Butters:
Thanks for the info, I'll look in to it.
gspot:
That sucks. If I'm out there, do you guys think there is enough interest to start something up for OnRaod guys, or is there just not enough serious racers in the area? A small club would be cool that we alll organized, but not a professional venue with shop (I know that's a bigger job). I'm talking more about just a set up for everyone to get together like a parking lot race, but maybe inside too.

Thanks. If that's true, then that sucks. But, I won't be that bummed. At the level of club racing, its more about fun, and when you smoke someone, even if the other guy wins, he knows and you know. If someone else wins that way, its an empty win. I wouldn't feel good to win that way knowing the faster guy checked out on me. I couldn't look him in the face. To me, club racing is about having fun and laughing with new friends. If that's really absent from there, then that's too bad. I'm not giving up on my favorite hobby, so I'd have to find somewhere else to run with like minded racers.

Check out this super fast and fun track in Burlington VT. Very fast and technical! Elevated Drivers stand. High banked turns, good rhythm sections, big jumps, wide lanes(Good for 4-6 1/8 sized vehicles at a time), long/fast technical sweeping corners. perfect for 1/8 sized racing. The buggies and Truggys really open up at Sears Lane!!! Very relaxed and laid back atmosphere. More of a club track. Open to all! Any sized R/C is welcome.
I have been all over New England and seen a lot of the tracks in the region and this is one of the nicest looking and absolutely most fun tracks around!
Not to be missed if you are in the Northern New England area! This is maintained by a small group of enthusiasts that wanted a fun place to meet up with others and get their race on!

p.m. me for more info but this track is worth it! The more the better!
