No, not really. Lots of the Detroit people go to Lou's in Canada, hobby stop west in Toledo, the Gate near Cleveland, and now that rapid competition is open in Grand Rapids, people are going to try to head there.

Yes, Rapid Competition in Grand Rapids.
Test your skills in 12th scale and sedan, there is also a good group of VTA and USGT as well.
Brand new carpet too.

I thought that Larry's would be our best hope but he is DEAD against it. Too bad because we have so many good and dedicated on road guys.

This will be my first carpet racing in over 20 years,so I'm laughing right along with you...grin...!
As a side note...they set up ramps and race buggy and sct in between the on road races,depending on how many entries...it sounds like T001,VTA,USGT and sct are the more popular classes...at least that's what I've read...
You can get a little more information by going to the Indiana and Michigan posting here on rctech...

I have had a lot of conversations with the guys over there. They will NEVER do onroad ever again. The reason why is because they've found onroad guys to not be loyal at all. They complain about everything and every rule and as soon as another track opens up, they split. THAT is what I was told and what I've experienced to be true. Larry's does not survive on track revenue alone but on purchases. You can run on the beginner track with is like onroad but a rubber surface. However, you can't race. There is a place in Monroe that has carpet for racing but it looks terrible and they are pretty bad at letting anyone know about it. I don't even think it's race carpet.
