    Is there a STOCK race where everyone is racing the same specs?

            Yes, our Spec Slash class is very popular as the trucks are ran as SPEC. These are ready to run trucks when you buy them; you just add a battery and charger. We all run the same equipment to race these trucks. The only changes allowed in the Spec class are to change the stock radio to your personal radio, and you can add Traxxas Aluminum shock caps to the shocks to prevent failure. All other items on the truck must retain stock equipment.
