I'm not sure how a parking lot track beats an indoor carpet track. Other than a few heats of a gas sedan class, there isn't much to beat. Unless you like bringing your own table, chair, ez-up, generator, ice chest, not to mention the weather (wind, rain, cold, heat). To each his own.

For those that like indoor, air conditioning, chairs, clean pits, power, snack bar, large projection tv, hobby shop, and hot chicks, can come to my place.

As far as misbehaving pros, pro or not, leave your attitude at home.

On the internet hobby shop, we'll have that too.


Stay tuned!

Hebiki: I plan on having something like this to dispense towels.



The plan is to also carry air freshener by the drum.

RC racers are all kids, goofing around is part of what makes it fun to go to the track.

I like asphalt racing myself, indoor or outdoor. Not much experience with carpet yet. I'm sure once it opens, I will be getting a lot. Looking forward to it.

I wouldn't knock parking lot racing, I know there is a lot involved, but when thats the only thing going on......

Their is a difference between goofing and poor behavior.. Don I used to really like parking lot racing but after 1 year of carpet racing..I like it a lot more..I think if you guys give the carpet a chance(that would be more than just a few races)you will get hooked..It should be huge in the area..

Believe me, I am going to give more then a chance. Parking lot racing around here is about the only thing that has kept things going. Hopefully this track will be open soon enough for practice before the Vegas race since I didn't make it up for the Carpet Nats. I know a lot of racers will be excited about this track and opprotunity.

no matter what or which ONLY allow and use ONE type of tire addictive so there are no traction issues long term. mixing doesn't lend itself to good traction........ imho

maybe "jack the gripper" as it seems to have become a standard on carpet
