everything is still looking good for the 10th. we will be finishing up and making some changes to the track this weekend. guys with e buggies and truggies feel free to come on out. as of now i think there will be more than enough for a full heat or so and if not we will run u guys with the nitro guys.
we will be having a practice day the 9th for 5$ per racer.

we plan to get our schedule up asap as we are waiting on some other tracks to get in gear and post theirs. as of now we only plan to run 1 big race a month, but depending on turnout and demand we are possibly thinking about having 1 big race and 1 club/ point series race per month. more info as it becomes available

We will run ANY class that has 5 or more cars, but our layouts will not be easy with 10th scale trucks or buggies just a forewarning

From the video, your layout is alot more 1/10 friendly than the last one.

The video does absolutely no justice to the track whatsoever lol. The lap I made in the video was probably the best lap I've done so far and the layout is not very easy at all to be honest. We are basically going to be changing the whole infield this weekend as long as the weather holds so stay tuned for more videos

I think 1/10 should be fine. The cars are pretty fast these days, especially 4wd 1/10. But I guess there won't be a class if no ones going to run them anyway. Either way, ill try and make it out with my truggy.

If I still had my 10th scale stuff I definitely would as well. But I sold all that stuff to make way for the nitro season. My durango wouldve been great on that track. It always handled great on outdoor tracks. But anyway, truggy it is for now.

I know you want to get everyone in to race. But i think mixing nitro with electric on a race for money is somewhat unfair. Seeing as guys with a mamba kit or something similar can easily do 90mph. correct me if i'm wrong. I'm just saying that worries me. I should be there on the 10th running my 1/8 nitro buggy.

Speed kills. I make sure to not gear for "90 mph"

That would be insane and impossible to control, therefore there nitro guy would have an advantage.

I've seen Nitro mixed with electric, and it's very fair. Nitro competes just fine.
