none of the place si go to race nitro indoors beside Leisure hours


The Rc Shack has a offroad outdoor track, and in the winter they race carpet oval, and recently they have created removable jumps and such for offroad carpet racing.

Jtec has a offroad outdoor track, and they also have a carpet track, but the carpet track is a new addition, i've never been to it, its not located at the Jtec hobby shop, its located at a 3 story warehouse on the 3rd floor

i discharge my reciever packs with a 1 3157 light bulb it takes a while but i wait till the light gets dimm then i charge them back up

if you havent tried a AA reciever pack try it they are great they last a whole race day without needing to be recharged
