Thanks Chuck...the video turned out good. Here's a link to the photos I took at the Spring Fling RC Festival:

Lookiong for advice

Hi guys, I'm looking for a little advice. I'm looking to get back into the hobby (I carpet raced in touring class about 12 years ago when HobbyTownUSA had an indoor course on the north side). I really enjoyed the racing, but at the time I was starting a family, and didn't have the extra time, anyway, on to my question. I'm not sure about getting into the off road racing side of things. my biggest complaint about the carpet racing was the inability to really "play" at all unless you where at a properly setup location. so being able to just run an off road chassis around the yard, is very appealing. like I mentioned, I've been out of the hobby for a while, so I would like to get back into a "starter" class. so to boil it all down, what class would you recommend for a starter, and a good chassis (if there isn't already a chassis lock down for that class).

The most popular of all RC vehicles these days is still a Traxxas Slash. They are just about indestructible and if you decide to not stay in the hobby, they resale great.

In addition almost every track has a stock Slash class. Not just in Indiana, but nationwide. The Slash has gotten GOBS of people into RC racing/hobbies. For less than $250, you are racing! My son and I started running a year before the Slash came out. We started with Associated RC10T4 trucks. They are great to run, but broke easily and we had about $500 in each one to race by comparison.

Here's a listing of all the known tracks in central Indiana if that helps you. Typically Indy RC runs Slash on Saturday nights. They leave their offroad track in for Sunday for just bashing and practice.

PS - Welcome back!

The world of RC is now mostly brushless motors and lipo batteries too. Big change there. The Slash is still brushed and shipped with NiMH batteries. But...you can upgrade if you want to go faster.

Doug had me update the website for him this week. Indy RC is now open again on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 5 PM to 10 PM. That's 1/18th scale racing on Tuesdays and off-road again on Wednesdays!

He also added a comprehensive new battery rule. Its on all the class pages:

Does anyone know if the shop has the Traxxas Kumho S1 front and rear tires for the Slash. Pre-mounts, preferably.

We've tried to get the old website domain back, but whomever has it wants an arm & leg to buy it back (jerks), so the new domain is now: www.IndyRCRaceway.net

The Tuesday night rules are now on a new sheet. Link is on the "CLASSES" page of the website.
