I have a few questions about Wolcott Hobby: Is there a Hobby shop, and do they have ESC, motors, wings, wheels, tires and so on?
Cheers

When I posted our NIX91 cars on facebook yesterday, I was asked if we were going. If only I had no obligations and a fatter wallet.

Would love to have you guys out here! Rod are you on PS4 anymore?

Tomas the traction was a little lower last year because the track was completed the day before the race started. The owner treated the dirt over the winter and traction went up substantially and he is planning on building the track at least a week before to let it set in this year.
