Default 2013 Layout



Our mission at Spider Hobbies and “Rt281 Raceway” is to continue to improve and provide a quality environment for racers while maintaining a Family Friendly environment. RT281 Raceway is a facility designed and built by racers, for racers! We started the journey in 2011-12 with our off-road track and are back again for the 2013 racing season.
The goal was to combine our love for both 1/10th scale and 1/8th scale vehicles. The new track design allows both of these scale vehicles to enjoy the same track. We have addressed some key areas this year and have focused more on the facility quality instead of just going BIG and BIGGER!
The back stretch is 160 ft long so you can really hammer down with those BIG motors! And the jumps will allow for 1/10 scales to double or roll, while Truggies will be able to quadruple or even triple those jumps. We are going to focus even harder on the surface this year, making it even smoother. All lanes are 14 ft wide! So racing 1/8th scale will be completely competitive and 1/10th scale is going to be insane! Maybe even 4 wide?

We are offering the following classes:
• Sportsman
• 2wd 1/10 scale Buggy Mod & Stock (17.5 binky)
• 4wd 1/10 scale Buggy Mod
• 2wd Stock SC Truck (17.5 binky)
• 2wd Mod SC Truck
• 4wd SC Truck
• E-scale with nitro - Allowed
• E-Truggy with nitro – Allowed

Racing fees are as Follows:
$12.00 for the First Class, $8.00 for the Second Class, $25.00 Unlimited - if you dare.
All Races will be the following format and are dependent on time

2 qualifying heats with a re-sort between the rounds!
Double A Mains if time allows.
Point Series will be announced at a later date.

RT281 Raceway is located in Friedens, PA which is about sixty miles east of Pittsburgh. The track is located on six acres of land and has water, electricity and compressed air. The racing surface is hard packed clay with a 14 ft width, bounded by plastic pipe, wood and/or concrete barrier walls. We are using the RC4 AMB/My Laps counting system with the RC Scoring Pro Race Management System. We are currently awaiting the weather to settle down and allow us to start working the dirt. Stay Tuned.

Looking great for 2013. Hopefully this federal furlough gets worked so we can make some trips out again this year.

Tyler - Great looking layout!

I'm new to the thread having just moved back to Pennsylvania after a 15yr stay in Illinois. I look forward to turning some laps with the group this summer. Nice to see a quality track like yours pop up in the backyard of where I grew up!

Two questions - Are the grounds trailer friendly? Are the neighbors okay with the nitro noise after dark?

Thanks, Bob

Trailer Friendly Yes,

Nitro Noise 10PM on race night only. We do not allow racers there after dark during practice days.

thanks.....
