THey are hungary for thats for sure. 1 to 2 tenths a lap if your not running tires with less than 2 or 3 runs on them at most asphalt tracks. Carpet racing on rubber tires I could get about 2 weeks or so and then need fresh tires.

The SCT racing has been great for me as it is very affordable and most tracks run close enough rules that I can go to many different tracks and have a good time. Tough to beat Spec SCT racing. More and more guys are running it as money becomes tighter.
he actually ran an 8th scale buggy for i think was 2 tanks of fuel but couldn't stand the mess it made for him to clean up so sold it quick

No matter the track your at this is always the best thing to do.

Look over the years I only had one thing stolen and the theif did it while I went up to race my heat race. They stole a Max Mox tire machine right of the tire truing station. It was their when I went to race and 5 minutes later after my heat it was gone!!!!!!!!! I have a few ideas who it was but couldn't prove it but safe to say if I would of he was in for a long night. This one really had me pissed as I had it out and available for all to use when I raced. No need to steal it as I didn't charge anything to use it.

Other than that over the 20 years of racing I had various misc. tools borrowed and where not brought back but honestly it was not malicious like my tire machine. I got the tool back eventually as they just forgot when they packed up or where in a hurry before a heat race and just plain forgot to bring it back. Hey I have done it but I do return it.

I think there are a couple glow ignighters and screwdrivers in the lost and found.

Believe it or not there has not been much that walked away at bumps over the years, most people bring stuff to me saying they found it, or I see it the next day laying somewhere.
If it continues to be a problem I will install a camera over the starting area.
There are a couple in the pits, I think I can add 16 to the system - I think I have 8 now - So I have the room to expand if I need to.

put ur name on the stuff as best u can. i've even seen guys do on, for instance, their starter boxes what we did in the film world. ingrave 'stolen from YOUR NAME' on the box. that way if folks saw some1 who wasnt you with your box, that wouldnt look good now would it?

Name on certain items like a glow driver is easy enough to do or the starter box. I always had a different color starter box so mine stoo out vs all the other ones.

Like I mentioned glow ignitors are one thing that when guys are in a hurry they use whatever one they see on the tables and sometimes they just forget in the moment to put it back. This is an isolated case and not the norm.

On another note we are going to have two more Spec Slash racers in the near future. Two friends of mine bought new ones last night and all the stuff to go with it. Sunday they are coming in to work on them and get them setup for Tuesdays practice. They ran rental Slashs on Tuesday and did exceptionally well on the layout we have. They can't wait to start running after the many years of not running. Both use to run at PS back in the day when they where young kids. Great to have them back racing.

Are you looking for just a receiver or a whole Airtronics radio system?

You will have a good time. SCT class is killer at Bumps and so is the 2wd mod buggy. Those classes get great turnouts and great racing going on in those classes. Mod truck has been doing well and 1/8 at leat on points days does well to. So far been a great year for offroad at Bumps. Great support shown by the racers.
