The 2012 ROAR 1/8 Off-Road Nationals are rapidly approaching and since I’ll be there to cover the event I figured I’d sign up and participate as well. Typically I wait to the last minute to prepare my race machines as I’m a self-admitted procrastinator in the prep department. But since this race is big, I thought I’d start getting my gear in order now. No sooner did I decided to prep early, I found myself with another decision. Do I run my TLR 8IGHT 2.0 EU that has over a season of runs on it, or do I go with my new TLR 8IGHT 2.0 kit that has just one race day on it. My EU is broken in and totally dialed; I’ve had a lot of compliments on how hooked up it looks. However with a big race shouldn’t I go with newer equipment? The new buggy doesn’t have all of the option parts like the EU has so I would have to spend more time installing new stuff rather than just run the older built up EU buggy. What to do! Not sure I’m going to get any work done on a buggy today; it will be a day of accessing my equipment.
