Here is there website. http://www.hobbystop.com/subsite/default.htm
They have some videos and pictures of their tracks. The dirt track last year was kind of hard cause the drought we were in and they didn't water it much. With a rusty VXL it was a pain NO TRACTION.

You will like it this year a lot of fun Fri nights are a better turnout on the off road $5.00 to race can't beat that Myke does a real good job on the track he wets it between rounds and runs a good show so there is NO problem with traction

I always loved that track and Don and Mike does a great job running races. I been racing there since 1996 and I didnt mind driving 2.2 hours from Charleston, SC to go race. I recommend m3 calibers or holeshots and longer+higher linkage on rear shock tower if you want more grip.

Well the one I'm getting already has alot done to it here it is.

mini revo pretty custom. fs-ft 4 hyper st-e

5 lipos spare parts ect ect. I order a TX/Rx setup and an Onyx 230 charger I had it all setup last year just started racing and I ended up selling it all cause I needed $$$ since we all know how bad it was back then.

Nice setup, but if The Grove is still hardpacked with a little dust on top try mounting up a set of holeshots or calibers and your dialed. I know for fact Don still has MT wheels and tires in-stock.

Aren't those tires 2.2's whould they fit on a MERV? And earlier buy linkage for the rear shocks what did you mean?

Actually, just try a softer rear spring and increase your rear toe in by .5 degree. That mini revo is a 1/18 scale?

Sorry, I thought it was 1/10. Choice of tires might me tough. I guess 2.2 might work.

I would, you will have more tire choices and softer compounds to work with. I did remember seeing 6-8 people running 1/16 scale last summer over there.

I've heard of a few people doing it so I'm asking to see how hard it would be to change over.
