Three questions:

1) What kind of tires work well at this track for Electric Trucks and 2WD electric buggies?

2) How long are the heats and mains for 1/8th scale buggy?

3) The follow-on to (2) is: Assuming the heats/main are not too long for my batteries, would there be any objection to letting an electric conversion run with the 1/8th scale buggies?

For My 2wd i use J concepts whole Shots or Taper Pins. The tracks been super soaked, so traction should be there. 1/8th scale A-main will be 10 min, B mains were going to be 5 min

Hum.. about the conversion, its still pretty new around here, no one that i know of has it, it would have to be discussed in the drivers meeting, i could mention it today and see what the response is.

hope to see you soon,

Most popular last year was 1/8th buggy, honestly it was pretty much 98% 1/8th buggy, but me being really into 10th scale, wanted to push the fact that we will be/ the closest place to run 10th scale buggies within a half an hour of every location in the lehigh valley. Closer for Western NJ and Easton Pa. So far there seems to bee a decent amount of electric talk. So hopefully there can be a nice mix of both. As far as a website, i think someone was running a tripod site, but me being a web designer, im looking to have a new site up by Friday, in which i can talk to the drivers and put updates up, such as racing events, cancellations, etc.


hope to see you soon,

tim

Default T&L Today

Trains & Lanes Crew, Chris, Tim et al;
It was great running with you guys today. I'm glad I made the trip down from north Jersey. Nice track you got there too. I like the layout, especially the whoops, the double jump and the loooooong straightaway. Sweet! I'll definitely be back in 2 weeks if you guys are gonna be running again.
