I have attempted to put together a list of harder to find items that we use in Giant Scale Racing. The list is NOT complete, but is a good starting point. Being on this list is NOT a USRA endorsement, but a vendor who we believe have items available. If you have something or know of someone who should be on the list, email me the information for consideration of being added. I will be updating this list as information becomes available to me.

A big thanks to all who helped me prepare this list!!!!!!!

NOTE: It is the responsibility of the racer to make sure the item you are purchasing is USRA legal !

ENGINES:
A variety of engines are currently used in the different classes.
For F1 most folks use the GT80 highly modified while some also use one of the single cylinder types from different manufactures.
F1GT: Only motor to use is the Zenoah GT-80.
Unlimited: There are several options currently being used; but you can certainly be creative. Regardless of motor used, each one has to be highly modified for maximum power. Current Class of the unlimited is the Desert Aircraft line of engines with the BCC line gaining strength.
Examples:

DA150 / DA 170; http://www.desertaircraft.com/
