A New 5th scale facility is coming to Northern PA.!

Home of the former "Singers-Thumptown R/C" Located just outside of Wellsboro, PA. will be transformed into a 5th scale offroad and Oval Facility. Currently the facility consists of a large 10th/8th scale offroad track, as well as a large drivers stand, amd lap counting system, watering system, trackside electric power, and plenty of pit space.
The current track will remain in its current location, changes will be made to its layout, lanes, ect. to accomidate the larger 5th scale 2&4wheel drive trucks and buggys.
The large, high drivers stand will also remain in its currently location, serving both the offroad track, and the soon to be built oval track (spring 2012).
A large amount of dirt/clay is already piled up and waiting to be turned into an oval track, which will be built in the current pit location.

The pit area will be moved to the other side of the tracks.
Night racing will also be a part of racing at TMR Large Scale, and lighting will not be an issue with the huge light rigs.

We will welcome all makes of production 5th Scale 2&4wheel buggys, as well as 2&4wheel trucks. The recent release of the new losi 5ive T has created alot of buzz in the 5th scale market, and we will have a class for them!
Myself and the others at TMR are excited about the opportunity to bring 5th scale gas racing to northern PA. !

Further details, race schedule, and track/facility updates will come soon.
Any ?'s please feel free to contact me.

Bump this thread up.
These are all a group of real good guys..and I'm sure they will have something great built at the location...although I won't be participating in racing there..I do look forward to coming to watch the races for sure.

Is Doug running the track or did someone take over his buisness out there? I didnt go down there this year since they dont run Nitro but this is the first i heard Thumptown was closing and a 5th scale track is opening up. Hmmm Losi 5th scale might be calling my name.

Is this going to be 1/5 scale ONLY??

Misfit pres 01-30-2012 09:08 AM

Doug still owns the track but TMR is taking over running the track we will be running mainly 1/5 scale oval and off road. if enough people want to run 1/10 or 1/8 th scale on a un scheduled 1/5 scale weekend we can probably work that out.

As posted previosly, if there is still an interest to run 10th sct, that is still a possibility. but yes, the facility is going to be tuned for 5th scale racing.
Exspect loomier conditions, wider turns ect.
