Wow, that was a quick decision on a new facility. What size do you think the track will be? RCP or Carpet??

This event will definitely kick off the new space in grand fashion!

Might even be a 'guest' helper at the cash register...I heard something that it all depends on the uniform provided.

I vote for a 'French Maid' uniform with the MMR logo embroidered on it

That looks like fun...

[edit]Just looked up exactly what a Traxxas Slash is. Shoot...if you just made it a 1/10 2wd off road class with spec tires and a spec body (kinda like VTA is for touring cars, maybe?), I'd be 100% in. Schedule permitting, I'd just run my old JRX2... [edit]

I vote 4-Cells

but seriously I know that Traxxas is coming out with 2 RTR (ERevo/Slash) 1/16 kits that would make for interesting SPEC classes.

New track sounds great.

Does RCP have to much traction to run a spool on the front of a TC5 for
a VTA car?

yes the trick will be to not scrubb too much speed. Solid tends to be very aggressive but also may pull down the car in the corner. Should be very good to drive. I believe allan drove his TA with one for most of last season.
