I can't wait to come down again. Will hopefully have enough equipment collected in the next week or two to actually put a car on the track.

The offroad track is roughed in, there is a good possiblity of them being on the Mnrc Schedule. They are looking at offroad races atleast a couple times a month. (nitro and electric)
Pit tables look familiar Marshall?

I don't run the class but I'm guessing brushless is pretty much needed. Some foams and a late model body. I believe everyone is running Associated 4wd stuff.

It really open to anything. Stock, mod and everything in between.

Most of everyone is running associated. But its open to anything.

This link should take you right to their rules. As far as what most people are running, hopefully rcnate can help you on that.

I know oval racing isn't something everyone gets excited about, but this is a top notch facility that everyone should check out at least once. Tom and Charlie have built a great place, and it will only get better once the ground thaws.

There's three of us that come from Iowa about every other week. We our running RC18T's with Mamba 6800kv motors and 2 cell Li-po's. We also have McAllistor latemodel bodies on them.

Sounds like there will be a couple 2wd's up there for the nationals.

Will this indoor dirt oval be open to race over the spring and summer months? Or does something else happen outdoors?
