I am starting this thread so we can get a good turn out for carpet road course.

The track will be located at 7868 Groveport Road, Groveport, Ohio. Phone #614-778-9691. Website: www.enhobbies.com. The track is yet to be built should be up and running within a month or so, right now they are in the legal stuff to get it rolling. they currently have a out door dirt track that will also be indoors soon.

So lets show the support from the Columbus area, i am a ex racer and used to race at platnuim hobbies on brice road i havent raced since then but would be great to get back into it and see some of the old electric road course carpet racer back in action.

i posted this here but they have teh same post in the oval section i posted here to nottify the road course guys LET SHOW SUPPORT

here is the link for the oval section http://www.hobbytalk.com/bbs1/showthread.php?p=2999882

ive been looking into this place for quite some time now and i really want to get back into rc :) but I cant find out any details about the. Ive been to there website. ive been to the hobby shop and ive been to the track twice. But i heard from the hobby store owner that the carpet track will be open nov 1. but thats all he could tell me. and that it was going to be oval and on road. He didnt tell me what kind of classes therre were going to be. SO I was just curious if anyone had any more details on the track? like if there is going to be any indoor offroad racing (like sc on carpet) and what kind of oval classes will be raced. any details would be greatly appreceated. Also if you can tell me anything about the offroad track that would be great

THANKS
Sean Scott

My girfriend was there and asked a bunch of questions. They were not sure about classes or anything, they were more involved in just trying to secure the space first. I'm sure as more info becomes available they will come on here and update us.

Will anyone be running 1/12? I have some money and would like to buy a kit and build it soon. Can anyone steer me in the right direction? I was looking into a 1/12 kit.

I've spoken with the track owner and he said he'd run whatever people showed up with. I'm looking at the Calandra Gen-xl OR the team associated 12r5.1 - Both will be carried at the track, so spares shouldn't be an issue. I suggest people just decide what they are going to build and if there are 5 or so people with a car, there'll be a class. The stock setup would be 1s lipo AND 17.5 OR 13.5t brushless motors.

Thanks for any insight

Also the correct # for track is 614 836 5372

We need to start our own class

Looks like the good people on the oval forum are running 1/10. Anyone interested in getting enough 1/12 pan cars together to run 1/12 Onroad?

I've done some research if you've any questions about chassis or electronics.

Cheers

Sounds good, but be aware that there are two well established carpet roadcourses within an easy 2hr drive from Columbus. (the Gate in Cleveland, and Tri-State in Hamilton) I would suggest trying to get 1/12 roadcourse going on a weeknight..

Wow, I didn't know that people travel that far to race. Maybe I shouldn't complain about crcrc being on the other side of town. You point is a valid one. We should look into the 1/12 schedule for those other events and suggest something that makes sense once the track opens, which should be this weekend unless things have changed.

Any news?

Also, can we post this anywhere else that might get us more joiners in the 1/12 class?

Onroad forum would be the best place to get 1/12 guys, it just seems that the oval guys are doing more talking. I don't run 12th myself but, I know some of the guys form here in Dayton do and would probably bring them out. I can't wait for this place to open, I will definitely come over and check it out and bring a few friends with me.

When you mention onroad forum, are you referring to HobbyTalk or a forum called Onroad?

Thanks.

I'm talking about this very forum where the thread is already. Though I haven't searched to see if there is a dedicated 12th scale thread, but this one would be your best place for getting guys to come to this track. The main thing is for people to post so this stays up near the top so others will see it.

I've posted either links or just general directions on finding this thread on other popular sites. Hopefully we'll get more visitors!

Sean, Haven't heard of much interest in carpet offroad, but I know that 1/18th carpet offroad w/ foam tires and jumps was big about a year ago out east. I have heard the place is open to about anything under 1/10th scale. If you could rally enough enthousiasm, they might be into the offroad carpet thing. Just show up, talk it up and see where it goes. Until then, buy a 1/12 kit!
