Which direction will the races be run? Clockwise or counterclockwise?

sorry for any confusion, but YES Apex is a fully stocked hobby shop. For some reason RCsignups will not show this...but please understand we have a very nice hobbyshop, with plenty of parts and items for racers....

Also for anyone wanting to come the Ramada that is about 1mile away will give you 15% off their lowest rate if you mention Apex Raceway and hobbies. Thats good for anytime you come here also.

Dont forget guys the Apex Challenge is next weekend. Please get signed up or if you dont have an account , pm me and Ill add you. here is the post from track owner Eric Anderson from RCtech... Anyone wanting some good track time we will have a Snowbirds warm up race on 1/20 with a lot of people coming in from out of town. Including Sam Issacs and several other top drivers. Ramada has a room rate of around 60.00 for that weekend.

If anyone is driving down to the Snowbirds this year we will be open all weekend for practice and I know Joe Trandell, Keven Hebert, Will Jossens and some other guys are coming in for the weekend then driving on down to FL for the Birds. We are on the way down if you’re driving to FL this year.

Also the official warmup race for the ROAR Nats is Feb 17-18. Lots of guys (Sam, Art Scrimo, Klingforth’s, Lyon’s, etc) already making reservations to come in for that weekend as well. It should be a pretty big crowd getting their prep for the nats in order.

Is it looking like a 1 day or 2 day event at this point? Not going to Snowbirds but thinking of coming down anyway.

What is motor rule for 21.5 TC?

I'm not asking for anyone's opinion. I'm asking if there is a rule for 21.5 motors. Sometimes there is a hand-out or whatever at races for this class.
