Default Large Clay Oval opening in Wilmington, NC

This will be a purpose built 325' centerline with 16' wide slightly banked lanes. The drivers stand is 24' long by 14' high. We have an AMBrc lap counting system. Our drivers stand houses the announcers booth with a more than adequate PA system(covers track and pit areas loud and clear). We have a fully stocked hobby shop on site. Restaurants in walking distance and ample pit & parking space.

I don't know what classes this track plans to run but dirt oval generally uses 1/10th cars by Custom Works, BMS and others. They are 2wd using a lot of AE RC10GT parts (transmission, gears, tank, etc.) with sprint, EDM or late model bodies. 1/8th 4wd late models based on 1/8th buggies is also a growing class.

325' centerline is big for 1/10 edm/LM/sprint. The will probbally mostly run 1/8 buggy LM's. I cant imagine what gearing to use on that track for a 1/10 EDM

It could work. Wouldn't need as much gear as you think. But then I see you are at Lake Ariel so I guess you are used to tiny tracks
