreases odds maybe
The quality and performance of the team helotes truck is a continuation of our Xb8. I'm very happy with mine. It's difficult because set ups are so scarce however it only makes you that much better in setting up the car. The Xray manual has helped me tremendously. My truck is running really good right now. I recently placed 3rd place in the sportsman A main truggy class @ round 1 of a new series "The West Coast Shootout" in SoCal. My competition was a sea of CRT's and LSP's. After my main, many compliments from those that attended saying "What truck is that"????? Felt good. Just thought I would share.
