Thank you both for the replies and just FYI as of this writing amain has both 32 & 34 TP tires in stock.

So nothig wrong with TP 34s per say....so temps on the chart are of the track surface and not air temp then?

I just found out today that OCRC closed, I am beyond shocked. Been going there for years with my off road electrics. I am not about to drive to SD to their track so selling all my Off Road stuff and going On Road. What chassis is most popular at CAL? Looking to buy

Mugen, Xray, ARC, Awesomatix and Yokomo, all are good chassis.

seems like a really quick decision to switch to on road. I would wait as there have been quite a few different talks of Ocrc replacements coming. Considering they closed three months ago and itís been 6 months since talks of them closing began, you donít need to make such a drastic decision at the drop of a hat.

I didn't pull up anything searching. Who took over CAL after Charlie passed? Seems to be doing great!

Mike Rydwell of Exotek fame.

And yes, he has been doing quite well with the track.

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to get back into RC racing, seems like there are very few tracks left in the LA/OC area. Saddening to say the least. I see there was recent questions about tires from someone else, a lot has changed since I last raced On-Road I see (I last raced at SoCal in the early 2Ks, to give you an idea the last car I drove at SoCal was a Shcumacher Mission). My last Off-road attempt was at WCRC about a week before they closed. I love the precision of On-Road vs Off-Road. I am probably going to drop by this weekend and check it out. I was just wondering about tires, inserts, things of that nature. More than likely will be able to come up with my own setups over time, just looking for a base-line idea of what to order with the car I choose (Likely a Yokomo at this point since Team Associated doesn't seem to make a touring car any longer). At any rate, I appreciate any help that anyone can provide.

Most of the racers run solaris 36 or team powers 36

So I've been out the last couple times the track was opened... First time out with the new car, I set it on the track completely box stock setup and it was suggested that I race in the novice class, that was a good idea as I was about 2 seconds off the pace of the sportsman 21.5 class. I learned a lot about the car, went home and made some changes (mainly softening up the front suspension a little bit, also a little heavier diff oil), came back for the practice last weekend, and those changes gave me a bit more than 2 seconds (also turned ~400 laps of practice).

Looking forward to next weekend out at the track!

Default New Layout Ideas

Hey everyone,

Just a few doodles I drew up for some fresh never have I ever seen this layout ideas:

Idea 1 Clockwise
  • Very much what we are used to at cal raceway, except there is a interesting curve full of yellow dots in the inside



Idea 2 Also Clockwise
  • Features 2 mid size corners in the infield with one classic for cal raceway and a new one made of all yellow dots
  • Back straight is shortened and feautures a backstraight size we have never used extended with 2 big yellow dots
  • "Personally, this is one I would love to drive on this year (please mike!)"

Layout Idea 3 Counter Clockwise:
  • Slight Variation of my Layout 2 Idea, but with an extension of the right side corners were used to
  • The new 2nd corner slightly smaller but in reverse and with dots on your right now




Layout Idea 4 clockwise:
  • Features a ultra tight left 180 degree hair pin
  • Has an interesting middle swoop covered in dots with walls on both sides

Layout Idea 5 Clockwise:
  • Pretty similar to Layout 4 idea but with a much smoother infield yellow dot sweeper
  • Pretty fast layout with basically 3 sweepers


Layout Idea 6 Counter clockwise:
  • Features a new turn 3 right hander covered in dots
