LOL. Good point, nowadays you have to specify what type of surface for an off-road track

What other info can you share with us HobbyTown ABI?

Yeah he emailed me and said south Abilene for location, still working out the lease details with a late May opening date is what they are shooting for. I'd be down for either 10th or 8th scale action, just looking forward to not having to order everything or travel 3 hours for track time

I'm hoping they go with 1/8th offroad. I'm in Lubbock and a few of us would make the occasional trip to run there.
