Wow, Amazing facility. I cant wait to race there next season... Just sucks that its a 45 min drive

On another note. Does anyone from this facility have some good gearing on a B4 running stock and 6 min runtimes... WOW is next week and I really dont want to figure it out considering the car isnt even built yet lol

Yeah, but that 45 min drive goes by very quickly when you're completely blazed on Amsterdam's finest.

Default NO DIRT!!??

I thought the same way when I first notice it was carpet racing, but after some minor setup changes and some new Schumacher tires it was very entertaining. Most of us from the 1/8 Nitro series are racing indoors here at Fastcats, due to the Canadian snow.

I would drive 45 min to that place every day. I wish we had something like that in Miami.

no dout...
the 1/10 racers easily break in summer, not to mention the brittle plastics in sub-zero temps...

T4 with carpet traction, its the most excitement Ive had with this truck, but murder on the drive system.
Ive broken 2 "sets" of CVD assemblies, 3 roll pins, (stripped one rim after changing to solid pins) 2 of the 4 motor plate screws snapped and 3pairs of slippers...
I'm running a MambaMAX5700 with 2cell 6000 Lipo
