    The only Sprint Cars that I can find available are the WCM and the Pro1. Is that really all thats left in production? I have seen some with a driveshaft and rear axle. I don't like the idea of a belt and pulley system. I understand it is most likely far more efficient, but I can only assume that rocks and pebbles from a non-perfect track condition will wreak havoc.

    Any Sprint car advice will be much appreciated. :)

    Timmahh, You found a couple? I only found one and it was an older car. I was hoping to get a few interested, so it makes sense to get something current so we don't have problems with parts or wheels and tires.

    Thanks for the quick info!

    beerman, your car is sweet! What wheels do they use? Is it a common pattern and size or limited to manufacturers options? I also see foam tires mostly, what about racing dirt oval? I am on my way to the site you posted.

    Thanks for the info!

    Go to QSAC Then click on "Links", and look for Bishop Racing Products. They supply all the wheels & tires for 1/4 scale.

    Most use Guards around the Belt and pinion Gears to keep Dirt from getting in there......Belts are the only way to go really...Less friction

    I have a Bullseye sprint coming in the mail.. Sweet car! Can't wait.:celebrate:

    I looked at as many as I could find and Bullseye got the nod due to realism, materials used, and just look at the machine work!.. very nice! And I have to say that the customer support has been fantastic.

    http://bullseye.9f.com/whats_new.html

    I was looking hard at the WCM, Pro1 and the Bullseye.. All of them are sweet. And all of them have won races.. And all of them are welded tube frames that look like the real thing.... Honestly the cutout flat aluminum plate of the Predator turned me off.. Reminded me of the chassis of a hpi savage or something. :yuk: And the reason I'm getting a 1/4 scale sprint car is because I find it to be the most realistic looking class of R/C out there. If it's not built like a sprint car, it's not a sprint car... IMO..

    Don't hate me... I just like to.. er.. keep it real. (forgive me for saying that)

    I didn't think I would be (sorry)and so far, like I said, I've been kept up to date and well informed Bullseye... I have NEVER EVER felt like a company gave two $#!*$ about my satisfaction before... Honestly, I'm pretty shocked and Bullseye has set a new standard in communication and customer care. Considering the fact that a quarter scale car isn't cheap, this really means more to me that it ever has.:w00t:

    Predator

    Hi i have a 2007 and let me tell you it is so easy to work on and replace a chassis side if required. Top car and goes hard due to light weight.
