Is this more of an 8th scale track or 10th scale? I have both but was wondering if there would be enough for 8th scale e-buggy. I prefer to run that. I really hope I can make it!

Awesome Tony, I'll be there! E-Buggy in hand! Cant wait. On a side note I searched the address above and it changed to:


850 Agricola Rd
Bartow Fl 33830

Is this right? I've never been there before.


Never mind saw the address on the flyer and printed it.

Robert, yes that address will work too. I just updated the TNR FB page with both addresses (850 Co Rd & 850 Agricola Rd).

Hi everyone. We will do our best to try and keep everyone up-to-date on this forum, but the best place to receive updates and interact is our FB Page (can't post links as I don't have enough posts yet on this forum).

Thank you so much to Michael Ortiz and Tony Rivas for hosting yesterday's Fundraising Race. The club is now a mix of some old and new members. Sideshow is gone. The club is still in its 'forming' phase, so please bear with us as we normalize and push forward.

The race was a spectacular event with 47 entries and one heck of a good time. Thank you to everyone who came out to have fun and support TNR.

Check out the FB Page for photos from yesterday's race.

In reading through the thread, I noted the tug and pull of 1/10th scale vs. 1/8th scale. TNR has a specific personality in that its typically more technical with larger jumps. We will continue to look into how to right-size TNR to be 1/10th scale friendly while not changing its signature features in the next track design, which we hope will be soon.

Yesterday was fun even with not doing as well as I had hoped . The rust definitely showed. I will be back for the next club race for sure! Btw for the rc'ers who didn't show up there were 47 entries. Nice and laid back schedule. I also liked that there were only 3 classes.
Nitro Buggy - Ebuggy - Truggy.. not Pro and Sportsman...etc

I was wondering the turnout for 1/10 scale vehicles as I didnít see any pics in the Facebook page. I guess if I was able to show up as planned, I wouldíve been the only 1/10 scale driver.

Just wondering when your club races are held. I remember when Saturday nights at Bartow were crowded!
Hope you start later than 10:00 AM for us out-of-towners!
