    Questions about racing.

    Post by rcracer207 on Sun Jul 19, 2009 7:03 pm

    Hi, tryed out your track for the first time this past week and now I definatelly want to start racing.

    Do all nitro vehicles need to have a pull start? I have a T-Maxx and was wondering about what happens if the truck dies during a race?? If I need to install a pull start do track marshals carry glow plug igniters or if the truck dies do you just end up with a DNF?

    I am also interested in racing in the stadium truck, electric stock class. you say "You must run a 27 turn brushed or 17.5 brushless ROAR approved motor."
    Does my completely stock Traxxas Rustler qualify with its stock Titan 12-turn 550 motor?

    Hi
    If a nitro vehicle stalls the corner marshal will return it to the driver if possible so that he may restart it. The corner marshals do not have ignitors or Traxxas starting wands. Most stadium trucks come with a "stock " version of a motor, usually not even as fast as a stock 27T, so yes you can run the motor that comes with the truck or as the rules state, a 27T stock or 17.5 brushless, they all seem to work out the same for racing purposes. If you have any more questions just ask, we are happy to answer them.

    I am thinking about coming and racing for the first time tomorrow. I think I will be racing my T-MAXX and either the Jato or the Rustler. All are ready for a transponder. What time do I need to show up? Is there any practice in the morning prior to racing?
    Also wondering what time the racing has been getting done lately. I can only be there until 3:15-3:20 because my wife has to work and I have to watch my daughter and I wasn't sure if I would have to leave early or if the racing has usually been all done by then. Thanks for your help, I really hope to be there tomorrow!

    You can get here as early as 10:30 and practice right up to noon time.Racing starts at noon or little after.We have been getting done around 3pm on average.I think tomorrow we will be missing a few racers due to the heat,but i could be wrong.You should be able to get in a full race day.
