Less then 15% of the model hobby world races their vehicles. If you want to make money off of racers then offer dirt cheap ways to enter the hobby. Once people are into the hobby they will keep coming back for that fuel, tires, broken parts, bearings, & all the other items they need to keep their cars maintained. When you get those 40 people to start showing up for race night because you helped them to make good decisions on an initial investment so they aren't frustrated w/ their purchase. You will make that $15 off a race entry, then you will make that $5 in tires & spares bump up off these people as well. When you bring in that $20*40people income once a week that should be enough to pay your bills & loan( about $3200 a week). Then, when you have people who aren't in the know looking for a basher you can make your profit off of the rtrs since they probly won't break alot of parts. Also, the faster the cars are going the wider the onlookers eyes get & the thinner the racers wallet gets.
