Just wondering if you guys know of anywhere that runs it besides dirt oval.

Race Place at the Quakertown Farmers Market used to run on weekends, but their website doesn't say if they run outdoors anymore.

I might run 1/18th scale off-road at my backyard track come late spring or early summer...won't decide until then, though... :cool:

unfortunately 1/18th scale has peaked....
there is a core group of 1/18 scalers in MD and CT...
The 1/18th mini nats happen in CT around Easter. Check out
www.rcmadness.com they are in Enfield, CT

Mushroombowl down in Kennett Square used to run 18th every year indoors in the winter... Don't know if they still do or not. 18th onroad with the Xrays was their bread and butter but so much has changed with new cars in different scales that I doubt they still run them. Trucks always had a good following though. Check their site out, you'll definitely find out then. Heck of a drive for you though.

Hey Larry, you gonna cut out a section of your lawn out back this spring? Thanks for the Helios fix too bud, works like a charm and I manage to fit it into the drop-down setup too.

Justin...bring your F-1 along also. I had off Chritmas to New Years, so i had alot of time to get organized. Got my F-1 on track again after a tear down/re-built.

QUINN...Bring your F-1 and AWD. Worked on that too. Its starting to look pretty good.

We should have enough different vehicles to run more classes or run AWD with 2WD and match motors up to even them out together.:)

The PN ones are tuff to find. I think i saw 3 Racing ones floating around. Double check the shop here.

Yes I race 1/10th every once in a while, but they don't have any kinda of 1/18th league. I figured there wouldnt be much around for it as 1/10th seems to be the most popular
