You are right down the road from Critters. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you have any questions about it.

4WD buggy and 2WD mod buggy are our biggest classes. Pro-line primes are the tires of choice for most. Med-high grip clay. Racing every Friday.


TC5man, I wouldn't call carpet a East coast thing. The bowl is the only indoor carpet off road that I know of and of course T&L coming soon which is on and off road. Its more of a PA thing. Everywhere else within 2 hours of T&L is dirt or clay.

It just so happens that I'm off on Fridays... I may see you soon. I'll PM if we plan to head over.

In PA now yes that's the only carpet indoor track the Railyard track was clay which closed this year . Your right in NJ there has been Clay indoor for years intill SJR closed which im still mad about. Trains i do go to for outdoor at times.

I actually picked that up for my 4 going on 5 year old daughter. I kept telling her I was going to order a transmitter for my LXT so she could bash it but in the end ordered the RTR 4.2 so she didn't kill the vintage...
I brought her with me to Trains n lanes to check the place out and she had a blast with the slot cars. I'm sure I'll bring it with but its a stocker RTR and that's how it will stay.
I'm not against picking up a T5M if that's where its at...

There are carpet tracks with jumps (its not offroad) sprinkled throughout the country. I've heard there are some up in the Pacific Northwest, and I know of a couple other states that have them too. The vast majority of tracks that have jumps are made of dirt or clay.

Carpet, and some clay tracks (like SRS) have enough grip that a car with the motor further forward is going to perform better. If you (TC5) feel the B5M in its regular configuration is great on carpet just the way it is then either you are not pushing the car enough to need to go to an LCG transmission, and/or there is nobody that you have raced against that has a car with an LCG setup to show you how much faster they are.

Xray and Yokomo are global companies. They make Carpet versions of their cars for their home markets, and dirt cars for the U.S. AE & TLR are U.S. based and their focus is right here in the U.S., where almost all of the tracks are dirt. There are companies that make parts to make the B5M into a carpet/astro car, and AE has stated they are fine with that. Chevy and Ford don't make pickup trucks in Europe, and AE and TLR make cars for the dirt.

I am so sick of this pandering to the 1% b.s. I'm sure AE and TLR are working tirelessly on a car for transgender, bi-racial, paraplegics to use on carpet.

There is a carpet track with jumps that is getting ready to open up about a little over an hour away from me. I'll check it out, but I'm not going to change my whole car around to optimize it for carpet. If carpet were my only option, that might be a different story. As long as there is a track made out of dirt, thats where I'll be.

Also, please take the PA/NJ track talk to the appropriate area of the forum. This is the B5M thread.

Wow take some meds lol . Sorry to tell you but most guys i know and raced with don't run a LCG tranny, it's not needed for carpet especially if it's not high grip .

You don't need to change a while butch of things or have a carpet Ed of any buggy to get the B5M to work on carpet like inless it's high grip like i said .

Wow if I was a mod here id slam the ban hammer on you so fast it wouldn't be funny. Bigotry,hatred and racism have no place here(or anywhere) and frankly it sounds like you need your ass kicked. Carpet is fun easy to do and takes a ton less work than dirt and can be setup and torn down temporarily in a gym or other public space in a hour or so. Carpet is here to stay and will continue to grow if you don't like it go find another hobby where they encourage hatred and bad attitudes I hear the westboro people are accepting

No, this stops here. Les Vegetables has managed to draw negative attention to himself in only 8 posts (or is it more??) and we don't need the rest of you being drawn down to his level. Let the mods handle it and lets move on to the freakin' B5M discussion.
