Has anyone tried out the Ride SC-36 tires used on the Minis at Nationals on black carpet? If so, how do they do? Any less tendency to traction roll than the s-grips?

This is a long over due thanks to the people I met at tamiya track. Without your help, I wouldn't be able to have the ability to compete in the gt2 class as I didn't even know my rear diff was shimmed too tight at first lol. Panda, Tom, the Tolmasoffs (special thanks to Bill) , Max. Chris , Toby..... the lists go on. It is your guy's knowledge and guidance that helped me to grow from running whatever I have on the track to seriously practice and prepare myself to race.

Is it common to not have any info of the next season at this point? I don't want to buy cars that don't have a class or cars and there is no races. is there a confirmed answer that 2019 will have a tcs series? I can start from knowing that some races will be held at least

Surprised there is not a race at Steel City Raceway in Fontana, CA. That facility is top notch and even hosting the 2019 IFMAR 8th scale worlds and a blast to race on.




PS. I see no info or photos for on road racing at Revelation Raceway. There is no list of days that you can practice or race ????

I went to the HobbyPlex site and didn't see mention of an on-road track. Is it indoors or out? Carpet or paved?
