« on: October 28, 2014, 09:04:29 PM »
OutlawRC proudly presents carpet racing this winter. We have purchased 2400 sqft of ozite carpet to extend our racing program through the winter months. We were unable to return to Thunderbird show park this year for dirt racing and we were unable to aquire another covered dirt area to race with this year so we though hmmm...

About the race, Minimum 5 cars to run a heat, 4 min. qualifiers , 6 min. mains, 8 min. A mains, Heads up qualifying, Double bumps for the mains.

About the track, 2400 sqft of carpet, 8' wide lanes, tabletop, a few launch ramps and a few low risers. We are looking into a wall ride as well but might not make it into the schedule till race 2.

I don't think anyone has or runs a 3cell LiPo in 1/8 buggy. 4 cell is the normal.

4 cell is normal for 1/8 buggy but very aggressive for carpet. Limiting 3 cell for the one class will reduce the torque output a bit to help with not damaging the track.

Sorry missed prices on first post

Novice - $10 (1 class only)

First class outlawrc member - $15
Second or third class outlawrc member - $10

First class non member - $20
Second or third class non member - $15

I'm not sure you'll have any turn out in 1/8 buggy if it's 3s then as most everyone will need to buy a battery that can take the demands of their systems, possibly need a higher KV motor to have power as well. I can't run my car on 3s as it's designed for two 2s packs on either side of the car.

I'm curious to see how the carpet wears at the jump landings.

Me 2. Our jumps are being designed as more of a launch to allow the cars to hopefully land fast and fluid with 4 wheels
( fingers crossed ) land at once the majority of time. If you research carpet racing you will find the odd post where drivers double side tape lexan to the underside of chassis to prevent screws and such from digging in.

With that said please make sure your screws are set and if possible file or grind down any edges or protrusions.

Wonder of Wes has stock? That's the money right there.

I also read up that most tracks don't typically have a ride height for carpet in particular but off road is usually 3-5mm ride height. You guys check your ride height and limit it if you could. Our track looks stellar and fun. We will post a picture of it on our website and Facebook page in a few days.

Is there a limit on 2wd 1/10 motor sizes?  Can I race a 540 size 7.5 turn motor?

What kind of tires are you guys planning to run on the carpet?

Have you decided if 4S is going to be permitted for the 8th scale buggies?

Is this taking place in a heated building?

Thanks in advance.
Your politics suck!!!!

Tires - foam,stock, medium or hard compound tires

3s lipo for 1/8 scale. I know 4s is standard for 1/8 but 1/8 is not standard for carpet so we have to meet in the middle.

The building is heated with washrooms on site.

See you their!!!!
