I didn't get to race but had a blast hanging out after racing was all over to run some packs.
Thanks.... I ordered both just in case....

Last Wednesday there were no more plugs. Hopefully they're in now.
If not, hopefully some people will run VTA or 17.5 TC in addition to USGT. I hate running one class. Please post here if possible with alternative classes you might run. Thanks for all the info guys.

Awesome. Thanks for the correction. Hopefully they have them in stock tonight or around the pits. I need them (and tires!)

If 360 doesn't get them in... they are the same size plugs airplane guys use for the fun flyer. Look up 3.5mm plugs and tons of people sell them, Casrtle, Horizon, Bruckner, Cruzin, etc....

So let me get this straight as I am gonna be looking to come run some on road soon. Spec class has pretty much replaced 17.5. Track has rental motors? Or I can buy a spec motor from the track? 3.5mm connectors for the ESC to motor?

1/12 scale is 13.5? or 17.5?
F1 is popular? 21.5? or 25.5? Is this a motor of the week class like USGT has turned into?
VTA is pretty non-existent?
5 cars make a class?
All classes use spec tires? Do I have to buy at the track or can I bring my own?

Racing on Wed nights? Any other nights? Any nights open for practice?

I know a lot of PIA questions but I want to make sure I am all set up before I get there.

yes 10.5 spec has replaced 17.5 tc, and 17.5 1/12th. You can buy a motor at the track which stays at the track for $45. Or you can rent a motor per race for $15. 3.5 female plugs on esc wires. The 3.5 female plugs are supplied by the track.

1/12 scale is 13.5? or 17.5? 1/12th is 10.5 Spec.
F1 is popular? 21.5? or 25.5? Is this a motor of the week class like USGT has turned into? Yes, 25.5. Yes
VTA is pretty non-existent? Pretty much
5 cars make a class? Starting with our point series the only classes available will be spec tc, spec 12, usgt, f1, and novice
All classes use spec tires? Yes, all available at the track. Do I have to buy at the track or can I bring my own? You can bring your own or buy at track.

Racing on Wed nights? Any other nights? Any nights open for practice? Racing wed. Nights, and Sunday all day. We may Be adding Friday’s soon.

I know a lot of PIA questions but I want to make sure I am all set up before I get there.
