Next WSD $25k Race Nitro?

This is an inquiry to all the Nitro Drivers out there. Fast RC Worlds will decide in the next ten days what to run as our second event in Kissimmee Fl. We are exploring Nitro OFF Road. These are the divisions we are considering:

Pro Monster Truck
1/10 Nitro Truck
Stadium Truck (Truggy)
Expert Stadium Truck (Truggy)
1/8 Scale Buggy
Expert 1/8 Scale Buggy


What do you think? Also what date should it be held? We are looking at late Feb or early March. We would keep our race directors in tack, Brandon, Doug and Jimmy, as they know off road very well. We are looking forward to your input

Out here in the Great Northwest the MT and 1/8 Arena Truck are the most popluar besides 1/8 scale. These relatively newer classes are the bread and butter of the sport IMO b/c you have all the newbs and electric guys who want to try nitro running these classes. We always have a full class of MT's where we may not get many 1/8's, gas truck or even electrics. The Revos are very popular out here.

Post We have had some luck....

Try running one night during the week. We run on Tuesday night at our local track. This draws a lot of people that are not quite so willing to give up their weekends for racing. You will get a different crowd.

At the best we run sportsman and open 1/8th.
Sportman and open truck. All trucks run together if thier are not enough of one kind.
Outlaw Electric. Lipo and Brushless 4x4 or any other cars.

We run two 5 minute quals and 1 ten minute main. (even electrics)

Default WSD Carpet Race Postponed..Nitro Off Road Is ON

FAST RC WORLDS regrets to announce that the Inaugural $25,000 Indoor Carpet World Series for Drivers that was Scheduled for Oct 11-14 is postponed to an as yet undetermined date. We felt with only 50 entries in the single biggest cash awards race in RC History the race would not advance the Sport and would actually deter from the thousands of first time viewers possibly catching the RC bug and helping to advance RC Racing. After consulting with our sponsors and weighing all the potential outcomes the decision was made to refund all the racers who have paid entree fees and postpone the race. We are now free to direct our attention to the fastest growing and most exciting segment of the RC racing scene today NITRO OFF ROAD!

The $25.000 Nitro Off Road race will be held here late winter early spring 2007 on a date to be announced. The classes under consideration are as follows:

Production Monster Truck –
1/10th Nitro Truck –
Stadium Truck (Truggy) –
Expert Stadium Truck (Truggy) –
1/8th Scale Buggy –
Expert 1/8th Scale Buggy –

For complete details go to www.fastrcworlds.com


Finally, we would like to thank the many, many positive people who have supported our efforts especially the magazine editors of this great Sport. They seem to understand what it will take for the Sport to take the next step up to wider acceptance and growth. In closing we talked with our various sponsors as what to do with the prize money of this postponed event. It came down to two choices double the next races giveaways’ or reward those who wanted to come. We all decided to reward those who supported us. So we are issuing $500 dollar checks to all the drivers who entered and paid their fees to attend the postponed event. Thank you
