My back straight is ~110 feet. The track is 120 feet from left side pipe to the right side pipe. The track layout are usually pretty tight so we need good rip and top end.

Here is a pick of a typical layout:

Anyone know how small you can run the comm on a Reedy Quad 19? They are .354" (9mm) when new. I think .300" is the min but I'm not sure.

I think .310 is the lowest I would go..... You can get to .300, but like any motor, there is a point where they can go, it's just really iffy lol.

for a big comm 310 is the lowest and for a standard comm its 270 any lower on both of those are you risk having one of the comm plates lifting up during a run and thats bad!

Adrian,

Is your local track Speedline Hobbies where the ROAR Nats. will be held this year? Just curious because that picture looks like some pics I've seen of the Speedline Hobbies track.

Thanks

It sure is

Speedline is a dead flat fine grain asphalt track that is ~120'x70'. The owner really knows how to put on a good show. He was involved in putting on the 1999 and 2000 Carpet Nat at Minnreg and has hosted many FSEARA state races averaging 110 entires. This will be the best Nats in as long as anyone can remember.

Here is a pic of the layout at the 1st FSEARA race of this year. It was a more open layout than usual but the fish eye lens makes it look more open than it was.

Adrian,

I thought so! Does anyone run Take-Off CS-27 tires at Speedline? Just wondering how these tires work on a fine grain asphalt track like that.

Thanks

the cs-27 tire is the handout for the state series in Fla. Those tires work really good at Speedline. Thats pretty much all anyone runs for tires in Florida.

Adrian I can't find any info on the Nats other than dates. What are the main classes and do they have masters classes there? Much as I hate to admit it I am old enough.

Rod, the classes last year at the Nats. were: Stock TC, 1/12 Mod., Brushless, Mod. TC, 19-Turn, and Masters. So there's a good chance Masters will be there again this year.
