This is not a ROAR race.

There will be no tech.

1/10TH: Nitro 12 size 3 port engine, sedan body, 75cc tank, 200mm chassis, full paint job, these are the main requirements for this class.

1/10TH: Electric motor, sedan body,190 chassis, 6 cells or lipo batteries, full paint job, as this class grows so will the different class, Examples (Stock, Modify) (Expert, Amateur) also in the future we would like to run tripple A mains for this class.

1/8TH: 21 size engine, Lola wedge body, 1/8TH chassis, full paint job.


DM1: Class and rules pending.

220mm: Class and rules pending.

The new lay out seems to work for all classes with the exception of the 1/10TH electric, seems that the straight away is a little to long for them, I talked to the track owner he informed me that the track will be shorten for the electric heats.

Rubber tires are required for DM1 and 1/10TH electric.

In the future it would be cool to see both classes race on foam.

Hopefully the track will be fully painted for this race, the rain has been slowing down the process.

Ok, I'll try to come up to do some tire testing so I can see what works best up there, this sounds like a pretty fun race!

EP Guys - When do you go up to race/practice?

Thanks, Robbie.

And I'm working on getting Billy B to come down, he said he's working on it.

Oh ya, How big is the track??

Randy, Mike Molina said they used Sorex or RP's.

If I were to guess I would say 100X250 being that the track is new it hasn't been measured yet, I'll get back with you with the overall true measurements.
