Default Tracks in SoCal?

Hi,

I'm just getting back into the sport and would like to know where you race in the OC/IE/Riverside area? I'm mainly interested in offroad but would like to try touring car also.

Thanks!

Default Sun Valley link

Resurrecting this thread because I'm moving out to Perris in a week! Looks like I need to get into 1/8 scale off-road.

Sun Valley looks cool, but I don't know if they are still active.

1/8 scale is hot right now

If your moving to Perris then theres 3 1/8 scale tracks right near you. The dirt in Hemet, Thunder Alley in Beaumont, and ARC in Murietta.

The only electric tracks (sedan) besides So Cal are parking lot tracks .

No permanent on-road tracks East of Montclair - that's hurting! Considering the high inital cost of 1/8th scale, it's going to take me a while to get into it.

How's 10th scale off-road out there? I'm ready for that now.

I don't know of any electric offroad out here since Titus hobbies closed

The cost of 1/8 scale isn't too bad concidering a touring car is $400 these days. Batteries arent cheap either, concidering they jump in capacity every few months. When Lipo hits the scene you'll need new batteries, charger, and ESC (with voltage cutoff) to run those. 1/8 scale is looking more and more appealing if you ask me

I'm not sure how active they're bi-weekly offroad racing is, but I believe it's still going. I know for sure that the results aren't up to date. I raced onroad on 12/11 and the results haven't been posted. I think there was also a big offroad race on 12/18 and no results yet. So the results may not be a good indication of how active they are.

I really can't compare it to many other tracks, but their offraod track is awesome. It's like a mini supercross track.

Well, it looks like kits run between mid-400's and high 700's. Then you also have the cost of a competitive engine, another couple hundred at least for starters. Now, I've probably poured in several thousands into RC over the years, but it would still be my single biggest RC purchase.

What are the popular classes out there? Buggy?, truggy?, monsters? What size engine is usually run for novices?

Buggy's still reign supreme but truggy's aren't far behind. Monsters, I can't really say. The problem with truggy's and monsters is the tires are so damn expensive (everything is expensive in this hobby)

The only 10th scale off-road track I am aware of is Extreme RPM Racing in Grand Terrace. (Barton Road off 215 Fwy) They race Friday nights and have just started Sat. nights again. Good turn out and a friendly group.

I've been trying to dig up any info on this new offroad track in Santa Ana. So far, I've found out that it's on the corner of Fairview and Edinger, but that's all the info I have. Does anyone have a link or a phone number to whomever is running the track? Hours of operation? 1/8 scale buggy?

Thanks.

Thanks, Killer.

I drove by there today and I couldn't find the track. I went into Centennial Park off of Edinger and drove all over. I drove by the construction site on the Fairview side and didn't see anything either.

edit - I just saw your post in the Socal forum. I was looking in the wrong spot. doh!

Thanks again, I appreciate your help.
