I went by today and the track is laid out, just needs to be smoothed out and have the lanes laid out. Dan said he is shooting for opening for Friday practice and will update the website this week. Also glad to see it looks like it could be 10th scale friendly. At least J82 friendly! Hope to see a class out there for them!

Was out there all dy yesterday and got alot of little stuff done for Dan we even got to try out the track the layout it very sweet and the back straight oh my god it is loooonnnngg but sweet. When I left yesterday Adam was smoothing out some of the areas of the track, I think Dan is going to get some vibrator plates to smooth out the rest of the track and then lay the pipe down. LOOKING GREAT!!!

I would say that 5 make a class. If you get 5 cars, trucks or sailboats he will make a class for you.

I bought a slash today. At $199 it's a steal. Are they raced stock or can we change the radio and go to brushless?

Count me in the SLASH Class too.. I swapped all my elctronics out and installed a 13.5 bushless.. I think that would be a good starting point.. Try it out.. see how it goes.. adjust from there..


Sounds like we got 3 1/2 here on the boards already..

I know of about 8 that were sold in SanDiego Co. alone..

gonna try and make it out for the practice day..

OK Slash owners, do you guys run 5 minute qualifiers? Should the stock trucks get a staggard start? If enough of each show up would it not be better to seperate the box stock trucks and the modified trucks? The track is pretty big, Maybe the box stock trucks could go for laps instead? Just looking for ways to keep everybody happy. I know of crt .5's in the area, if you can wrestle 5 of them up Dan will make a class for you. Don't forget that practice on Friday is open to all cars and trucks.

I am hoping for a CRT.5 class as well. It is a good 45 minute to an hour drive for me from San Diego, but I think I can swing the drive for a couple races.

The track is looking awesome by the way. Really liking some of the big jumps I saw in the pictures.

Default Will Dan post on the ARC webpage?

The raceday insight you guys provide is great.

Wonder why Dan hasnt posted anything on the ARC website?

Seems to me that when Dan posts it becomes offical.
