Default UltraFast RC Raceway

UltraFast RC Raceway was conceptualized immediately after the announcement of the closure of WCRC. This concept is focused around a portable, although virtually no compromise turf racing surface. This project has gone from concept through to completion in a matter of weeks. We'll barely miss a beat, continuing the momentum from WCRC.

We were able to reach an agreement with a very, VERY cool venue to host our races. We'll be at Brauerhouse / BHouse Live in Lombard, IL. This is a 10,000 square foot concert venue, and food & drinks will be served at the pits. The first race is scheduled for May 11th. It'll be a trophy race, and all are encouraged to attend. I'll be working on a website in the next few weeks, but in the meantime, you can follow us at facebook.com/UltraFastRC

Thanks for setting up this forum. Is the SCT Class an open class? I am assuming it is since it doesn't specify.

Can you make FB public for non FB members to view. From pic I am assuming astroturf, what tires do you use for that? What motor for shortcourse? What will be in sportsman, is that a catch all say for a guy with no modern buggy but dying to run his rerelease RC10?

Short course was stated as 13.5 on Facebook, so looks like 2wd. We ran yellow compound tires on the olefin turf at windy. Mini pins, mini spikes, mini darts out back, low profile slim stagger ribs or cut staggers of front with no foams.

It is Olefin AstroTurf, and most folks will probably be running low wear small pins.

SCT will be 13.5T

Sportsman class is any 1/10 vehicle with 17.5T or slower motor. This is a class for beginners who are aspiring to run with the fast guys one day.

its good what you are doing to support the off-road scene. Its a little far (I am basically at the junction of WI, IL and lake Michigan), but if I had a buggy I would probably come out.
