Try looking in the back of some of the r/c magazines. Some have a directory in them.

I did a recent trip to VA. Saw an ad for an indoor track just outside of DC. Think it was in Alexandra, VA. Otherwise, never found anything but nitro to the south of DC all the way down to Richmond.

Used the info in the r/c magazines first; then, resorted to the phone books and internet.

There is a indoor carpet track in Gathersberg Marylad. About 20min outside DC. http://www.rctrack.com. It is pretty much dead right now because Nitro season has started here this week.

does the tray the pro match sells equalize like the Rayspeed and others do? I just bought some new 3300's and need to get a good tray to equalize with. I most likely will not dead short but I can't guarantee since I will mostly be running stock and maybe little mod. When I used to race the 2000's were the big thing and now I'm fairly new on the 3300's and am trying to read up on and get all the info I can for the best care. Also, for a large track like the Velodrome, what type of cells would work best? High voltage or more runtime or lowest IR? Would voltage even matter in a race like the Velodrome where you are doing 60+ MPH? Need some help. Thanks

Lower internal resistance = faster acceleration
Higher average voltage = higher top speed

Here is more info - http://www.promatchracing.com/faq.htm

Default it suks being a newbie

I've been sitting here reading this PMR thread for about 3 hours and all you ROCK! I know for sure now which batteries I'm trying out next--ProMatch; but this is a question on dischargers.
I have 2 dischargers I'm choosing between--- the Rayspeed & the Novak Smart Tray, which one will I be the happiest with 'cause I wanna have it for a long time. Also if I'm missing any I should be looking at, hook me up on their names.

Thanx folks

Thanks man! We all appreciate the compliment!! I can answer that....get a Pro Match tray. The ORIGINAL SMART TRAY!! It is actually capable of doing 1 6 cell or 2 4 cell packs.(it is 8 cell openings long) or you can use it to condition your Transmitter cells. Get one while you can...they may not be around for long. They are very time consuming to build. If you got any more questions just holla! It may tak us a little bit to get to it but someone will help...I promise.
