BRAND NEW Dirt Devils Offroad RC Club in Delray Beach, Florida

Yup, that's right ladies and gents. There is a new track coming soon to Delray Beach for outdoor offroad r/c racing. South Florida Dirt Devils Off Road Racing club invites you to West Delray Regional Park.

The address is: ENTRANCE: 10875 Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, Florida 33436

Directions are: Head west on Atlantic Ave in Delray until it ends, the park is on the right. Pretty easy huh?

Memberships areavailable for $45/yr. Membership fees will include one free race day and discounted race fees.

This track is being designed with 1/10 scale buggy and truck, 1/8th scale buggy and truck and Short Course trucks in mind...

A core group of us has been hard at work every Sunday for the past few months building this track. We're within a week from finishing up, and would like to hold our opening day shortly there after.

For more photographs and track information please visit our website at www.dirtdevilsrc.com or you can find us on Facebook by searching South Florida Dirt Devils Offroad RC Club. Of course you may also post your questions here and I will try to answer them as quickly as possible.

Here's a copy of the post I put up in a neighboring forum for your viewing pleasure.

"Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted in an while. Been crazy busy with family stuff and work. I took these photos on 4-15, the last day we had the bobcat.

Since then the driver's stand has been mounted as well as more track work. WE'RE SOOO CLOSE! Today was a washout, but this week with a good push we can almost finish up.

Track still needs to borrow or buy the following:

Printer
Water Pump
Leaf Blower/s
PA System
Shovels/Rakes
Shipping Container (tall order I know, but spread the word)


We understand if you can't donate what is on the list, but if you have any of the items and are willing to let us borrow them until we've collected enough dues and race fees to purchase our own it would be appreciated. Remember to get your membership fee's into dandrc!

Now here's some track porn to keep everyone excited on this rainy Sunday:









"

Thanks and can't wait to meet some new faces!

Mike

Revised Track Schedule:

Sunday, May 27th, we'll be hosting a formal practice session.

9am - 4pm


We will have our lap counting system in place as well and a generator for charging up batteries. All AMB/Mylaps transponders will work.
  • Cost is $10 per person, ROAR membership required.
  • ROAR memberships will be available track-side, as well as Dirt Devils club memberships.

With enough vehicles, we would like to run some informal races to test out the lap counting software and get more familiar with it. This is your chance to see how your set up works on the track with actual recorded lap times before our rescheduled home opener on the 3rd of June.

Dan will be bringing a gas grill so everyone can cook up some hot lunch. If you're interested, bring some food to throw on it and toss Dan a couple bucks for the gas.

A note on tire selection: This track is soft and loose (my personal favorite, old school racers will appreciate it). With a little drizzle, it packs down pretty good but is still soft on the surface. This track likes Pins and Studs. Any tread pattern that is too tight will pack up with clay quickly and you'll soon be running slicks. I tried calibers on my stadium truck and it was like ice-skating around the track. Double D's hooked up ok when the track was dry, but when it was damp they packed up with clay almost instantly and all traction was lost. For the front end, Carvers seem to give me the best turning. Tried pins up front, tight ribs, and Carvers. Carvers worked best for me. This info only applies to 2wd open-wheel vehicles. You 4x guys and short course drivers are on your own

Alcohol is not permitted on park grounds. If you're caught by a Ranger, you're on your own. Yesterday someone was nice enough to leave a dozen beer bottles laying around after they left. Unacceptable, the club catches all the heat from this and we certainly don't need it. Clean up after yourselves and respect the track if you want to keep it public. If not, the park will fence it off and it will only be usable during club events. I don't want that, neither does anyone else I'm sure.

We will pretty much run any class that there are enough vehicles for (5 is the magic number).


Yearly club memberships will be available for $45 and carry some nice benefits.

We still have 2 transponders for sale, $95 each, first come first serve.

We also have 2 transponders for rent, $10 for the day, first come first serve.

We will pretty much run any class that there are enough vehicles for (5 is the magic number). Classes with less than 5 vehicles will be combined with the next closest class. Everyone gets to race!

We are taking pre-orders for transponders, $95 each, once we've collected enough for 10, we can order and get the discounted rate. Normally they are $110+.

We also have 2 transponders for rent, $10 for the day, first come first serve.

We've got new software and a new computer to run it on. Should be smoother sailing now and less wait time between heats.

Having a great time and racing with great people is our #1 goal, bad attitudes need not apply!

Here are some photos from yesterday's race. These are just 10 of the 47 photos I posted on our FaceBook page. If you haven't checked us out there yet, join our group! Just search for South Florida Dirt Devils

1/8 Buggy action is seriously heating up. Stadium Truck, 1/10 Buggy, and 4x4 Short Course are all on the rise as well!

Every week our track seems to get better and better. The changes our dedicated members have made as well as the addition of calcium to the track surface has made for really good traction and tight racing. We'll be at it again this Sunday, so if you haven't made it out yet, mark your calenders!

Stadium Truck is heating up boys and girls, BRING EM OUT!! I know we've got at least 4, 6 if Ben brings his buds.

1/8 buggy has been no joke these past few weeks, I'd like to see some more 1/8-E buggies showing these fuel-heads how it's done!


Don't forget, anyone available to help Dan and Joe out Thursday evening for track maintenance would be GREATLY appreciated.

Bring Em Out!!

Stadium Truck is starting to heat up much to my delight, so dust off those ST's and mod motors!

1/8 buggy is fierce as usual, but needs more E-bugs!

4x4 Short Course had a poor showing last weekend for the first time, lets change that up!
