Default Virginia Racers

I am interested in racing nitro, on road either 1/8 or 1/10 in Virginia. I have researched the web for tracks. Results seem inconsistent. Where is the best place? What size is most popular in Virginia?

I think almost always 1/10th scale will be more popular and avialable to run. But you just gotta research , cause buying cars should truly be based on what tracks you have available to run. Which you seem to be already doing.

Kinda like me....I have areas that I might move to , but they have no on-road support and im pretty much an on-road guy.

What I found works best is calling your LHS and asking them , they usually have some people in the know for whats good and whats not in the area.

Richmond is running both. I think that in the DC area there is more 1/10. What area in VA?

I am in Richmond. I have a Revo and there does not seem to be much organized racing for that here. I was curious about the 1/8 scale activity in the Central Virginia area because that Kyosho Evolva 2005 is calling my name. I wish I could find some people messing with those cars in the area.

Wow! That was more response than I expected to receive. Now I know I have to have that car in my garage. The S.A.R.A. site was excellent. I hope to be catching up to you guys this spring.
How about if I just pave my 4 acres and we lay down a permanent track? Right.

Here's a very nice track in the country in Va I used to visit some. These racers and the owner are some of the best people you'd ever wanta meet. The track is awsome! The track is layed out on 3 different levels, you'd think it would be hard to drive or set the car up for it, but, its not. It's very fast and smooth, and over 900 ft of racing surface. It's not in Richmond but Harrisonburg, and I think thats alittle over an hr. away from Richmond, but.... It's well worth your drive, Hell, I'm 3hrs away and raced there.
