Hehe, I used to think I would get no enjoyment out of onroad, oval, carpet or whatever. I will admit I love my nitro and off road racing the most, but this stuff is a blast too. I started out recently doing oval on a flat carpet track. It really is a great time. I think it'll even help my offroad driving b/c of the concentration you have to keep for 50 or 60 laps. And the actual car to car, bumping and all that seems like there's more in oval than offroad.
So now I want to turn right as well as left and picked up the 1/12 scaler. Mostly b/c I want to run every week, and oval is every other. So now I'll just swap weeks of what I race.
The way I look at it is I don't care what I'm racing as long as I'm racing. Without the competitive feeling I wouldn't even run my cars. Some people play softball, some party all the time, I just wrench on my cars and race. Great hobby!!!
