Well I thought that m3 square fuzzys worked good till VR Swapped tried new pink tapers and showed me different. That was on 2wd Mod as for 1/8th I can only assume that Tapers or switches will work. There is a chance that the track will be changed for the Classic so bring a few diff sets of tires.
Any questions can be addressed to myself on here or at the number that Nate poasted.
Thanks Mike

On you first post it says it is a money back race for every class that has 10 entries So for the average guy is it going to be worth the drive all the way over there? and maybe some door prizes, plus the loud bikes in the back ground I myself run electric indoors to get away from the nitro sound you need to be honest a 4 stroke bike is not the same as a nitro car.

I think it will be worth the drive just to check out the facility and to race on a good sized dirt track indoors in the winter (which is something us in the Toronto area just do not have!). I also don't care about money or trophies for that matter. I just want to race and have a good time with friends. You guys must have too many tracks down there. We would kill to run indoor dirt!

it is every MAIN that has 10 cars in it.

ex: if there are 15 for mod buggy...only the 'A' would pay out. B would not cuz there are only 5 seated

hard4nitro, don't be such a keyboard commando/hater....One minute you're a fanboy in another thread and then a hater in another...Bi-Polar maybe?!

Any of the people that I know through R/C are in the hobby for the fun of racing/tuning and being with people that respect each other on and off the track. A cash payout, plastic bowling trophy, etc.... are not what it's all about.

No that is not corect... It is 10 per class entered for payout.

ex: if there are 11 mod buggy.. 1st, 2nd and 3rd get payouts from A Main and the winner in B Main gets a small payout. (yeah I know B main winner wins by default but the payout amount will be different to make it worth it not to sandbag)

Hey Ryan, I am working on it. I am cleaning stuff up, updating software, and other maintenace while it is down. It will be back online soon though. There will be changes though for the better though.
