MSadler, Where are you now? We need some more 1/4 scale racers in this area. I found a 1/10th mile asphalt we can run if we can come up with more racers.

I moved to Dallas Texas in 84, I race 1/4 scale here since 05. There is a good group of guys that run 1/4 scale close to you in Algona Ia, Ft Dodge Ia and Rockford Il. All 3 tracks are about 3 hrs from Burlington. July 11th, 12th we will have a National race in Rockford also known as MPR. Then Aug 26,27 a national race in Ft Dodge and Aug 29, 30 in Algona.

My name is Walt Arthur I'm 45 I've been back racing rc for about 4 year's now, I've been running on road carpet. I have also ran carpet oval and dirt oval been wanting a quarter scale for quite a while and finally got one, just kinda sucks that the season is almost over so I'll have all winter to sit and stare at it but looking forward to 2016 season.

Hello 1/4 scalers,
I'm Terry I live in Ind. never did much rc racing, until I saw my first
1/4 scale sprintcar it was an ad in a magazine the pacesetter fiberglass champ style car I believe it was the late 80's I had to have it and ordered one. I could never afford to buy a complete car so I built my own. I had built a few cars for friends and competed once at Machesney park at there gas nationals. Wow have these cars changed a lot since than, well I put all my cars in boxes and raised my kids for a few years. I was cleaning the garage and ran across my 1/4 scale stuff, Well I'm hooked again! Started surfing the Internet about the new 1/4 scale racing, WOW has it come a long way! Downloaded the QSAC rules, called Jason with IQSR, and went to a race at Newton Park in Lakeville, Ind. and was very impressed with the people that I had met, I'm presently updating my cars and plan on racing sometime soon. Thank-you
