What do I need?

  • An RC car or truck
  • MyLaps transponder Any transponder we carry will work. These transponders work at nearly all the other tracks in the USA.
  • Signed waiver on file. These are available in the store.
  • Table, chair, and a DC charger. Power and pit space is limited. Bring a folding table and chair.
  • Positive attitude Don't be the one who makes us create a rule. We're all here to have fun, meet with old friends, and make some new friends.

Basic rules:

Our rules mirror R.O.A.R. regulations.  Here are some important highlights:

Batteries:

LiPo batteries need to be treated safely.  Excessive charge rates and over-voltage charging are not safe.  Fireproof charging containers are a big part of safe operation.  LiPo batteries should be “hard case”, and mounted securely in your model.

1:10 scale classes are restricted to 7 cell NiMh or 2 cell LiPo

1:8 scale classes may not use more than 4 LiPo cell packs.

Classes:

Sorry, no nitro.

We would like to have at least five vehicles to run a class.  Participation will dictate how classes are divided by motor size. We can add or remove classes as needed.

Oval:
  • Tamiya racing semi
  • 2wd SCT Late models
  • 4wd SCT Late model
  • Street stock
  • Sportsman class
  • Sprints
  • Mudboss
Off-road:
  • 1:10 Four Wheel Drive Buggy
  • 1:8 E-Buggy
  • 1:8 E-Truggy
  • 1:10 Two Wheel Drive Short Course
  • 1:10 Four Wheel Drive Short Course
  • Novice/beginner

If your electric car doesn't fit into one of these classes, we will not turn you away from racing.  We’ll work to find a “best match” class to run in.
