Default racing

I stopped into the track today, looking at racing there. As i just moved to the area from the Chicago area, I was wondering about the racing there? It seemed a little rough today. Alot of banging and, well, not much driver respect. Can anyone tell me if this is the norm, or is it usually better? I like the track, but just a little turned off abotu todays racing, not a good thing to see for the first time.

Well...I'll try to answer this.If your refering to 1/12th scale...the class is mixed with beginners and experienced racers.It does get a little rough looking due to that.TC...we do race hard.We all know each other well,having raced together for a few years.It might have gotten a bit rough(was in the A so I couldn't tell)BUT we all do try to race as clean as we can.It's a GREAT bunch of people,all very friendly and helpfull(except Jamie ).Maybe come back and introduce yourself to some of us for a more personal perspective.Sorry it seemed that way,I understand your point,but there is alot of respect and trying going on.(except Jamie ).Mario.

Cool New to the area, and looking to get back into the groove...

Well first off, I'm 26 years old and like long walks on short piers, taking hikes, and also getting lost.

On a serious note, I live about 20 minutes or so from MHH, and am looking into the possibility of racing again.

I used to race my RC10 (Graphite Chassis w/ Stealth Trans) at Trains and Lanes in Easton, Pa when they had the outdoor clay oval (not sure if they still do or not), and raced my RC10L on the carpet track upstairs in the winter, and moved up and bought a brand new RC10T (Black Tub Chassis/Stealth Trans) and raced that at A&D's R/C works in Stroudsburg, Pa. This was what feels like eons ago. I still have my truck, and it's 100% original. Complete with a novak T-4, and a Green Machine stock 27 turn motor. Anyone who has ever driven something like this at least 10 years ago has to feel the same way about it that I do. I am looking for a 1/10 scale electric class (Don't have the $ or the motivation to move onto gas or go any smaller than 1/10 scale unless I can do it cheaply.)

Is it possible to still drive a completely original 1st Gen RC10/T and still be competitive? (I'm not really worried about all the upgrades and having the fastest car out there. I am just curious as to how well my truck can keep up with the newer stuff out there (electric 1/10 scale cars and trucks). It's all about the driving anyway.

Well just figured I'd throw that out there. I'm looking to get back into it either way.

The RL name is Jeremy btw and my nick makes sense if you read it backwards and inverted.

Throw me some ideas or some info PLEASE!

What classes do they run at Marshalls? Do they have a stock class? I always used my RC10 for Dirt Oval, and the 10T for Offroad.

oval is made up of mostly pan cars stocl and 19

they do have a touring car class and a stock oval truck class and a street spec class

as well as a novice car class

they have a greabox clas that ur rc10 wouldd fit right in but no one runs it
