Tonight is an open practice session, correct? I am just getting back into this world/moved to CT not long ago and I was thinking about taking a drive down to check out the facility.

Thanks for the response! I will come down tonight... Hopefully I can pick a couple guys brains on what is out there.


To be honest, today I have a vintage setup. I have not been involved in competitive racing for over 10 years. I have 2 old RC10T's. Everything is still functional. My electronics are old Novak speed controllers and Airtronics CS2P radio, etc.

I want to buy either the new Associated Buggy or Truck.

What I am having a hard time figuring out is if I will have to buy everything new. I am reading about new to me engines (brushless) and batteries, etc.

Should I assume that my old radio, batteries and engines are completely obsolete?

Maybe I can meet a couple of you guys there to begin getting reeducated on everything!

When you come down make sure say hi to all the guys. There is a pretty good group of guys down at RCHR and everyone is pretty helpful. As far as your vintage equipment goes by no means is it obsolete. We just had a huge vintage only race in September and lap times were not far off from our modern stuff. Biggest advantage of modern equipment is they are almost completely maintenance free. But bring your vintage stuff with you and give the track a test run. Then you can upgrade as you go.
See you tonight!!!
