1. All cars must have an EDM body. No wedge, buggy, truck, on-road etc.
2. All bodies must be made of polycarbonate. No aluminum, etc.
3. No side dams, other than “sail panels”. Left and right sides must be symmetrical.
4. All cars should be numbered and painted.
5. Maximum body height is 7-3/4”, measured at any point.
6. Maximum body width is 8”.
7. Door panels may not extend past the centerline of the front axle.
8. Right rear tire must be at least 1/3 exposed.

All Classes:

-Batteries Must be either 2 Cell 7.4 Volt Lipos or 5 or 6 cell Nimh Sub C Batteries.
-All drivers must bring their car to tech BEFORE AND AFTER your race.
-Drivers using Lipos can and will be teched before start of heat.
-Lipos may not be over 8.44 Volts, or 10* above ambient temperature. Anyone caught overcharging or excessively over heating your batteries will lose their opportunity to qualify in that given race.
-Drivers caught overcharging/over warming Lipos will be given the 3 strikes opportunity. The first strike - you lose your heat. The 2nd strike (and yes, it can be months after your first strike) - you will be packing up and leaving for the day. 3rd Stike and your gone for the season. We do not need any Lipo fires in the Dungeon.
-All drivers must take their car and radio to the tech table and go directly to track to marshal the next race. If you fail to marshal, you will lose your best run.
-All Brushless 1/10 Motors must be sensored.
-All cars must be 2wd and rear wheel driven.
-Any traction compound (such as those by Trinity, RC4Less, Putnam Propulsion, etc), Marine Grease, Dr. Trannys Assembly Goo, etc, is allowed.
-No reverse is allowed during racing! We understand that some of you have ESC's that have reverse. If possible, please lock it out.
-No driving backwards around the track. We have seen it happen a few times in practice, which resulted in cars being broken. You will be warned once, and only once.
-All cars must have 4 wheel independent suspension. No Straight axle/Pan cars allowed!
-No practice or hot-laps in between each heat. That time is for the racers in the next race. If circumstances require a couple laps in between a heat, you will be allowed to if the race director gives you the OK. This does not mean open practice between every heat. It means 1 or 2 laps to make sure everything is working, then back to the pit until your race.

We are also implementing a 70 Lap rule for Small Block EDMs. If you are consistently running 70 laps or more, you're bumping up.


Entry fee will be $10. Racers may run up to 2 classes (so its $10 if you run 2 classes, or $10 if you run 1). Racers may run unlimited classes for $15. However, drivers in Big Block may not run in Small Block EDM, and vice versa.


The track is located at:
******* RC LLC
120 Cayuga St
Fulton, NY 13069

(315)-532-6826


If anyone has any questions, please feel free to post here, PM me, email me or call the shop. I will try to have everything printed out and posted around the track room ASAP

Yes! for sure, 17.5 is way to slow for guys like Shilo BOYce!
for SURE,as long as i have dave PEEk setting my car up..sprint cars are still big block (358) i havn't won there yet,but i'm not the person that wants to put a slower motor in my car , i want to get better at driving with a motor ,that i drive with the trigger finger ,the last time i did race there i thought 13.5 was perfect for red neck..(hey another kayak trip i might not be able to do that..)And i was tooking back for a track that was non dodc ,my view is that they did not want to be = slower???i say again i don't race there every week ,but when i do i look forward to raceing 13.5 ...thats my 23 cents davepeek:wave:

I assumed the 17.5 in BB class was a typo. Why run 2 classes BB and SB with the same motor? 13.5 is a nice speed for that track. Heck ill run 10.5 with Shilo Peek and Hotaling! Let her rip!!!

17.5 for big block is not a typo. If there are guys who want to run a 13.5 class, or open mod of whatever, as long as we have 4 we will run them. The only class we run that uses DODC rules as guidelines is the Latemodel class, so if you guys want to run 13.5 whenever you come out, it does not have to be DODC motor and battery.

17.5s were chosen because all but 1 or 2 big block racers (who race there weekly) preferred that 17.5s be used because it would make the racing closer. Had to please the majority, not the minority.
