CLUB RACING CLASSES
1/8th Scale Buggy and Truggy Class - Nitro or Electric are some of the most popular classes available. With the recent trend of more manufacturers offering quality car kits and lower prices, these classes have become extremely popular. These classes continue to grow as the prices come down and competition increases and both Nitro and Electric are popular.
Short Course or Stadium Truck classes modeled after their real-life counterparts have exploded in popularity in recent years. Offered in Ready-To-Run (RTR) 2-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive kits and your choice of either Electric or Nitro. This class is a great way to get started and offers plenty of great close quarters racing action at an affordable price.
1/10th Scale Electric Buggy and Truck classes have been around since the beginning of R/C racing. These lightweight and powerful vehicles provide a challenging and rewarding experience where driver skill and experience shine. Once thought to be dead, these classes are still popular offering 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive buggy and 2-wheel drive truck kits.
Novice Class is available and open to any vehicle and designed for new drivers just starting in R/C racing. This class is open to anyone who is not comfortable running in their vehicle's normal class or who's vehicle does not meet the rules or requirements for our other classes. This is a great way to get started and learn what a R/C racing event is like.
