Smile Moving to Tucson

Hi all,
I'm going to be moving to Tucson from Ridgecrest, CA (middle of nowhere in the Mojave) in a couple of weeks and was curious what setup works best on your offroad track.

I have a XXX-SCT and a T4 while my son has an SC-10 2wd. We currently race on a hard-pack track in town that I use AKA Slicks on my XXX-SCT while my son uses Calibers. The track tears up tires, but its very fast. Check out the pictures on Facebook - Ridgecrest Competition Raceway.

We both run 3700k brushless systems and race in what we call the Sportsman class.

We're looking forward to seeing your track and get back to racing after missing out for the past few weeks while we've been getting our house ready for sale.

Finally, what are entry fees for racing?

Gridiorns work pretty good on my SC10.2.

The off road classes that are run are:

Novice - a run what you have class for new racers. No real motor limit but is limited to 2S battery

17.5 Stock buggy

17.5 Stock SC

4X4 SC

4x4 Buggy

Mod Buggy

Mod SC (Not a big class as most have moved to 17.5 stock)

1/8 scale (electric and nitro run together)

There is also a dirt oval which usually has Late Model and open class

Look forward to meeting you.

Race fees are $8 first class and $5 each class after on Wednesdays, and $10 first class on Satudays(not sure about 2nd class cost). And there isnt mod sct anymore. I like running aka city blocks on my 2wd sct, they seem to last long too. Hope you guys have a safe trip!

I agree. That was the point of my post here a month or so ago. Who is sportsman and who is "expert" is subjective. I have been working in PHX and racing at W3 on wednsdays (hope to make it to HT one last time on the 14th). Last week, we had 39 entries in 17.5 buggy. And like 4-5 in novice, which was mostly kids. The TQ did something like 16 5:00 or close to that. I did a 15 5:00 and qualified 15th. Which put me 7th in the BMain, which I was glad to make. In the B main, the time difference between the leader and the 10th qualified (2 bumps) was less than 10 seconds. That made for some tight and fun racing, I had a blast. I finish 6th and was fighting for 5th for a while, but for me it might as well been the A Main. I was racing a tight race with racing peers that are equal in speed to me. My favorite kind of racing. When I raced at CV, we had what? 4-5 people in 17.5 on a good night. Same people every week, pretty much finishing in the same order. Made me wanna quit, it was boring. HT is lucky enough to have 12+ drivers in 17.5 each week. And for a while we had close to 20 and that made for fun racing. Racing where a couple seconds could land me 1 main lower. I just tray to qualify as best I can and win what ever main I am in, even if its the Z main. I was originally for the 17.5 sportsman class, but it quickly became exactly as described in the article listed above. When I was in sportsman, I was a sand bagger, when I ran 17.5 I was just lap traffic for everyone else and I was racing alone. It was not very much fun at all.

Wow that was a well written article! I agree, splitting classes doesn't solve anything. That's what qualifying is for! I also think that racing with people faster than you helps make you a better driver.

TUCSON Bound!

Bound for Tucson area the first week of July and looking for some offroad racing action. I see Traction closed. Is Hobby Town the only track left? Anywhere I could see picts of the track or get additional race information?
