I have now entered the 1/5 scale world with a 30 cc 2-cycle motor and would love to read more on these beasts. I have the 1/5 scale Barca buggy exceed (this was a good price point to get started and have the parts to change to all Al. gears).

My background is a new to the hobby and I have built a LCG Slash from a Rally running on 3s, I have a short course 1/8 nitro with 0.28, and have a tweaked Mini-8ight.
