I haven't been to this exact track but is this the same surface in Homestead, FL that the ROAR Nats were held some years ago? The one I am referring to is across from 1:1 Homestead track where NASCAR and Indy cars run. Or is it a different location entirely?

BTW, what is the role of MASAMI in the event?
Hara reside in Thailand...I wish I can live there and play toy car all the time and get paid as well....

Masami...I think he can go watch rc racing anytime anywhere....but the word is, he is planning to join the IFMAR. RC god want to be official and make his own rule....

Thanks. That surface for the Nats was the worst I've ever raced on Ran untrued 80mm Enettis out of the box and after 15 minutes, chassis was on the ground. LOL I just heard of the high tire wear at the EC and had to wonder so thanks for the clarification.

I don't think the Fort Myers track qualifies for a worldrace. The track layout must meet certain requirements. ie.. lane width and distance.


Pass you soon...

On REDRC now a story about what is discussed within the IFMAR.

The idea from Pietch to lower the maximum weight tells me he is on a far distance from the privateers. Getting 2400 gram with older cars using standard wheels is impossibe. OK, not quite impossible but very difficult what does make the gap between the pro's and privateers larger.

Great idea, 1/8 to 2400 grams and 1/10 to 1600.
I have to put 160 grams worth of ballast in my 1/10, all of this eats tires, fuel and causes extra wear on all the parts.
With a lower minimum weight designers are pushed to make the cars even more advanced.

Most of the somewhat competitive privateers switch to a next gen chassis when it's released if you ask me.
