By far the easiest, and least costly class to race

For outdoors, A Porsche 956 Porsche kit, with Tamiya Option front tires is all you need

I would recommend the RM-01X for high grip indoor tracks

Thanks to Tamiya for an exciting race series. Thanks to Tommy and the crew at E Mergent RC in Huntsville for a great TCS race this past Sunday. Everything ran smoothly and I personally had a great time. It was also good to see some racers that I hadn't seen in a few years. I hope you guys get a race next year. I will be back if you do.

see that's why I haven't bought one yet..

It would only be for 1-2 or 3 races a year and I already have a CRC xti for indoor racing and its kinda hard to justify the $$ for the RM-01x to 'try and see' for indoor racing

Middle river will be a outside race. Unless weather comes into play. Our track is a parking lot raceway. But first class all the way. We will have power for everyone. Just bring a cord to plug in. No long then 100 is needed. Tent chair and tables will be needed.
We have a lot of parts on the wall and got spec tires Friday.
We will have a club race on Saturday. Entry fee is 15 and 10. Then TCS on Sunday. No practice on Friday. Track will be up at about 9 am. Please come out to join us. If you have any questions please call shop.

This event will run rain or shine so please come prepared. But want to keep it a outside event.

MRH will have everything you need I'm sure with the exception of some shade when the race is outside.
The weather looks like Hot & Humid for the weekend at this point.
Make sure you have a plan with some easy ups
