Thanks,

M3 Calibers are the hot ticket for SC on the Full Throttle indoor track.

I would stay away from Goosbumps as the track is really hard and tacky and these just appear to maybe work better on something with a little more lome to it. $.02 I ran bow ties and was quite satisfied. My only issue was having the soft stock foam.

They are not running 4wd inside. Sean said they tried, but it's just too small to make it work. Not any faster than the buggies or trucks.

Try this setup for a starting point.

Shocks Middle hole top FR/RR
Inside hole bottom FR/RR
35wt oil FR with Gold springs #3 piston
35wt oil RR with Grey or Silver #1 piston

30deg caster blocks, front upper link inside on tower and carrier
Rear upper link inside hole with one spacer, and outside on hub

Ran battery all the way forward but add weight 1.5oz behind battery and maybe another .5 oz up on the front sides of the servo.

I am planning to make the trip up Saturday the 6th.

One more SC10.

Looking for Rear kit tires cheap. Mounted or not doesn't matter, just don't want them to be worn.

I went up and ran again Saturday. Truck and Short Course. You guys are missing out if you want to play in the dirt. It is some really intense close quarters dirt slingin'. Great practice for patience and consistency. Plus he pays back so if you do well, its a really inexpensive day!

Well the time is getting near! Sean and i started putting the indoor track together at full throttle in foley. We figured out the watering situation and a rough idea of how the layout is going to go. We put in a full day in on saturday but could only get so far with only 2 people. I know anyone is welcome to come help this next weekend. He says he will work on it during his lunch break when he gets a chance. Also the pit area is going to be extended to twice the size it is now, but none of this will happen without some more help. He is also selling a season pass for 100 dollars which is good for the first class's entry fee for the entire season. Im not sure on prices to race yet but i know it will be well worth it.

I got a season pass but will not be able to make it very often. Would love to see some pictures... Is there any type of schedule for this winter? When will the first race be?
