Hello,

We are interested in trying out racing in the off-road class.  Currently, we have a couple of 1/16 e-revo, would this be acceptable for your 1/10 off-road class? They are a little small, but reasonably fast.

As a e-revo owner myself I would say you should be fine to run them. I actually started racing using a traxxas car as well lol.

Hi there.  Yes, bring them out to the track on Sunday and give them a go.  If they are too fast we may need you to dial the speed back somehow.

They should be on par with the rest of the trucks with a 2 cell LiPo and the stock gearing. I had issues finishing the race with the stock NiMH packs when I ran my traxxas at the races so be sure to pick up a LiPo before the race if you don't already have. I also have one you can borrow for the day if needed.

Hi all,

The weather forecast for tomorrow (Sunday June 13) is not ideal, but we'll be at the track in the morning.  Track setup will begin at 9:30am if the ground is dry.

See you all there,

Great First Race!
Thanks to everyone who made it out for our first official club race yesterday.  The weather looked threatening all day but somehow we stayed dry.  Due to the threat of rain we ran the track without sugar which meant lower grip racing.  This is a good way to learn throttle control and everyone did very well in those conditions.

Next Race is this Sunday, June 20
We are racing again this Sunday June 20.  Celebrate Father's Day with us at the track!

Hot Race Day!
Thanks to all racers for joining us for a great club race on Father's Day!  It was a hot one, and we had some excellent racing across the board.

We are racing again next Sunday June 27th, and we will take the following Sunday off (July 4th).

Happy Birthday JH.

Great club race despite the heat!
Thanks to all the racers who joined us for some great racing today.  It was a warm one - probably the hottest race day IROCC has seen in Colwood.  I'm really impressed with the quality of racing we're seeing in all classes, and at all levels.  Some excellent battles throughout the field.  Keep it up.


No Racing Next Sunday July 4
We are not racing on July 4th.  We'll be back on July 11th.
