, it's been along time since I've posted here. I thought it would be a good idea to share what's coming for the upcoming 2012/13 season.
Newly Painted track area
New Track Barrier featuring CRC Click track.
New Race Displays (see what we see from (4) different locations in the facility)
New Website (www.michianarc.com)
A little about us for those not familiar with our facility.
Our track is a 36'-0" X 60'-0" Ozite carpet layout. We've done our best to listen to the racers and and are removing the 2x4 track barrier and replacing it with CRC Clik trak. We share this track with both onroad and offroad type vehicles. Offroad classes we are offering this year are:
Sportsman SC 2wd. 17.5
Pro 2wd SC 17.5 blinky/spec speedo.
2wd buggy 17.5 blinky/spec any front tire..rear tires to be suburbs or slicks.
If your currently running your SC/buggy outdoors, we ask that they be cleaned up before bringing them on the carpet. Both these classes require proline street fighter tires. We've been able to get these tires to hookup very well on the carpet. They also are less wear'n'tear on the carpet.
Onroad classes this year are:
1/12th 17.5 Blinky (up for discussion to allow timing)
Rubber TC 17.5 Blinky esc
VTA. We follow the VTA rules. To my knowledge the only difference is we allow any spec esc, or timing speedo in a spec mode. We also do not have a battery limitation rule, however most of our guys kinda run towards the spirit of the rules and have older battery packs or newer "sport" type pacs in their cars.
Our facility also has wireless internet for all to share. I'm working to get live RC (video and audio) working and will hopefully have that functioning later this season.
We also have an onsite Hobby shop. While very small, I try to keep it stocked with the necessities. I'll order anything ya need. If you would like us to keep something in stock, just let us know. Oh yeah, we got snacks too!
Please feel free to ask any questions here. If you've been to our facility before, let your fellow racers know what you think about our place. (yikes...that could be interesting)
Enjoy the rest of your summer and we'll hopefully see you on our opening day, Friday September 28th.
