It saves me 2 hours each way... Lol. It is a awesome facility though. I'm hoping to get out to the outdoor track in the next few weeks.

I'm looking forward to meeting a few folks in person. ;)

They had the TLR cup race a week or so ago. The track looked so fun. The indoor dirt was fun too when I went. I hope too get my SSC10 track tested very soon.

I guess I'll need to figure if the SSC10 would be allowed. ReRe too. Or I'll have to build one from the Rubbermaid-o-RC10 stuff.

So w/ respect to after market chassis for an RC10... are any allowed? Like say a CompositeCraft from back in the day?

It used to be if you could buy it back in 1994 you can use it. Not sure if that has changed.

I misspoke in regards to the ssc10 chassis. I thought it was a mid motor setup.

Any chassis is fine but mid motor setup are not. Even vintage cars like the Tekin. Though Erich runs an electric converted gt in the buggy class so idk how that works.....

Bummer that it can't be outdoors.

Maybe we should get some RC10Talk T-shirts?
