Not worried about rubber tires, just need to see how much the foams really hook up there.
We are looking forward to your visit

I think IGT is more reasonable for someone to get started it that Class......
If it all works out we might be seeing a BUNCH of IGT'S.....anyone that is still hanging onto one might wanna dust her off!...FRANK,not to mention names
whatever you Race..1/10th, electric,gas,1/8th scale ......you are gonna love driving it on this Track!!
I had fun with 17.5 blinky!!

I've been looking at them.. Hopefully they'll do an update to it next season that'll include all the option al stuff like they did the XT8. Either that or a Serpent, possibly a Kyosho. I wouldn't be caught dead running that "M word" brand. IGT would be allright if we could do an unlimited class.

Nothing wrong with those "M" word products. Been running them for years and have had some good luck with them (and plenty of trophies to boot). But, I also dabble with other brands as well (Serpent, Xray, Kyosho). Just have whatever you prefer ready because with this new track, it is time to shift gears to a higher level.

LOL!! I hear ya buddy!! I don't really have anything against them. We used to give somebody (can't remember who at the moment) that ran offroad with us grief for running them just to push their buttons.

Im not sure how driving at night would be. Those lights better be phenominal because I know it was wonky driving at the old track with the generator lights going. And, Im not sure how many people you would exclude by starting friday night. Keep it day time imo and cover/ac the drivers stand.

I talked to my son on the way to the house tonight. He said he'd like to give 1/10 scale a shot so you can count one of us in. I wanna see how things are gonna go with either the IGT class or maybe 1/8 will take off now. Then I'll burn a hole in the Visa.

Get ready to burn that hole in your Visa either way on 8th scale. I will tell you that you will be burning a bigger one with the 8th scale Lola over the 8th scale IGT cars. I run both and have a blast with both at most of the races I've attended. Just remember with 8th scale Lola, find you a good, cheap tire source because that is where a lot of your cost will occur.
