Summit Raceway--Fort Wayne, IN Carpet Road Course Racing

We will have the road course setup this Sunday for practice and some racing. Bring your 1/12, touring car, Pro-10 or Vintage Trans-Am car out for some practice before the season starts.

Looking forward to trying my 21.5/lipo setup on mt VTA car. I'm trying to get my trusty rubber tire setup under it. Should be a lot of fun.

Awesome time today fellas. VTA is going to be unbelievable this winter. I finally got my super-dooper rubber tire setup back on the car and it was pretty good. Getting ready to go Mergy hunting.

Hopefully next time I have the 12th going for some laps. I need to have that baby going so I can get up to speed. Leah is going to be tough this year....

Thanks for everyone coming out and racing. Special thanks to Bob and Brian for traveling from Indy. We will have to make the trip down to race with you guys sometime this season. Congrats to Jacob on a third place finish.

I should have a 1/12 together for next time too.

We'll be back on the carpet Sunday, July 13th.

I was running a 21.5/lipo in my Losi at around 4.4. I was coming off the track at 150F, so I was really close. I will try something a little higher next time. I wonder if a little extra lift off the corners would have picked up any time.

Are you guys trying to run the same rollout or are you just tryin to get the best for your particular situation....Down south we are trying to run the same rollout w/each particular batt/motor combo to keep it close...Just wandering so when I come up I will be ready w/the right FDR

I see... That's not a bad idea. Most of the time, though, the guys towards the front are all going to be in the same neighborhood gear-wise.

Don't mind that guy, he's a little "touched". Just smile and nod.
