Try:
SJCCR (South Jersey Cost Control Racing) at Wagner Park in Williamstown, NJ
Jackson RC in Jackson, NJ
Trains And Lanes RC in Bethlehem, PA (I believe)
They all have threads in the Racing Forum.

One could always make some friends in the area, get some dots and a box of sidewalk chalk or some old fire hose. Find yourself a smooth parking lot and make a track to play on. I too got bored really fast just running up and down the street. I drew out a track in the middle of the street and so that was the beginning of my road racing habit. 18 years later I'm still at it.

You will want to check with the tracks you intend to race at. They may have their own set of rules. If they have a rookie class, it's usually "run what you brung" attitude. If you are going to run a spec. class, you will need to run the designated body/motor combo. I'd say that since you are new to onroad, the rookie class will be a good place to get your wheels wet. Just a note of caution... that 9.5 motor may be a bit too much to handle in a racing environment. Consider a good 17.5 motor as this will be plenty fast with boost and you can also run the spec class (no boost) when you are ready.

Quick question: Are there any front body posts that have the same diameter as the original TC6 ones, but are longer?

Wtcc, I found that the Thunder Tiger body posts are compatible with the TC6, 6.1, 6.1 worlds. I believe the front ones are also just a bit longer than the stock ones. I am running the rear posts on my TC since I broke one during a race and all the LHS had on hand was the Thunder Tiger ones.

Thanks Jason!

I saw the body posts of aRC10R5 of a clubmember today and decided to use these.

Right now I am trying to convince other clubmembers to use scale race car bodies for our touring car class. I bought a Tamiya BMW E30 Schnitzer body for test drives. The front is so high that I need 9mm longer body posts. I will post pics when the car is prepared

Yea, big fan of my Tamiya BMW M3 GT2, I would love to race the scale bodies.
