My son and I have run there at Browns during the summer on the off-road track, very nice place, the owner Jeff, his wife and son are very helpful, very nice family run business. As you mentioned on the BD's forum, they just updated their indoor carpet track, outstanding venue for all sorts of classes, I will be heading that way soon with my MOD slider, 4WD and 2WD SCT's. Check out youtube for a few videos of the off-road track, I dont think I have seen any for the indoor carpet track. The last time I spoke with Jeff's son they were going to try and get a website up and running soon.

thanks for the link....kind of a dead end for now... I too talked to the guy from Browns...I'm guessing it was Jeff he sounded older...well older then me.

From what i gathered is racing pricing is $7 for 1st class, $5 for 2nd class, $3 for 3rd class, and any other class after that is free. They do have transponders on hand, and they provide them for you. I asked him how much they were to rent and he almost laughed. He said they are free to use. I don't know if you get to hold on to it for the day like some other places or you put it in before race and everyone shares a few?

They also race not only Saturday but also on Sunday too. I think he said racing was starting up at 3pm on Saturday and Noon on Sunday. I'm not 100% on that Saturday start time. I'm looking to make my way down there maybe before xmas, but definately after. Looks like a nice easy ride down RT 11 to RT 7.

Yeah I posted that as soon as I found it, but they did put pic's up now. I might be interested in going down as thats not much of a longer drive for me than it is for you, Bill. I only live about 3 miles from I-80, so the directions only say it's about an hr or so for me to drive (88 Miles). I'll do that just to check it out.

You will find that there are no rules per say, just class rules (I.E.- 2WD CORR truck, 4WD CORR truck, ETC), there are no rules as far as electronics, although the last time I spoke with Jeff he was thinking of adding a non-lipo class for the 1/18 scale guys.
