I will believe it when I see the announcement. The thing is, it was held in bangkok last year already. But that venue makes it easy, for me at least.

Too bad if you ask me. Can't think of a reason why you ever would want to run a nitro WC on a indoor track!?.

I hope they have plenty of ventilation. Imagine the smoke with 10 or more cars racing around all day.

So happy to here it's confirmed at Huge. I've raced nitro indoors before it's absolutely brilliant plus we can't be affected by any rain. Can't wait!

Why not the track is going to be the same for everyone regardless

Great to see an announcement has been made, no mention of any pre-WC event though.

Would have thought the noise and gases/ventilation would be an issue. I have seen a video of one gas car going around Huge R/C and you can hear the noise bouncing back off the roof. Ear plugs for the win

Rock n roll!! Couple of questions

Who will be the tire manufacturer ?

Is there tire truing involved or controlled tru?

I hope its controlled tru but untried front tires are just too big unlike 8th scale.

More details of the race please.

According to RedRC, The final event is scheduled to be run from the 7th to the 15th of November. No news of pre-worlds. Maybe watch the Huge RC facebook page for updates? After TITC...

If they are running controlled tires, it will be one manufacturer, 1 type of shore hardness and a trued diameter.

it will be handed out to you just before you start your runs.
