Here is there web site. http://www.rams-rc.com/

They have a good organized club with a huge track. 1/8 and 1/10 run twice a month and 1/5 runs i believe once per month. Good racing and helpful people out there.

There is 1/10 touring at RCCAR (www.rccar.com) on the third sundays of the months. Good nitro and electric racing and helpful people too.

its a 200mm car so you probably run outlaw class out there, but i think you would need to change the engine from the .21 to a .15 or .12 5 port or 7 port. the .21 engines are used only in 1/8 scale racing. go to there website and check the membership link. you will find the car and engine rules there on page 2.

at the rccar club you would need a 3 port .12 size engine.

The car doesn't fit in a particular class. You might be able to run in the "sportsman" open class. But, we'll have to discuss the issue at the drivers meeting on Sunday - this is a points weekend. The final decision will need to be a "club" vote. So, come by (Sunday) and let's discuss.

Red face Re Racing

Many years ago (10 Plus), I remember going to Rams in the South Bay. I remember seeing 1/8 scale onroad cars running and and I asked about racing. Is this still true regarding Nitro.

First of all, I don't have a problem with this if this still the rule.

1. new comers can not run 1/8th scale. This is due to the expense of the cars and no one wants to have to pay for a stupid mistake so, new comers need to start with either 1/10th scale electric.

2. After proving that you can drive, you can move into the 1/10th scale Nitro class. This is to prove you can setup your car/engine and drive.

3. Now, for th big boy toys, you are allowed to race 1/8th scale in a trial type class. Again, to make sure you can drive and not be a danger to other drivers and yourself.

Is this possibly true?

Thanks

Not sure why you brought up an 8 year old thread. RAMS doesn't even run 1/10 or 1/8 nitro any more. Its been dead for a long time! I think they only run 1/5th now.

Dr evil, hey that would b a good set of rules for Any club, and i hate to b the bringer of bad news, but R.A.M.S is gone my friend.........its hard to run 1/8 anywhere besides L.A, actually you will see what's left of mission park racing in L.A ! Or you can snatch up a 1/10 n come out to norcal or swr ! Good racing at both, cool bunch of guys n hopefully oneday (girls!) Lol the speed of todays 1/10 is like 1/8th was back then.....plenty fast

Talking Gone?????

This is what I get for sleeping under a rock..

Gone Huh. The website is still up. http://www.rams-rc.com/

The schedule is as of This year and a point series race is listed.


Is this a recent development??

Thanks

Evil

BTW - I did notice no mention of 1/8 scale racing. Could be because I don't know what the classes are called for 1/8th scale onroad.

O.K. I went on youtube and found a race (autocross at RAMS) that looks like it's being held at a place that use to be called Castle Hobbies. I use to race 1/10th onroad there with Joel Johnson back in the late 90s. Wow. What memories.

RAMS races 1/5th scale 2-stroke gas cars. There is no more nitro

The site is now Mission College in Santa Clara. The three classes raced are STC/GT (sedan/GT cars), Formula 1 & Autocross (HPI Baja)
