The IROCC winter race and the TZGP are the two races etched in stone on my carpet calendar. Don't miss this one!

1/12th scalers heads up: this is basically our local nationals for the class. A huge field that gets tighter and tighter as you get toward the top. Hosted by a great group of guys and gals, too.

Less than a week away folks! I'm excited for my first race in Victoria. Hoping for a good F1 turn out. I am bringing my 1 race day old VBC LightningF with me.

Hi all,

Just a heads up that all racers will receive a complimentary bottle of SXT 3.0 traction compound at the race. This should make it slightly easier for those battling air travel.
