I am not sure, as most of our 13.5 runners are at the snowbirds race.

Truck will be the largest class 25+

Check back in a couple weeks as we will be back running more cars, we have the tour racing coming at the end of Feb.

Ummmmm no! I'm never coming back to that track. No one talks to you unless you are in there "click". And when you do finally talk to someone they look down on you. If this is how the RC community is here in Nashville I want nothing to do with it!

Ive never heard of anybody ever doing that to anybody...you do have groups of "friends" , but everbody here helps others to get up and racing...and I know if Dirla thought someone was making others feel "unwanted" , he would address it....

Im not sure what happen on your visit, but let me know the next time you come, and Ill meet you at the door...maybe get you to turn left and right

Hope you come back soon

As a weekly racer at Thunder I apologize if you had a bad experience, but as with any first experience at a new facility (whether RC related or not) you sort of have to expect that it may take a time or two to get to know folks and truly get comfortable with a new surrounding. Having been to several different tracks in the area I can honestly say that I think we have one of the greatest group of racers around willing to help anyone who needs it and do whatever it takes to make new guys feel welcome.

I hope you decide to come on back down some time and if I'm at the track feel free to track me down and I'd be more than happy to help ya break the ice, just look for the truck with neon pink! lol

Rarelyseen,

Sorry that you had a bad experience, I can tell you that we all try to help each other. Not sure what happened or not, but give us another shot, your welcome to PM me or Robert on what happened and I am sure we can work it out. We hope you come back, the group of guys are all pretty cool and always willing to help new racers.

Only person i know left mad last night, was because they were told they could not run off-road vehicles on the carpet track, that is the rule at thunder for many reasons. Now I talked to someone really brief when they walked into the door, hope he didnt take that as being rude.

I,m sorry ,I wouldn,t let you run your slash 4x4 on the carpet track.You didn,t even have a body on it. Don,t know if you didn,t understand what we were talking about on here or what.Every one of those people ,your talkin about,has put money,time. and even a little blood,into the carpet track.So don,t get offended when they say no,and slam the door,and throw mud all over peoples cars on the way out.

uhhhmmm, im havin a hard time believing someone would even want to put a 4whl SCT on a perfectly manicured carpet racing surface intended for carpet cars( exp when there is a purpose built offroad track less than ten feet away from where they are) even harder to believe is that someone even has an rctech user name and doesent get why that is not acceptable. excuse me for my ignorance.

I've never had that happen at Thunder and I don't get along with anyone. This is one of the best tracks in the country with world class drivers that always help. Perhaps you were at a different track???
