All over the world people are running electrics when it is to cold outside. I drive 1/18 competitions.

I was going to say that, beat me to it.

I'm running 1/12th.

There have been the occasional indoor asphalt tracks but they are a lot of work. Keeping the traction good and consistent is very tough.

I think more racing goes on in the winter here than in the summer. As fun as it is, not a lot of guys want to be outside all day in 104 degrees. Texas summers can be unpleasant.
