Check out youtube, there's a bunch of them... I have 2 bikes, a nitro and an electric... There's a learning curve to driving and adjusting the steering but they are a ball once you get the hang of it...

f1's put tires on for heats, and then new skin for mains, the sedans put new tires on for each day of heats and then main.

Tire wear was not very bad at all. we have definatly seen worse. The track is a blast to drive and has plenty of areas to gain or lose speed.. with very challenging passing you had to be smart and work your way through traffic.

That's an expensive day... Got plenty of club racing tires after that... hahahaha.... I'm going to make my way out to that track one of these days, whether or not I have my car with me is another story... Traveling with a 5th scale isn't easy... I know Scott mailed his car UPS...
