my racing car this year is TC6, still have a TC5 for sale and just rebuilt my TC3 as I got a new HW Xerun 120A that fits perfectly, will more than likely set this car as a wet chassis.

The setup in Debbie's is super cool, you are the only ones in the US to have such places really in the world, shop on the spot, tracks etc...we had a place in Ireland who tried that but unfortunately, they were way to short on knowledge when it came to cars and track building.

Our track has amazing commodities, electricity on each large tables (and plenty of them) a lift system for wheelchair access, even ladies and gents separate toilets a small kitchen area for big dates and back to back off road and on road tracks with a control office each.

a little limited for track changes and a little too wide for 1/10th elec.

What are all the red trucks we can see on pics?

There's a concrete company behind the track.

Everytime I hit a dot Mine likes to turtle but That's our track being really tight and pushing a little too hard.

I find the more you allow the car to roll the less the chance of it rolling over. as it takes longer to get all of the suspension compressed.

Whoever had that white R9R body should find a way to plant the rear better . R9R bodies are very demanding !

It is quite big alright, more IC than electrics, but you have to think that in France we run a lot of 1/5th scale too, my gearing varies from 7.30 to 7.70 but we race 10.5t open, around 90km at the end of the straight.

There is a shorter track option that I prefer personally, more "electric" than the full track.

Speedo is RSpro and motor LRP X12, in TC3 Xerun 120A and X12 again, my son runs the same setup and car as me in championship. Cell IP 5800 60C.

Very good Olly, 90km/h is pretty fast , and I am sure it makes for great battles on that track ! Jdeadman your video was a 12scale Bmain not Vta fttc4 ...anyway Olly good luck racing at nats.....

Jdeadman , after a little search I found a few vta videos, and it seems the fttc4 is doing well against the competition . There is quite a bit of carnage going on though !
