Default 2015 Jconcepts 1:8 Spring Nationals, May 22-24,

A Memorial Day weekend tradition, the 6th annual Jconcepts 1:8 Spring Nationals will be at the HobbyTown USA Hobbyplex in Omaha, NE May 22 - 24.

Our 15,000 square foot building was designed from the ground up to be a RC racetrack. 16 large garage doors allow for plenty of ventilation while maintaining an outside like feel. At the Plex it's like racing outside with a roof. No more rainouts!

Classes:

Sportsman 1:8 Nitro Buggy
Sportsman 1:8 Nitro Truggy
Expert 1:8 Nitro Buggy
Expert 1:8 Nitro Truggy
Electric 1:8 Buggy
Pro-4 SCT

Here are some videos of 1:8 scale racing at the plex:

It will depend on the weather (cool, humid, hot, rainy ect) and how the track reacts to it. But bring an array of indoor type tires in different compounds (Clay, SS, S) also bring some of your smaller pin tires too just in case. Every year it seems a different pattern works better than the previous.
