Hey Perry, great questions.

TQ Wire has the best male bullet connectors. We have some available currently at 180. I know Ralph is planning to attend Stock Wars as well, so I am sure he will bring some along for the track to sell. Yup, females come pre-installed on the motor so the only thing anyone needs to do is attach the male bullets to their speed control leads.

Thanks!

Something NEW for 2018!

We will have three Overall Champions this year! Similar to how Snowbirds does the Overall Road, and Overall Oval champion. We will combine the following 6 classes to crown 3 Overall Champs:
  • Pro TC and Pro 1/12 - Overall Pro Champion
  • Open TC and Open 1/12 - Overall Open Champion
  • USGT and F1 - Overall Scale Champion

Drivers that compete in any of the three combinations listed above have a chance to win that specific Overall Title. The finishing positions from both classes will be added together, and the driver with the best (lowest) overall position will be crowned Overall Champ for that class group!

Thanks to Race Rewards for working with us to make this possible!

1/12 Pro & Open Class Updates!

Following the successful NYGP and Halloween Classic, we will use the proven 72T spur, 56T pinion combination for both classes.

Looks like the biggest traveler for the race so far is Bill Sydor and Dustin Layne (of Layne Spec) coming all the way from Kansas City!!

Default Hotels?

Is there any news to report regarding a potential group rate arrangement at one of the nearby hotels?
