Pit Stop Hobbies

Our racing surface is mainly clay material and the new dimensions are approximately 85' x 120'.

The driver's stand is approximately 20' long with a handicap ramp and kick-out for those racing with us that need it.

There is an onsite hobby shop, water, port-o-potty, and electric.

We will post if there will be food available for purchase.

Please bring your own table, chair, pop up canopy, extension cords, etc.

We use the newest MyLaps RC4 Decoder and Livetime scoring Software. Please be sure your personal transponder is RC4 compatible. We have rental transponders in the hobby shop for an additional cost of $5 ea for the day.

Weather was nice enough that they were able to run some practice this past weekend!

They plan on doing spring cleaning Apr 9th and 16th. Stay tuned for more info.

I'll be running a B5m (CE) for the first time at pit stop this season and I'm still trying to learn car setup. Should I stick to the stock setup for suspension or lighten it up a bit? I know I used to run a fairly soft suspension last year but that was with a B4. The stock setup worked pretty well at bumps and jumps for the B5m but I'm not sure if I should tweak it for this track. I was thinking of starting with 30/27.5 shock fluid and all green springs or is that too soft for a mid motor buggy?

Sticking with stock setup is a good starting point. The rise in temperature will cause the oil to lose viscosity so the setup is self lightening. A little more rearward weight would be the most likely change wanted.

Thanks for the tip. Yeah, I figured moving my battery to the back would also help here.

As for tires, based on recommendations from last year I've got some M4 super soft hole shots and electrons on order for the rear. Looks like ProLine doesn't make M4 ribbed tires anymore and AKA's ribs always seem to be out of stock, so I went with ProLine M3 ribs for the front.

I found some M4 proline ribs on eBay. Jconcepts makes ribs in super soft (green) compound. Duratrax also has super soft ribs. M3's would be good for when it's hot

Cool, thanks. I think I'll get those ProLine M4 ribs on eBay to keep everything the same brand-wise. I wonder why it was discontinued though.

Is there still going to be a 17.5 stock buggy class? I heard a rumor it was being phased out here but I hope not.

As far as I know there will still be a Stock buggy class. I plan to run it whenever I'm there.

Yes as far as I know it's both stock buggy and stock short course are still available classes. I think the rules state that you'll need 5 to run the class though.
