Its a bit much right now. Week before last was a RC pro race, last weekend was a point race for my local track race series, this week is State race, then next week back to the local track for that points race.

ezeevdub, fair enough it might be a full calendar for you to run in every event, but i would kill to be able to run in that many events, you usa guys have so many tracks you can use, we have one, maybe 2 if u like travelling 4hrs, but apart from that one track locally it's just the bmx tracks, and personally i like the bmx tracks better

we've used carpet to keep the face of some jumps intacted (outside dirt track) but not for the whole track. The bad thing about carpet is if you have a screw loosen up on the bottom of the chassis & it catches in the carpet. Ugly sight.

yes i know what you mean, we run an all dirt track, but on one of the jumps we had to put carpet down, every now and then, cos there are so many cars goin over the carpet, it would lift up an edge!, and wouldnt you know it, the next buggy to go over it would just get caught up in the rug, start doin circle-work, and just waste time, i know what ur sayin dude can be real frustrating but all us marshalls can do is watch and wait

I haven't heard of Nitro being run indoors on carpet, but I guess it could be done. The only carpet offroad I have heard of was a few places in the Midwest (U.S.) for elec. guys during the winter in those areas. I have seen carpet for jumps used outdorrs and does work pretty well. Sure is an easy fix for jumps that don't hold up otherwise.

Dave_x8, I'm pretty sure I know what your talking about outside the US. My wife is from EU and has family there. I've been there a few years ago, and you don't have the selection or choices to chose from, not like here where you can change your car or chose tracks to run here in the US at the last minute. I'm pretty sure thats why most people get the most out of wrenching the model they have and except or expect alot from what they buy. Its expensive and not much to chose from when it comes to trying alot of things when it comes down to living outside the US. How is the racing down-under? It seems Axe Rossi is popular down there. I've been sourcing parts from Aus & the UK, because its cheaper there then here in the US.

No body stocks parts like cases or carbs, heads except the US distributor, if they have it. I needed some one off parts, and I found those items in Australia and the UK in stock and cheaper than getting if from the US distributor as no dealer had them in stock. Also, the front bearing for the Axe Rossi is rubber sealed, yet the US distributor sellss metal shielded on-road bearings for it. This is what I have to look forward to owning 3 of these engines, well now two. Sold one a week ago.

Nice video, too bad there aren't too many tracks by where you live. C'mon over to the US and we will show you around some of our tracks! Bring your cars and lets get them dirty.

my truck always gets dirty, and every time i take it out, whether it be for 5 mins or 2 hrs, i strip it down to the bare chassis, and clean it thouroughly, i've only just found out that if i spray the plastic parts with CRC, they come up like brand new, and seriously they do!, i was surprised
