Default 5th scale racing alive in Texas?

Is there any 5th scale offroad racing left in Texas? I know RCRCNT does some on road. Any idea what they run? Are they FGs? I have some exp with FGs and I dislike the platform. Maybe they have improved since then. Is there any hope for offroad? Losi/MCD?

YUP! We just raced this last weekend out at RCRCNT for the SWSR and then the week before that we had a 1/5 club/ test and tune race. We run the FG Sportline spec and since we have been running for the last few years, have found out the weak points and more importantly how to get them set up to handle (reasonably) well. Biggest thing is getting the right tires for the track. Sportline was our second largest class this weekend with 8-9 cars. Check out Texas 5 on facebook for some video of the last race.

We are starting up an STC class (2wd, 23cc, higher end cars) but haven't started running it regularly yet as we get the cars sorted out.

Offroad, hit and miss. If guys are running it regularly in the DFW,t hey are keeping it quiet. I head there was going to be a track down south of dallas but haven't heard much past that. I think they run offroad up in OK but not sure where.
