we are not currently not allowed to run the gas cars on the track...we have had some discusion about them with the hqma directors... their concern is the fuel getting blown onto the track and changing the racing surface for the hqma racing cars... anyone have any info on the gas cars and the gas fuel that might get onto the track on race day? as for the 1\10th scale pan cars it is way smooth enough for them we did some practice laps last week and i used 3 green and a red lr and it ran rather well on a dust track...

Just my damn luck, I'm in the process of getting a Nitro Pan car as we speak and can't race @ my home town track, guess I'll have to sell the thing and get me another electric ride, anyone going to run the 4300 brushless class? Is there going to be a race schedule released?

havent measured the track for a run line yet only been on it with my car 1 time... we will have all that figured out this weekend... as for night racing there isnt any planned as of right now... check out www.rc3racing.com for the schedule... as for brushless we would have to wait and see what shows up to race.most likely it would end up being stock motors 4 cell but 3 or more makes a class... come 1 come all!!!!

I just did a step measure the time I went out there, and it was about a 420' runline. Of course that is give or take a little.

Should be a blast to have races on.. Come on out and give it a whirl..

i have heard that also... were are currently working on getting gas cars approved... i would really like to have a 1/4 scale myself... maybe if we could present them some of the cars for inspection and let them look at what might if any gas/fuel/oil if any at all would be left on the track...

I bet after the first race in Mtgy, the Coyote Pack could make a trip up there to demonstrate the 1/10th Nitor cars to them. I would bet we can get some of the 1/4 scalers to show up as well.
