Is that really racing? Do they let up on the controllers? If the art is in the tune-up, kudos to them but that almost looks like they are on rails. WOW!!!

That's "wing car" racing for ya......stupid fast. Gobs of aero downforce. Cars look like doorstops with side dams.

That track is the "King" layout. It's the de facto standard hardcore racing layout. Last I heard, the record was in the 1.9 second range. Can't remember what the lap length is.....

If there is a commercial 1-24 scale track anywhere near, go check it out. Even the super 16D motored 4" wheelbase cars are pretty darn fast..... Wing car racing is pretty rare. Too fast and too much $$$ and requires some commitment.

Trivia for today........ :wave:

World record is 1sec46 . :wave:
It's expensive for big events in G7 class (free class).
There are many under-class which are affordable.

They were fast as H*** back in the late 60's too. Don't know if I could keep up on a track like that without getting whiplash. :eek: rr

I was going to race them, after going a couple times and watching these guys race and seeing how they set up their controllers with the relays and everything I decided to stick with my home track.

Didn,t Alan Galinko do a tjet that did the 1/4 mile in something like .2 seconds? That is literally in the blink of an eye.
