order an edition of rc car. They have everything you want except fees but I'm sure you could call up the track and they would probably tell you.

KINGZJ - Pays to be a Student. Student fee for the weekend is $12 if i remember right. I feel it is well worth it though, to race at such a nice place. Heck, I drive an hour to get there..

Jesse....I think the guys that race there alot should still pay the same amount b/c if you didnt then thats even more money that he is loosing and like you said it isnt cheap to run a place as fine as his. If you think that an extra 5 bucks is too much to race your 800 dollar TOY car then your a cheap ass mo fo.....its five bucks dude. Hell I would pay 20 or 25 bucks even to race at Scotties as long as it kept his doors open and I had a nice place to race.

Kevin, I am not complaining I just said I felt the the cost to race was a little high thats all. You don't see me boycotting the place do you I am their all the time. During the winter I am averaging about $100 a month just in entry fees. Thats allot of money just to race.

Reguardless if you are or your are not complaning in the grand scheme of things the 15 dollar race fee is not that much considering how much you have invested in all your toys and the service that Trackside or any other track offers you the racer. Im not banging on you about this but it seems that if you really sit back and look at it, it is really a fair price to pay to play with 1000 dollar toys. I dont know

I have to chime in here, I dont think Jesse should get bashed for his honesty, 108 dollars a month is a HELL of a lot of money to spend on race fee's especially after spending the 1000's of dollars on the toy cars. 108 is what it costs to race twice a week for a month and that does not include practice fee's if you can still afford to do that. I know what your next comments are going to be so please spare them. Your right nobody is making anyone go and pay those fee's, I think Jesse may have brought up the cost because on average all of the other posts about race fee's on this topic have been about five dollars cheaper.

You right it is 5 dollars, times 4 =20 times 12 =240 That 5 just turned into 240 dollars. Im not bashing the tracks that charge the prices, and if it sounds like I am bashing then I apoligize.

Ok do you keep track of how many pairs of brushes you go through or how many sets of tires or other parts that you break are?....you should if this 5 bucks is a big deal or over a year its a big deal. I dont feel that the 5 bucks is a big deal when you really get down to it. You see it your way and I see it my way.
