OSR...i don't see the cut-out for the engine...i will sell you a 6 gal. ninja to put in the DB8...needs bearings, rod, and piston/sleeve...i will let it go for 475.00 shipped...heck, i would drop it off myself...i figure that would still be cheaper than buying the electrics for the car...

you show me how fun they can be...i will get one this year also

Also, I am also letting everyone know. Altoona Raceway will have a Hobby shop in the Duncansville area, actual store front. Open date of end of Feb. Hours of operation still in the works. Quite possibly an indoor track running 2 times a month.
Hey Rob,

Indoor dirt?

I did a fair amount of research and it comes down to the same thing it always has. YOU DON'T NEED THE FASTEST MOTOR AVAILABLE IN ORDER TO GO FAST!!!!! There are 2500kv and even 2800kv motors out there, but when you check into what the pros are running most of them are running 1900kv - 2100kv. Power is only usable if you can control it!!
I hope it is comparable to running a mod 4wd, if it is I know you'll have one

Indoor carpet, would be like the old indoor Altoona - minus the attitude.

Movable jumps for an off-road feel is possible too.

I would agree on the weekly races. So many possiblities, slash,1/10 buggy, 1/10 oval, late models, outlaw sprints, 1/12 onroad, and touringcar. I know afew indoor tracks that run Wednesday,Friday, and Saturday. I have the feeling that the crowd will be there since the change of management with the right ideas and atitude. Old saying goes,"If you build it, they will come".

The space is used the other 2 weekends. I'm considering Saturdays while Richfield is running fridays (to avoid conflicts of interest) and then have a rotating schedule during outdoor season

I can help with promoting or advertising for Altoona Raceway and Hobbies. I done it before down here for a track owner and I even made road signs for his track.
