Classes to be Ran:

Stock Slash
This will be a box stock truck, model #58024. Both stores have these trucks in stock. The only exceptions that will be allowed are using a different radio and upgrading to a specific servo. (I will edit this with a part # when I have it.) You can run the NiMh 7 cell or a 2s lipo battery. You have to run kit tires as well.

2wd Stock Buggy
ROAR rules for 2wd stock buggy. 17.5 motor, Blinky speed control(no timing) and 2s lipo.

1/10 4wd Open Buggy
No motor limits (13.5 recommended for beginners), ROAR rules for the buggy, 2s lipo.

2wd Stadium Truck
ROAR rules for 2wd stock truck. 17.5 motor, Blinky speed control(no timing) and 2s lipo.

2wd Open Short Course Truck (Pro 2)
No motor limits, ROAR rules for the truck, 2s lipo.

4wd Open Short Course Truck(Pro 4)
No motor limits, ROAR rules for the truck, 2s lipo.

Sportsman
This is a class for the beginners. This is a run what you have class. As long as it is safe, you can race it. No nitro motors.

Mini class
There was some interest to run a mini class. This would be based on the Losi Mini8, and the Traxxas Mini Revo.

1/8 E buggy
It is yet to be determined on how these will work. I know there are many around that have them. We will just have to see how the track holds up and how these cars would fare on it.

Default Stock Slash class

Can holes be drilled in the body to help air escape in the stock slash class?

I would say yes, but leave it up to the race director for the final answer, so how was the turn out on Thursday and Saturday ?
I was busy and had to miss them both.

Yes, some holes can be drilled. Don't go crazy though or you'll wreck it fast.

Thursday was good, Saturday... not as well.

With all the rain if the track is dry enough tomorrow it should be really good traction. Hope to see a bunch of people out Thursday night again.

if all goes well work wise will be making it out today.

As a tip if you are going to drill your SCT body you can use drywall tape and shoegoo to back it to help it be more durable. Another option I have tried and it works well from what I am seeing is to use fiber reinforced tape similar to what is used to hold pan car batteries in. That has helped a lot here with keeping the body in very good condition and is easy to apply.

Great day of racing! Some results:







Amazing the turn out for 1/10 4wd buggy. With AE's club spec offers a great option for those wanting to get into the class with reasonable fast power.

What's good to see is not a lot of repeated names, so must of had a few people their, as any track will tell you that it's the locals that keep it going as us out of town people just come when we get a chance and try to support, but lots of area racing, Warren, Pingree, and the MNRC series to name a few

Jon broke out some old school Flat 80s I believe and they worked well I ran some old school losi step pins initially and they were excellent to the point of almost being too grippy

When the track is watered well, tires that clear out work like a Jconcepts goosebump for one. I lent out a set of Panther step pins that i think you can still get in both soft and medium soft and the guy using them liked them when the track was watered.

As the track dried out, for tread life I personally liked the feel of the proline blockades in m4 compound though I think right now you can get them M3s which could work as well. JConcepts double dees in green compound also worked well too and I wouldn't be surprised flipouts in green compound would as well.

Others have ran proline holeshots and when staying on the line they work well from what I can tell.

For fronts, I am liking the feel of both the Jconcepts Groovy in green compound and the Proline front holeshots in m3. But I am thinking anything similar to the Groovy would be fine. I didn't however like the Jconcepts rips that much at all whether the track was drying out or wet, but I need to test them again as the tires I was using really locked in the rear end.

There will be practice only this Saturday so this will be a great time to do some test and tuning.

Recently tried a set of AKA Enduro 2s in Super Soft compound for SCT and they worked quite well. A nice option considering Proline has stopped making the Blockades in M4 compound.

Last night was fun, I need to get my 4 wheel settled down so I can drive it. The steering is crazy!! The B6D is money though! Can't wait for next week.

was cool to see the turnout for the buggy classes, especially 1/10 4wd. Dustin's losi once he gets that belt issue sorted will be tough to beat!

He is fast. It's rather impressive to see how fast he is knowing he's fairly new to racing.
