    First time racer

    Post by spinnerwiz on Thu Apr 14, 2011 9:19 am

    Hello, I am 20 years old and I have been into RC cars and planes for a good 12 years but I have never raced at an official track. I currently live in Bangor and I can't seem to find any tracks or hobby shops around the area. I am wondering if there are any tracks in the area and/or if any tracks in Maine offer a 1/10th electric buggy modified class? Also, I've got an RC10B3 buggy and its considered vintage now??? Where have I been?

    The closest track I know of anywhere near Bangor is in Litchfield. Big big track more suited for nitro trucks with huge straightaways and tall jumps, but they do run 1/10th scale SCT's.

    That said, the only place I know of who is running 1/10th scale buggies this year is in Casco at Evolution Hobbies. They run a bunch of different classes actually, including beginner racer. That is a long drive from Bangor tho!

    Good luck, hope to see you out there this summer!

    Granite leisure time in oakland would be the closest for you, friday nights they race indoor carpet, and have a few outdoor races over the summer. For week to week racing it would be evolutions in casco, maximus in york or sparetime in litchfield all a long haul from bangor. GLT is running buggies as far as i know when theres enough for a class. I live in newport if you want some one to car pool with to go race
