No.. Little Dover doesn't have a website. The track itself is owned by the Hobbytown owner... so its also known as the Hobbytown track. You can actually see the track from I-4.
Here is a link with info and a map if you're interested in stopping my to check it out... theres a link on that page to another site with pictures of the track

Its PERFECT for 1/8 scale latemodels. You really need to see them run on this track.

we run them in okc on a rough dry slick, blue groove track, most people use the ofna 9.5 violater rtr cars, we use a treaded spec tire and the lexan bodies.

There an oldschool racer around here, who's made quite a few for the local guys
If you look close, you can see the front nose is pieced together. It appears a little flimsy next to the molded ones...but, I gotta tell you. I've raced that body almost every weekend since the date on this picture...its still intact. I think a little flexibility is good!!

Default 1/8 Dir Oval Body

The best body I hav seen is from C & M bodies. They are $55 plus $20 shipping. You won't have to worry about losing to any other body if your running a C & M. I switched from an A+, and won't ever go back.

Default Suspension setup

Just purchased an OFNA GTP II Dirt Oval kit and finally got it together. Needing assistance on recommended starting suspension setup (Shcok oil weights, springs, shock collar settings, droop setteings, swaybar settings, camber hole positions, toe and camber settings). I've been racing Offraod for last few years and haven't run an oval car in about 20 years.Realy looking forward to getting this thing on the local track in Clarksville, TN, as I saw several running last weekend. I attempted to e-mail OFNA, but contact site kept denying the request. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Jason Burks

TC5racer,
Thank you, I'll give them a call. I am surprised they do not have any posted setup sheets, etc.
