sooo what exactly is ice racing?

2012.05.02, 06:10 AM
Racing on a no traction surface with less than no traction tires. Similar to dirt track racing just a lot cleaner and on a road course.

What scale? Full or what?:confused:

2012.05.02, 12:15 PM
Were running the Traxxas I think 1/18 scale Mustangs and ralley cars. With stock tires. bassically Drift racing. A bunch of fun..


2012.05.02, 05:56 PM
1/16 scale :D

2012.05.03, 12:17 AM
where do yall run this at? sounds like a whole lot of fun. we are trying to get a 1/10 scale parking lot race going. im excited about expanding my r/c experience. any of yall race 1/10th scale?

2012.05.03, 05:43 AM
Not a path I would choose again. I'm still trying to get rid of all the gear from the last adventure of extreme depletion of disposable income.

The cool thing about these cars is it is basically a box stock class so it is equal for everybody.

We use half the parking lot at High Speed and the loading dock as a drivers stand. Timing is I-lap same as indoors so there is nothing else to purchase.

2012.05.03, 09:24 AM
I used to race 1/10 and 1/8 scale also 1/12 scale electric and nitro. The best thing i can tell you about racing is.... Find 1 thing and race that. It gets very expensive racing multiple rc classes. You end up with no time or money to keep up in all the classes. It is fun to dabble in different things. But just race one type.

2012.05.03, 10:52 PM
yes i understand that i shouldnt get in to many different forms of racing. We however are doing a box stock 1/10 scale race. out of the box ready to run kyosho fazers right now. comes stock with a 27T motor. I used to run nitro (more of bashing lol) I enjoy nitro but landon is showing me the wordl of ELECTRIC. It's a lot of fun so far.... mike message me with what kind of stuff you have for sale and i will see if there is anything i may be interested in. thanks again. I may be making a weekend trip up to charlotte to see my brother hohpefully this time i get to stop in and race a little.

2012.05.04, 06:06 AM
Will do. There should be at least two cars plus quite a bit of electronics gear.

2012.05.10, 09:09 PM
ice racing resumes sat may 19,2012

start time will be around 11am or 12pm

2012.06.13, 06:08 PM
Well!!!! I ran my first ice road race this past saturday!!!! I know i said find one thing to race and stick with that. But with no extra parts to buy[no making it handle better or go faster] i figured what the heck. Man was it a blast. As far as go faster , shoot you dont need the speed it already has. That was an amazing race. O ya, rodney!!!! I am coming for you the next race..... With a little more practice.... Im going to give you a run for your money.:)

2012.07.19, 08:12 PM

Hi guys, again not trying to invade on your thread. As I hope most of you know that we have a 4 hour enduro coming up on March 16th here in MD. I am trying to get a feel for any teams that where planning on coming. We are about a month away but we have not really heard any buzz about other clubs coming. If anyone was planning on coming please send me a private message. I feel that we will need to cancel the race at the hobby shop were it is being held if it looks like we don't have enough teams. Thanks guys. MK

2013.02.07, 08:52 PM
since the cc race will be the 1st saturday in march we will push back the ice race till MARCH 9th the 2nd saturday in march hope everyone can attend

2013.03.01, 09:14 AM

Isn't this the weekend for the ice? Could make for a busy weekend. Autofair plus the "Ice" and I think there is the regular local car show as well.

Daddy Rabbit
2013.04.03, 09:38 AM
Mike.....Does Charlotte ever have the international car show with all the proto type cars and new models?:confused:
Sorry, I know this is off topic.:o

2013.04.03, 09:44 AM
Not that I am aware of. Just the regular new car show in October. This weekend though is the Auto fair at the speedway wher the entire place is covered with Rods and customs plus a huge swap meet ,flea market and auction.

2013.04.03, 10:27 AM

I'm up for it. Weather permitting.

2014.08.12, 08:14 PM
Ok guys. Let's get it going this Saturday for some Ice racing. Let me know, and let me know oval or road course.

2014.08.13, 06:05 AM
Since we have so much fun with this but have a very difficult time in getting manpower for track set up how about making it the choice of the person(s) doing the work.

2014.09.27, 09:22 PM
Had a great turnout today for "Ice Racing", and it was nothing short of amazing. People pulled in to see what the fuss was about and couldn't pull themselves away. We have a great group of guys that put on a great show today, and we continue to grow. Today it was Wade Smith to take the top spot. Be on the lookout for the next race!
