I even have a set of 1/8 wheels that I got from somewhere too.
Swap you roller for roller.

The Durango does all right. I had some bad luck recently with odd stuff. The only limiting factor last week was wind. The back jump can cause the truck to go like a kite. I put a new body on last week. The flow-tech proline body seems to catch more air than the stock body in my opinion.

As long as the kite is out front, no problems for me.

The most popular Indoor racing near Harrisburg IMO would be Bumps and Jumps. There are also a an indoor in Maryland "The Track" and ECH (East Coast Hobbies) down in Winchester, VA. I think "The Compound" is up in northern PA. So depending on what is closest to you...Hope this helps. As for Motorama I didn't personally race last year, but I heard the people that did had fun. They were racing until early in the morning depending on what Main you made it to. The only complaint I heard was track maintenance could improve some and organization could have been a tad better... but it's a huge event!!

In addition, onroad/offroad carpet racing is run at Richfield Raceway and the The Colliseum in Frederick. Richfield raceway is running on Friday night. It's about 10 minute up the road from LCRC.

Good point Jason, I forgot all about Richfield. I plan on making it up there sometime this season. I heard they always have good food too. Do yall usually go to the Colliseum? I heard it's a nice place to go.
