Great advise guys. Stick radios are now becoming a scarce bthing, sanwa gemini x for around 150 quid new, these radios are bullit proof. Servos are savox all the way. The team c that ian is selling is a cracking car and there are loads that run at the club so spares arnt a problem. Always ask questions because even the most experianced amongst us dont know everything. Hope to see you soon,(look for the pink and white cars).

Hi, Im looking to get back into racing after a long time off I was 13 last time i raced (now 29) and 2000 batteries were mega bucks...(me n my old man used to do doncaster, worksop, ashby) I notice time has moved on what classes do you guys regularly run I was looking to the minis you guys do or maybe back into 1/10 touring cars like i used to do time ago with a losi street weapon and an sst. At present i have a tt-01 i muck about with from time to time... bit of advice on a purchase on a cheapy set up to see if i get back into it. As track days in my car are proving an expensive hobby!

Hi Pinky, we only run buggies at the moment, on road stuff virtually died out here at Mansfield. However Broxtowe have gone the other way and have a thriving on road club on Saturday nights. Maybe worth posting on their section too?

I think the best thing you can do is come and pay us a visit and have a chat, see what we all race and get some good solid advice

Default Carpet for RC Drifting

Hi,

My name is Matt Chandler, I've been doing some research on RC drifting and seeing what areas have a RC drift track or hold RC racing I have come across your RC Racing Club and was seeing all the comments about the track surface.

As a researcher I thought if I could pass you on this information it may help you to upgrade your area for the drifting which may bring more racers in your area to the club.

Hopefully this will help

P.s. I don't mind putting some money towards if you do decide to upgrade. Just pass on the figure and I'll see how much I can put towards it.

Hi Benny, as a club we are a buggy/offroad club and our carpet stays down all year round, we used to have a drifting section when we were a floor down from were we are now, very poorly attended. if you like you are more than welcome to come and pay us a visit and have a talk to our race director, hope this helps

Hi guys, I was wondering if you are still running down at Botany Av at 18:00.
I know it's shot notice but can anyone let me know by tonight: l_____________@hotmail.com
or just let me know for another week.
Thanks.

I just want to come down talk to you guys, see what's required and how much fun it can be. I built an RC buggy when I was ten, that's about twenty years ago now, so I guess a lot has changed...

Dom

Yes Dom they race every wednesday, racing starts at 7 but people get there about 6-6.30. I've only been a couple of times but they are a friendly bunch and will help you get re-started(don't buy anything until you spoken to them, theres some good 2nd hand kits for sale from some of the guys). Its £5 and racings on carpet, the track and jumps change every week to keep you on your toes.

Im not able to get there tonight due to work but I hadn't raced for 25 years. The batteries, speed controllers and motors have really changed but essentially its the same challenge of keeping a small car in a straight line as fast as possible!

Good luck !

I was looking forward to it, but my garage has not phoned me back and so I have no car (again) this evening.
My main questions would have been where to start I suppose, 2wd, 4wd I'de prefer to buy a kit and build it up myself to get to know it better then upgrade over time. But I guess I'll have to wait till next week.

Thanks' all for the answers.
