Come on HarKonnenD - Bring the R40 and the MRX4... BUT, I guarantee that you won't be able to put down the MRX-4 after going 65 - 70MPH down that back straight and then hooking the sweeper while never letting off the throttle...

They also have monthly club races along with hosting many of the SouthWest Series Championship races.... check out the race events on www.RCRCNT.com ..

Yeah, but still being under the roof of mom she's terrified of me even driving to brooklyn by myself. When I did and she found out, she then think's of us going to visit Grandma. After the tolls and the crazy drivers I said heck no! Either way I will go one day or another. My dream of traveling WILL come true!!!

Jag-Yeah I'm really itching to run the 8th scale as it's way different that driving sedan. I'll be at bridgeports track practicing when the weather gets nice again.

Traveling to RCRCNT Raceway is a breeze... Just fly into DFW and rent a car, and the track is about 20 miles south all on major roads... Easy to find, lots of cheap motels and geat food within 5 miles of the track... I have found some great summer air fares in and out of DFW so check into it for the "Biggie".. You may be suprised. A buddy of mine is flying into DFW from Amsterdam tomorrow for under $500 RT... Way cheaper and easier than driving...

Yeah considering I live in Newyork. LMAO! Though it'd be great to drive all the way back home than having to wait for a flight and or go on flight with your rc gear.

Yeah you've got a point there. I still don't know how guys from brooklyn say they 'drove' to Toledo, Ohio for that Great lakes challenge last year. That's a heck of a drive.

Fellas,

With the Biggie providing covered pit areas (at an additional cost with the entry fee), there really is no need to drive unless you want to (and have the convenience of your own wheels instead of cheap rent-a-wheels). I have driven from Binghamton, NY to Dallas, TX back in 2000 and it is an almost 24 hours straight drive. To save yourself the hassle and wear on you ride, catch a cheap flight and come and enjoy the Texas sun (and racing too! ).

I have not been there, but heard about it. It might be smoother and traction is more consistent, you don't hear anyone say there is alot of traction, just consistent.

From what i saw on the Video, I have never seen cars that loose on a prepped track before. Tell me that is not normal. They are slidding around every corner. Or were those the Drift cars? LOL

I would suggest you re-view the video and pay strict attention to the cars turning into the sweeper at the end of the straight away. They are not lifting!! Ask anyone who drove the track last year and most all of them will tell you had to lift completely or lift a little and nurse the car thru the sweeper. Granted, in some of the shots, the cars are moving out some. But keep in mind on the day of the video shoot, we only had maybe 15-20 cars present. Takes more than a days worth of driving for 20 cars to lay enough rubber to bring traction up. With 80-100 cars present and a open practice and one round of qualifying, trust me the traction comes up nicely.
