This is parking lot track but it feels and seems more like a perminent track as the area used has been the same for years, the traction is awsome, the layout is huge with a nice back straight to let your motors sing down the back straight.

The Nationals will be held at this track in August so the competition is stacked as everyone is warming up for that.

Check it out.

Default Conversions

This is my 2011 Xray GT XB808 Conversion. We have won a few races, 3rd at last summerís GT Worlds and multiple top 3 podiums across the USA the last 2 Race seasons with my son and Aja Archibald driving.



Conversions work very well as many people are doing them now. I have 2 other conversions complete for next season and will reveal them at the Podiums this summer


To all who are converting I say DO IT !!!!!!!


These GT conversions can be done with some old fashion ingenuity and be better then what is being bought at the hobby shops.

Pit-Racer, Not sure if he has the DM-1 or the GTP, but if the DM-1 look on that thread. I've got a set up that works pretty well. For the Houston track (making that assumption) I would go up on the rear shock oil and maybe stand the shocks up a little more for your big sweeper. Car will be VERY good in the infield.

My set up uses front shocks all around, and if he want's I've got the carbon for that. Still working on the stand up servo mount, but should have that early in the season.

PM me if you need some help.

Mark
