Can someone please explain the difference of these two classes without too much detail?? Thanks in advance.
definitely the 7s class, well for starters it helps you learn how to read the terrain to keep the speed up, u learn how to hit jumps cause of the limited suspension and its cheaper to start racing.Thx. What about Class 6??
Which of the three would be the best class to start out in?
Thanks for the info. I think 7s sounds like a good way to start, I am hoping next year. I want to buy something set-up and ready to race. I am hoping the price-range is not more than $30-40k to get started.Stock Mini, 7300: Stock everything, no reinforcing. Only thing open is shocks and internal motor mods, but the motor isn't the limiting factor.
7s/sx/7100: Stock Frame, Stock suspension (reinforced), front travel limit to 12", Motor rules depending on series/class
7 open: Stock Frame, open suspension, width restriction
6/7200: OPEN. . .width and 6cyl motor are the only limits. Mini-Trophy Trucks.
Start in 7s. We started in 7300 and are happy with it, but I think we would have started in 7s/7100 if we had it to do over.
to help give you an idea of how much 7s trucks run, the two listed in the ads are $20k and 10k. both look competitive. my truck started off as a 7s and we've since spent a ton on it and now it's an open 7 configuration. we still like racing in sportsman class with it. we only race mexican SCORE races and don't want to enter the pro class to cloud up the points race in open 7 by racing only a couple of events a year and besides that, the chamlees' new truck is way too fast for us.....but only by a little bit so far.Thanks for the info.

They're pretty much the same thing. 7sx only exists in SCORE, which doesn't have a separate 7s class anymore. The only difference then was 7s was limited to 3.0L.yea thats a hole other can of worms , 7sx is more popular than 7s
