My schedule when I move out to chandler in September is Thurs-Sat, 6am to 6pm. Any chance of early or mid week races later in the year?

Right now your perfect! Races on Thursday and Saturday nights start at 7pm so until the cold weather time change you can make both night. Saturday races will likely go back to noon ish when the summer heat ends. Not sure what happens to Thursday night times as it does get really cold at night but people work so they can't start too early. I think it's 5-6pm in the winter months so you can make second quali and the main.

Default Take a look..

Take a look at the nitro and Electric Novice heats and see the new talent! Thomas and Nathan are impressive, for just getting back to the track!

Have a good Sunday all, thank you for racing and thanks to those that make it possible!

Some of the best track conditions I have ever seen on the 8th scale last night. Lots of great competition and close racing in the truggy class. Most fun I've had in a while!

It was a fun night! Neat having different weather here for a change. Lightening going off in the distance during the first qual gave it a good feel

Truggy race was bomb. You guys were on rails for sure. I never marshalled the back straight, and man was I uncomfortable back there. You really get to see just how fast these cars are from back there.

Haha, during Nitro Challenge Dave D. and I would sit on the hay bails at the end of the straight. We'd see wou'd sit there the longest when cars would get out of shape coming into that turn. Good times.

Does anyone have a good setup for a D8 for the track? Im running a Tekno V4 electric conversion, but the D8 nitro setup is still a good starting point I've found when going to a new track. I'm looking for Tires, diff and shock oil weights, pistons, springs and any more detail you can give.

Also any practice days during the week?

Try the front shocks in outside hole on tower & arms, grey spring, 1.4mm pistons, 500 oil, 103mm shock length/droop, 2.4mm swaybar, 5k diff, -2 camber, 1* toe-out, 28mm ride height.

Rear shocks outside on tower & arm, 1.2mm piston, 76mm orange spring, 350 oil, 114mm shock length/droop, 2.8mm swaybar, -2 camber, short wheelbase, 29mm ride height, 3k diff, 5k center diff, Hara hubs use lower hinge pin hole, middle camber link hole on Hara hubs, inside column middle height camber link hole on rear tower.

hope this helps

Have the right tires and you're way ahead of the curve and with as much traction as the dirt has here, it's easy to go fast!
