Race away from home, the $150 plus $300.00-$350.00.

$50.00 for club racing cant be, i can see if its a big event race. luckly for me the track i go to is, only a half of a hour. and i only race one nitro, buggy/truggy.
and for a second class, i race a slash. and bring by own, food/drinks saves money thats for sure.

i only pay $17.00 for one class,i think thats great that ,they arent charging more than that people really dont, have a lot money right now.

Ok, kind of self explanatory our club races have E mains buggy and truggy, and compressor, pit area, washrooms (not portables) sprinkler system for the track, bobcat, backhoe and compactor, hydro, bbq, dual ABM, lights and people that get paid 40h a week to groom the track, also the track gets changed 3 to 4 times a season.

Default About $5,000 last summer

Two 8ight-T's bought new, 2 Novarossi's, all the Spektrum electronics, all the support equipment and tools, car bodies, track fees , travel expenses and consumables like tires , fuel etc. An entire season of summer outdoor 1/8th scale cost me about 5 grand. But time well spent with my teenage son.! = priceless
