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?

What is the dimensions of the track ? Anyone know how old the carpet is and how worn ? After 5 years at TQ, the grey ozoite carpet was worn through in areas almost to the sub-floor. Thank you.

Itís in pretty good shape but at least 5 years or more. Grip is really good once the groove comes up which is pretty quick. I believe itís around 90x50...I could be off but itís right around that. The facility is massive...tons of pit space, tons of parts, bodies, tires etc on hand.
