The Motor is a NML V2 w/10 th pinion. Tires are Z Speed foams on Z Speed alloy wheels. The track is wood painted with a sand mixture similar to asphalt.
30 degree banked corners and 7 degree straights.

That track is just calling for some CP cup car action.

OK now with the 1/10 on the track it looks like you could run a full field of 43 mini z's on that track. I am suprised how well the Z kept up with the 1/10. How hopped up is that F1?

Raleigh is about 3 hrs away. E-mail me if you can make it down. We also race on a micro/mini-z track on Thursday nights at another location.

TITANIUM, thanks for the compliments on my site. The track is open on the weekends, but sorry, I won't be able to hook up on Saturday morning. I will be available on Sunday, though.

I used to live in Duram right behind Duke University. I wish I knew about your place. It would have been worth the two hour trip.

This Track opened up about 5 months ago. They mainly cater to Nitro Offroad. They built the oval track about 2 months ago, but it has not seen much action and we have yet to run the first race. I hope more people will try it out. It is a blast!
