 Track FAQ

 

(1) How should I get into this hobby?

Everyone has a story on how they got into this hobby and there are plenty of opinions on the best way to start. Long time racers generally agree that 1/10th scale electric classes are one of the easiest ways to start. They are less expensive, less complex, and easier to drive than other classes. The best car or truck to buy depends on your local hobby shop and local racers. You should try to buy something that is popular among the local racers and has good parts availability at your local hobby shop. Once you get to the track, find someone that is winning and talk to them about tire choice and vehicle setup for the track.
