To be honest, not allot of 1/10th electric other than indoor carpet off-road in the winter.

Closest indoor dirt is a hour away in the winter, and not a ton of 1/10th elec at all in the summer short of Mod SCT.

There is a decent following in the MN Off Road Nitro Series, which is about 1 race a month from April till Oct, locations are all over the state of MN though.

I race indoor off road at MMR in St. Louis Park, mentioned a few posts ago. We could use another buggy guy. The stock slash class is the biggest at MMR. You can also check out the Full Throttle Indoor Electric thread. They are in Foley, which is about 1.5 hours from MPLS.

Full Throttle up on Foley runs a nice little dirt indoor track. They have a thread here, too.
