Someone has some cool pics of an RCP track setup for 1/18th scale off road in the off road section.

I could have a ball setting up tracks through my living room, dining room and kitchen....

in the last 4 years i have raced 1/10 electric sedan,1/10 spec class, 1/10 electric truck, 1/10 nitro sedan,1/10 nitro truck, monster truck,235mm onroad and this year 1/8 scale onroad. last week i did a little work on my daughter's rc18t and raced it at dirt country in cincinnati, ohio where they have an awesome indoor dirt track made specifically for 1/18 trucks. no b. s. it was the most fun i have had racing since i first started racing in 02'. it is cheap and the trucks are hard to break, most guys racing are in it to have fun not impress their sponsor. i hope 1/18 sticks around for a long time because i am pretty burnt on the carpet sedan scene right now and 1/18 is the perfect thing for me to do in the winter.i think a 1/18th forum is a great idea.

Cool I'm glad that you're having the kind of fun that I'm having!!! People really don't give 1/18th a fair shake!!!

I have a M18 running on lipo and a trinity big block, it is a lot faster than a stock 1/10th TC.

I have a Half 8 with a brushless setup, also very fast

Both of my sons have pretty much stock 18Ts, they really bash them out in the yard.

I'd like to see it as a Mini-Micro forum, not just 1/18th scale. Mini Z's are cool for racing around the house....

I mentioned your thread up there, just too lazy to link it...


How well do the 18th scales run on the RPC track?

Any word on when the Mini/Micro forum will be up? I love the mini's. They are a ton of fun.

I have 4 18MT's set up with 4 cell packs (the 6 cell packs were to fast) for the kids in the neighborhood to run. We use 4" drain pipes to make the track. Since most of the kids have never driven an RC car we pretty much stick with a 15x30 oval.

Does anyone who races have any suggestions on a minimum track size & lane widths? I'm thinking about expanding.

Thanks!
Darrel

We need to get support and then approach Futureal with the idea, if he's not already reading this....
