navo-

idk if you are in the area but if you are looking for a body i do have a extra one you can mount on your car if u can not find one it time. it is painted. and its used but i do have it here if needed. you can call or text me if needed 925.234.5246

as far as the off road guys coming out to run some roundy round lol this will be very cool to see who shows up out of surprise for some old school fun. last time i raced delta oval i was a young kid and it will be my turn to help people out just like i got the help. cant wait to see some great racing!

Jason absolute hobbies carries the 2 novarossi engines, tower has the o.s. and Amain has the losi 350. We can get you a losi 350 if thats what you want to go with. We can also get the spec pipe you will need to run.

You def need to buy the spec edm body. they are unfortunetly kind of a pain to get sometimes. Here is the website for the cdk edm bodies. Im not sure why but the body we will be running is not on their website. You can call and tell them you want a best of the west spec edm body.

You can also email Matt Murphy from Murfdogg motorworks as I believe he may have some avail for purchase as well. Here is his contact info...

Glad to see you will be coming out to run some oval again Jason its gonna be a blast. You won't believe how fast they are going now on the sealed tracks!

Buttercup, Butch, and Jeff thanks for all the help answering questions!

Randy I like the workshop idea. Lots of fast guys around here that would be more than happy to help out some newer guys. Its easy to get lost trying to get your oval gear since its not as mainstream as offroad. I suggest people go to www.dirtoval.com as well and check their forums out. Every manufacturer has a thread and factory guys can answer questions as well. We should have our own drc speedway thread on there very soon.

Some action on the oval is a definite possibility by next weekend!

thanks i posted all the motors from the delta rules. was not wanting to put a losi motor in my rc8.

but that looks like what i will be ordering. i figured they would know where to get these motors since there were only 4 to chose from. and are in the rules.

i would like to add to "big head"s earlier post , the interest in oval again @ delta has turned alot more heads than some of may think , i am as most of you know an off-road guy and all i hear i the pits on off-raod nights is 'what class you gonna run ?" a lot of newbies will be giving this a try for the first time . not to mention the rookie class should be fairly big i think its a little easier for the kids to get around an oval than off road , and the return of some ol' oval drivers from back in the day , myself included

i personally have helped 1 guy set his family up with 3- 2wd SC/LM 's for the new track and know of at least 2 more familys that will be doing the same for thier kids as well

i know most of you dont know it , but Butch Clay CAN NOT stop smiling

so,.. some of you oval vets need not be suprised if you see a lot of new faces in you're pits lookin' for help and tips .......gonna be like old times on friday night

Great info... thanks alot Butch! That helps a ton

any other info is great too!

Last big oval race I was at was the JG in like 1992 ish. Was running a Losi jrxpro sprint car a took 7 in the B "lol" and Eric Vasutin won the A main with his Reflex 10 sprint car.... That I bought from him shortly after! ah... the good ol days!!!  I forgot way more than I remember about tuning tho!!

Nova, I would start with Associated TC3 springs in the front, gold on the right and blue on the left, and Custom Works 8lb springs across the rear. 60W oil in the front and 40w in the rear shocks. That's what I have on my car and it seems to work well at the other sealed tracks. Gearing is going to depend on what motor ESC set up you choose, and this being a new track I have no idea yet. Tire wise, I prefer RC4Less purples in the front and Magentas in the rear. Madera has the same sealer and those compounds have been good for me at that track 3 different times with minimal tire wear. But time will tell. As far as that body, I suggest you find the CDK recommended, Hopper might be bringing some in (especially if he wants this class to grow) that way if you choose to travel or run the Gold Cup, you will have no problems.

Nova - RC4LESS.COM has a pattern on what the tires should look like when you groove them. It will also give you the Dremel cutting bit part # to make life easier. Then all I can say is Practice! It takes time.

As far as setup on that older car? I suggest that you go onto DIRTOVAL.COM and post up. There are tons of people that can help you on that site. However, I will say that until the track is layed out and finished, it will be hard to determine what tires and what springs will be needed on that surface.

Sounds like Hopper needs to put together a Dirt Oval workshop one afternoon at the track to help all and everyone that needs it. Sounds like a lot of interest from newbies which is a great thing. Just a suggestion Hopper.

Oh... and any chance of oval practice on the 8th while the Explosion race is going on? Might be a good way to build more intrest with all the off roaders that will be there that day and for some of us that are already getting cars together.... we can get a few laps in!!!

just checking/no worries if not "just helps plan my rc work load for the week"

thanks

Cool, thanks 4 the info Hopper! BTW this is Jason L from off road.

are you guys going to be stocking the foam tires?

also, question for anyone: any good links or web sights for cutting foam tread & grooves? and... any techinques to do this w/out a tire truer?

any further info or 2c on the Customer Works "older model gbx intimidator"  EDM setup/advise would be great! from anyone out there,  or if you have any tuning patrs for sale? tires, springs, ect. Just picked this up on e-bay really clean & lightly used. it does have the slipper eleminator.... witch I know nothing about???.... and a very small spur gear thats 64 pitch.... worth leaving this set up on it? or re-installing a slipper (witch i do have).

Is EDM a pretty big class?? Because im on the fence with some other classes "street stock & sct latemodel or even 4x4 sc late model.

Thanks guys!

Right on Brannon. Check out the 4wd sclm class. It's gonna be fast with plenty of power.

Heck maybe step it up to a 410 Sprint or a 7.5 edm! Plenty of speed for anyone.

agreed!!!!

once again, not trying to knock anyone down.

i might just have to slap this body on my rc8.2 and GO FAST!!! or even my 4x4sct for that matter.

im an offroad guy, i wanna go fast , street is just not part of my vocabulary, even if it is only the name of the tire, LOL

im not discuraged, nor do i want anyone else to be, maybe i just choose the wrong class before doing my research to what i wanna drive for the drivering style and the competative nature of the sport.

not asking you to change anyting or seem that i am upset, not at all, i agree a clear set of rule, and commend you for putting the program. this is just more of a sportsman class, whitch clearly i am a little ( not floating my own boat) above the sportman level.

Not saying im out, Just saying im not gonna run 2wd sclm 17.5 nr.

think i might have to step up the game!!!!!
