Track Questions
« on: April 18, 2015, 07:45:13 PM »
I'm thinking about trying the Outlaw RC track this year and had a few questions:

-From the website photos it looks like there is a covered pit area and power. Is this still the case and do I need to bring my own extension cord?
-Are there any pit tables and chairs or do I need to bring my own?
-I'm potentially bringing a nitro REVO but wouldn't have anyone to pit for me. How long do the nitro races usually last (longer than one tank)?
-Is there any charge for parking at the event?

Thanks!

The covered areas are tents people are bringing themselves.
You need your own pit set up. There is power at the track on race days.
Nitro gets mixed with electric. So you should make your heats in one tank.
If you have a step plug 220-120 there is power there and you will need your own cord.

When you mention 220 volt to 120 volt step plug does that mean you need a proper voltage converter or just a plug adapter?

It's like you would use for an rv. I plug 110 stuff into it and nothing bad happens.

The plug is a gas range converter plug. I saw it at home depot. Simple alternative for power at track during practice. We have plans to set up day use plugs but its all and always a budget thing.

Is there power available on non-race days if we have this converter plug?

Yes on the back and the parking lot side of the showbarn. In a 8by8 metal box is a stove plug. One cover swings open freely the other just needs a quarter or dime to turn the latch.
