Hi Dustin,

Yes the track is open for practice Friday night starting at 5:00pm until the last person leaves (most of the time they close the doors around 2:00am).

So only the offroad event requires a roar membership?

That is correct. The oval race is going to be run on a different weekend now, and will not run ROAR rules.

I dont own an oval R/C so I am not sure what tires to go with for that.
I was just up there sat 1-10 and there is TONS of traction!! For 2wd buggy I tried hole shots,inside jobs, and bar codes.ALL of them were dialed! I did run some pink tapers on front and they were toast by the end of the day,but that was running off road and oval both so by the end of the day they had well over an hour of run time on them.

I ended up going with blue bar codes on rear and pink tapers on front for both off road and oval (sprint/slider).

it is ROAR rules for off road, so a 10.5 is mod. 13.5 is super stock.

Correct. ROAR rules apply; we are also running the 6 minute qualifying and mains as ROAR rules dictate.

Traction is definately NOT a problem. We have been working on a nice mix of sweeping the dust off the track and a super light mist of water between rounds. Works very nice and we end up with great traction.

What is the racing turnout like on Wednesday nights? I'm in Cadillac and I'd like to make the drive down there and run some laps.

What are the big classes? (or the best night to come).

And what tires are good. I've seen people mention Holeshots... M3? anything else working?

Also (yeah, I know, I'm question crazy), but is there a good ballpark setup for Losi's there?

Thanks!

Weather is the only factor when it comes to turn out. Wednesday nights is a good night if you want to run with the fast guys. Saturdays is more relaxed most of the time. Most Wednesdays you can run Slash, Stock Truck, Mod Truck, Mod Buggy or 4WD buggy.

Tires: Holeshot M3, Panther Switch 2.0 Clay, Barcodes are the most popular choices.

If its the Losi XXX T-CR, go with the stock setup it seems to work very well. Make sure you can turn! Get as much throw as you can out of it, there are a few very sharp corners. Also, I have had some sucess with running 20w oil in the rear and 30w in the front shocks. Other than that, I wouldnt get to crazy, the stock setup works pretty well. Dont worry about the questions, ask away!

Cool, thanks for the answers! It is a XXTCR, so I won't change anything.

Any suggestions for a buggy (XXXCR) setup (I'm assuming tires are similar)?

Also, is there ever a 13.5/10.5 Super-stock ("19T" or whatever) class run? If not, what is the typical mod motor out there?

Thanks again!

I run a B4 so I wont be much help on the XXXCR setups, sorry. Most guys in the buggy class run holeshots or barcodes on the rear and a tire like Panther Bobcat Super Soft Wides on the front. 13.5 is Super Stock, 10.5 is mod now, ROAR rules.

There is a large 13.5 super stock truck class every Wednesday. The mod truck class is smaller (about half the size of super stock). For 2WD buggy its all mod, no super stock class for them at all.

I run a 10.5 brushless in my truck and buggy for the mod classes. The fastest motor I know of that is run in mod is a 7.5 but you need to gear that down to make the power usable on the track.

What time do you guys typically get done on a Wednesday night and is there any practice before the racing starts?

Thanks!
