It's a top-notch facility. Buggy, ST, SCT, all run there. Separate on & off road tracks. Lots of pit areas. I suggest bringing an extension cord or power strip. They run slicks- no pins allowed. I stopped in to practice on Wednesday. Good traction even though I didn't sauce my tires.

I plan on getting a 4wd buggy what compound of slicks do they run there? I have been out of the hobby for several years.

Mostly run Clay compound slicks as there is so much grip you end up trying to take it away! Both tracks are CRC Fast Track 2 black carpet with mega grip and makes for close fun racing!

Thanks

It's an Awesome track! Race there all the time.
No pit table needed ( they have them) make sure to bring a power strip in case you need multiple connections.
Everyone one is helpful and the hobby shop is great.

The only thing besides what Tony Posted is a pit mat or a just a towel to put down on the table you are pitting at. When you see the tables you'll understand why! LOL They are super nice!!

Not sure on the pinion but I'll ask. I have the polypro ones in stock that everyone uses.

For speedo is brand preference. Its a blinky class so just needs to have blinky mode. 13.5 are mostly Monster Max or R1 or Team Scream motors.

I have pretty much everything here and priced the same as most popular online shops. You can see my inventory at www.teameam.com
