I'm pretty excited about this new track!!! It should be ready very soon. I think while it's sad one track is closing, another is opening right up thanks to the great group of racers we have in this area. I think it is gearing up to be a great racing season in the Cincy area with a great new track, and a renewed interest from many coming back to the rug this winter.

Get a mini cooper and have some fun. Pulfer and I even talked about getting one to get the class going to help promote the new racers and provide an outlet for a lower cost option of racing. 12th scales are another good option.

I was hoping there would be a spec class. I sold my truer and lathe when Ultra closed. Those coopers are pretty tough aren't they?

Oh yeah. Do it up with a box stock car, spec motor and battery, and go racing. I think it is a fun and less expensive alternative.

UPDATE.

I just got word that there will be a rubber tire, brushless touring class as well. Either the 13.5's or 10.5's (still need to decide), any rubber tire, lipo or nimh optional.

This is going to be an awesome place. I hope many of you can make it out.

I'm down with the mini coopers! I'm back baby and stronger than ever!!!
It's funny how things work out, I loved Ultra and had some awesome times there, I hope we can get back to the fun we used to have and get some of the guys back into racing that quit when Ultra closed.

that would be me. right now the only thing i have is a rc18. I would love to get a tc-5 or a 12th scale but I have to go with what i can afford.I need to talk to somebody I owe some money to before I do anything.I think it will be fun once we get started.

I think what would really be awesome would be running some of the Xray M18's. The Mini Cooper RTR's are like $180 and the Xray M18 RTR's are like $199. I'm sure the little Xray sedan is way funner than the mini coopers. We would just have to find out if guys want to run them or not and go from there. If we got a class going I'm sure John wouldn't mind stocking the spare parts at the shop.

I hear the carpet and barrier system arrived yesterday. They have purchased the new CRC square pvc system, similar to Cleveland and Josh's. This place is going to be insane. Try to make it down or or make it up for you southerners.

Mini Coopers
Touring rubber 13.5/27t or 10.5/19t
Touring stock foam
Touring 19 turn foam
Touring modified foam
12th scale stock
12th scale 19 turn
12th scale modified

Lipos are allowed.
