Track Racing

Members only can use the track. You must be a flying club member. We allow each member to bring one guest per day.

John and Mark have reconfigured the track in January 2020 and Ben and Brad helped pick up rocks to get the track running again.

We have found that running the sprinklers for 20 minutes prior to racing tightens the track up and we see at lot less spin outs. There is very negligible mud thrown up and very little dirt in the cars.

Racing happens whenever two members get together and decide to spin dirt up.

This the second most fun ever for competitors AND spectators! (After pylon gaggle flying ).

The sprinklers now have ATV tires protecting them from errant drivers, thanks Ben

Other info to be added, but at present we have a mixture of Traxxas Slash and Losi Tenacity cars, of which mine has new chassis, and the Losi SCBE, which has an aluminum chassis.  Most cars are four wheel drives with a couple of two wheel drive cars and are running with 2 cell LIPO batteries. Three cells are allowed but they will run in a separate class. There are a couple of other cars but I did not get the models yet.

The Traxxas and Losi have an automatic steering assist to keep the car going straighter when all four wheels are spinning wildly. The steering assist can be adjusted from the transmitter as to how much gain it has.

John and Mark have added in some corners to add to the challenge and mayhem. The front straight has the a tabletop jump and now there are two berms in place on each end for corning if you hit them right or for air borne flight otherwise. The back straight away has a right then left turn to negotiate. Has slow traffic down considerably and made the course more enjoyable.

The track is for the enjoyment of the club members, and at this time, and most likely the foreseeable future, there will be no planned racing with any other car clubs.
