The offroad races listed on your calendar, are those races for the indoor track or outdoor?

Also do you have listed rules for the stock and mod 1/10th scale classes?

We only have the indoor tracks. And for now it's 10.5 or 19t buggy and truck, open 4wd and spec slash. we are laid back on getting crazy with the rules. But we do try to follow roar rules but we don't tech. practice $5 is Wednesday 5:30 to 9:30 or when the other track is racing if you have spectrum. So if we are racing onroad on Sunday you can practice on the offroad. I can't garrante heat on the other room to practice though.

Do you offer any kinda faster class then the 19t, like a 9-10 turn or something a little faster especially on that new outdoors track. Some of those jumps look pretty big to triple with a 19t haha

we had 5 this last weekend but that was an good turnout. if push comes to shove we can run you in with the buggy class. most of the time we just had 2 guys running and I'll run them.

First things first. I have taken off complete control of Thunder RC. Michael Skeen has relinquished all control of the track to me. I have a lease for another year and have some ideas for some cool things to try. I donít have the hobby shop stock right now but I am working on things to fix that.

Watch the forum http://www.nashrcracer.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=23 and the website http://thunder.rc50.com/ for more info

I have updated the calendar for the summer schedule. http://thunder.rc50.com/calendar/month.php we are racing Friday night alternating onroad and offroad through the summer to allow the local outdoor tracks to race. Plus itís cooler in the track at night in the summer.

Points series starts in May for both onroad and offroad. One week a month counts so you have to run at least once a month to stay in the points.

Last I would like to thank everybody that came out for the Onroad Season Finale results are posted here http://results.rc50.com/Thunder_RC_N...le/03-29-2009/ results for the last Winter season offroad race are here http://results.rc50.com/Thunder_RC_N...le/03-28-2009/

Thanks to everyone for your support over the year I hope to keep up and improve your levels of expectation in racing at Thunder.
