I used to have a Tamiya Frog and a friend and I would just find a place around town and race. What type of buggy do most people use at the track. I am getting close to starting back up again.

Gotta bump this for the indoor seasons ramping up.

There is a new layout on the carpet for the Howler on the 27th of this month, and the new dirt layout will be going down next Tuesday. RCE is adding more clay to the mixture and tilling it into the current dirt. We are hoping that this raises the grip level even more.

Popular classes in the indoor track are: mod truck, mod 4wd, stock 2wd, and sportsman. Other classes will be run with 4 or more entries.

Carpet has not stopped running, even through the summer. So classes are going strong. Sedan stock, 12th stock, and Speed Spec sedan (rules: 4 cell, silver can pan chassis). We are looking to get 19 turn sedan up and running with a lot of interest in this class.

Also, starting on Friday nights, on the carpet will be mini/carpet racing, as just announced on RCE's forum.

Friday Nights starting November 2nd we will be starting back up the Indoor Mini Carpet racing with a twist. As with last year we will be racing the 1/18th scale cars Mini T's, ASC 18t's, Mini Lst's, as well as the ASC 18R's. The twist, is this year we will also be adding to the racing with 1/10th Touring and 1/12th Scale along with the other available classes from Tuesday nights. There are a ton of mini's out there are these guys are itching to race em.

This is a sort of Old School, all ages, run what you brung kind of night. I don't mean we're going to have Sedans running over Mini-T's or Mini Lst's using 1/12th Scales as jumps. More of a fun, pressure free atmosphere, with racing thrown in. We'll separate the classes for sure, but will allow for beginners and youngsters to get in the mix, running what they have. 1/18th Scale will be with 1/18th Scale and 1/10th Scale will be with 1/10th scale, but if you want to run a Tamiya Mini against a Speed Spec or you have a Mini-T and want to race against the On Road 1/18th Scales be my guest.

I'm not saying this is going to be a free for all with people just jumping classes on a whim, there are rules, but they may be loosely followed to allow everybody a chance to race what they have. With that in mind this is racing on the carpet and will require carpet friendly tires. Foam tires are preferred, but we will allow "On Road" rubber tires or slicks.
It sounds like fun!

I thought I'd bump this up to the top a little.

The outdoor dirt track is getting a major overhaul. In spite of that there were 60 entries in 95 deg. weather for this past weekend's race.

Tuesday night carpet racing is at it's strongest and getting better each week. Right now we are in the midst of a 15 week points series. Week 5 is tonight. There are 5 throw-outs, so it's not too late to get in on the action. $2 per person per night for the points series fee added to the standard race fee. Proceeds go to the awards banquet. Winners get chassis donated by Speed Merchant. Classes in the points series; 13.5 foam sedan, Speed Spec 10th pan w/silver cans & 4 cells, and 17.5 12th scale.

Thursday indoor dirt is going strong as ever. Always someone to race with.

With Slotty-k at the mic, races go smooth and are always entertaining to listen to.

Race fees are $12, practice fees are $7/day. Fridays are free practice all summer. Bring your personal transponder to get lap times while you practice. All scoring is done via RC Scoring Pro.

Yo! Best thing about this place is the people. You can't go wrong here for practice, racing, wrenching, advice for all skill levels. Indoor or out, nitro or electric, carpet or dirt.

All skill levels and interests are always welcomed.

What classes and restrictions for each class. I am new to the area and I have been out of the hobby for about 6 years now. Finally I live next to a great place so I want to get back into it, but I don't want to buy the wrong equipment.

I am going to run 1/10th buggy 2wd, 4wd, stadium truck and short course. And some carpet. So any info on motor restrictions and tire sauce/compound. Anything else I might be for getting. I'll write it all down so I don't have to ask again.

Thanks guys...

Schuyler from NH
