Default 20 - 10.5 Brushless OVAL cars...at ONCE - WOW

Are YOU brave enough to try 20 OVAL Cars on a HIGH BANKED Bicycle Velodrome running NOVAK 10.5 Brushless Motors at roughly 60 MPH?

Check out the short video from last weekends SWTour **Allstar Shootout** at the Encino Velodrome.

ALLSTAR Race from Encino Velo on YOUTUBE

Thanks to Brandon Patti for taping his father..up until the CRASH~

Hey thanks for the link. That was some serious oval racing.
Never could get into oval but that was a cool vid.

Thats a unique event on a track like that isn't it.?

Or is that a common track.?

I hold 5 races a year on this track...the 20 car format is a SPECIAL event we put together this year...to add a little excitement.

They also hold several races in INDY on the Major Taylor Velodrome...it's just something a little different~

we do about a 2/3rds oval w/ a infield roadcourse for our LOCAL racing program with touring cars.

We've even run our OVAL cars on that type of track too, and it's a blast (NOT the velodrome cars though..they are TOO aerodynamic and have too little downforce to run SLOW)

We actually schedule about 5 races a year there.

Our events calendar is on our web site ( www.southwesttour.com ) and the next time we'll be at the Velodrome will be in October on the 13th I believe...and back again December 8th.

Here is another video from last weekend...

This one, from Brett Patti I believe captured the NOVAK 10.5 class "A" main event on Saturday, which is a 10 car POINTS race, and the winner of this race got to transfer into our **ALLSTAR SHOOTOUT** on Sunday.

This IS a full 5 minute race video.

MORE VIDEO from the ENCINO VELODROME

Cool... You could get a full field of 43 cars on there, that'd be a sight to see...

I have the Kissena velodrome not to far from me but they won't let you run RC's on it...

Is there any way to download these videos? I only have a dialup connection and it is just not practical to stream a video -- it just shows 5 second spurts with 30 second gaps in between...

Tom,

The way YOUTUBE streams things I'm not sure if it can be separated or not..it looks like it's in FLASH.

...not JUST 10.5's, but 10.5's on 4 cell packs

Here's photos of my sons car from that weekend. His is the car that passed the 2 cars the lap before the big crash in the short video.









a full shot, a wing shot, a battery placement shot...and a gearing shot...

Nothing special - just a Associated RC10L3 Oval car with a SHOCKED (DNA) Front End.

They are flash videos... You'll need a flash player and a way to download them... If you have firefox there's an extension to download them with...
