Would you run 10th scale or 12th or for that matter mini cooper or GT?

Let me know

Have a great day
Yes.

More likely once. But nice to have options since my schedule is never consistent.

Maybe, depends on layout and nature of track. I've raced on tracks that small, but its a struggle. Carpet helps with size, since you can run tighter and run 1/12th, but most tracks that small usually don't hold enough interest or keep the racing clean enough.

Depending on the track. If smooth enough, then I might run 1/12th scale, but more likely only on carpet. 1/10th if big enough. GT only as second class.

I think 70' is definately on the small side, need about another 30' on the straight.

If it is fairly close (within 15 or so miles) I'd go weekly as well.

Tech Profit Randy Caster Has Spoken!

I'd just like to see more interest in the local onroad scene ... there are plenty of guys out there... I guess it's just a matter of getting them excited about racing again!

It would just be nice to be racing sedan more than once a month since I work on the weekends. I've got this weekend off and was going to head to the Tamiya track for the second weekend in a row, and now the forecast says rain...

Don't question who he is. Jump aboard the bandwagon. It seems Filipow knows who he is. J is a reputable person, that is good enough for me to believe.

Indoor asphalt would be a dream track.
Indeed. There was one, once, locally...

I don't think it's straight was much more than 60', but there was banking to toss the car onto which allowed mod drivers to stay in the throttle longer than if the track had been flat.

I anyone's going to go to the effort of building another indoor asphalt track, pls consider a slightly varying elevation (2 feet over, say, a distance of 10) on parts of the track that are the farthest away from the driver's stand and at least one permanent varying-radius-corner (which would be either a decreasing-radius corner or an increasing-radius corner, depending on which direction the track was run that week) to make things interesting.

Yeah. You may have to read that last paragraph two or three times to reap the genuis contained within.

I think I'd race at your track about once every 4 months..

Although, if you opened a "permanent indoor" track in the Inland Empire (Ontario, Chino, Rancho Cucamonga), I'd be there at least 2 to 3 times per week!
