Thumbs up 2017 International Indoor Championships (iic) Las Vegas October 1-6

It is that time of the year to start making plans for our annual trip to Las Vegas for the always exciting International Indoor Championships! We are happy to announce the date for the 2017 edition will be October 1-6 at the Westgate Hotel and Casino.

Here is the schedule for this years International Indoor Championships:

Sunday October 1st, Registration and Drivers meeting buffet dinner
Monday Octer 2nd, Practice
Tuesday Octer 3rd, Practice
Wednesday October 4th, Qualifying
Thursday Octer 5th, Qualifying
Friday October 6th, Mains

I also have some very big news to our Off-Road friends who have always wanted a reason to go to Vegas for a race. We are very happy to announce that after many years of trying to put all the pieces together, the International Off-Road Carpet Championships will be held October 7-12 at the Westgate Hotel and Casino.

Here is the schedule for the International Off-Road Carpet Championships:

Never been, Most important thing for me is the pool area, looks nice in the pictures though, any opinions on how the hotel and pool was?
I will see if I can get this information for you. It might be posted on FB, not sure.

At least in the US you must hand carry your lipos. I always hand carry my cars, batteries and radio. Everything else is checked.

Always carry on batteries. I've never had a problem with the cars. They always care more about the transmitter cause it looks like a gun.

Yeah, the only rule to lithium batteries is they have to be carried on so they stay in a pressurized cabin. Everything else you own can be checked.
