This race was so good last year by far the most fun i have ever had at a race.
the triple was not the problem....it was the 2 foot lander that was the problem.

Tire of choice should still be pink taper pins.

I'm not sure if we will be on slicks this year though.

Check this link for hotels. Type in "hotel" in the search box. There are a couple that are almost on the fairgrounds.

In for 1/8th electric, if it's on the electric racing weekend. 15 min A mains are plenty tho, no reason to needlessly stress the batteries, ESC, or motors.
This will be my first time attending.

There are a lot of factors that affect track condition and traction. Since we are dealing with different dirt and a different building, it's hard to predict exactly what will happen with the HUGE amount of traffic that the track will see after a couple LONG days of practice. I would bet we could run slicks for at least part of the day, but if I had to guess right now the track will require at least some pin later in the day.

Oh the joys of a race that requires tire selection..... I am up for the challenge

Sweet! I'd run Super Stock 4WD (10.5) or mod.

13.5 4WD would be yawnfest on a large layout.

1/8 scale electric on the electric weekend and 2wd/4wd 10.5 spec/superstock would be awesome.
