Ultimate hobbies indoor offroad carpet track in Bristol, PA theres guys from Philly that go there a good group of guys including myself. Theres a tread on the racing forum on here.

If you want to race outdoors also theres Hobby Hut like mention before on here they have no issues with running electric 1/8 scales with nitro 1/8s Truggys i dont have any issues . I say this if a track doesnt allow electric to run with nitros if theres not enough to seperate into thier own class thats just wrong i dont agree with that one.

Your turning racers away.

Im doing some easy mods to make that tank lighter !

Not sure what they really carry in stock. Never really looked around the store yet. Not running the stock 18t pinion? They are heavy for sure. Can't wait to see what you do to change that.

I have the roller not the RTR model but im using a Toro esc/Tenshock 4600kv motor and people where telling me to start out with a 14t or a 15t but thats for a bigger outdoor track though . a 13t or 12t pinion i think whould be good on that Ultimate track i mean if its to much than just mess with the Throttle Epa.

Yea i got some easy mods and it involves the plastics on it i got it from the guys on the SCTE tread on here.
