Will this be a brushless class? I ran a Spec SK at Stafford a few years ago, and would be interested in running again this winter... How many entries last Wednesday night?

Do you guys sell the sk car kits and if not where can we get them? Also have you thought about running the legend cars? like a 17.5 or a 13.5 spec class.

Jim (the owner) does sell the sk car kits. The sk kits are a different type of legends car.

PS Jim used to own stafford so it's the same guy as before.

Default Wed night spec racing

We are trying to run a legends type of class with the Excalibur Spec SK. This is a car that I can get parts for without problems. We all run the same chassis (conversion kit is $20.00) Roller is $100. We run the SK Coup bodies, spec tires and spec batteries. A purple end bell 27 turn stock motor. We are looking to keep this cheap, inexpensive, but most importantly FUN. No cry babies wanted. If you can't come out and have fun in this class than you shouldn't be racing. We have a lot of new beginners along with some old timers from manchester Hobbies. Everyone helps each other to improve, no secrets here.

So the racing starts at 7:00pm every wed. We are air conditioned and the place is clean. Plenty of parking and food places all around us. I can see this class is really taking off with a lot of new people just getting into rc. So come and join in the fun.

See you tonight
JIM

Default Friday Night was a blast

Our biggest turnout of the year and it will only get bigger. We had a great time and the SC A Main was outstanding as Andy Z beat Stan K and Mike M by a wisker. The three battled all night. Kyle N had a great night getting into the A Main. It was great to see Neal Dickey (and kids) back with Jim and Ron. It is always nice to see friendly faces.

I just wanted to thank everyone for such a great start to the season.

Jim
