Default 2012 The Dirt Nitro Challenge - 1/5 Track

Hey All

So I have not seen a post on this event yet. The event seems to be so well known they dont need to post in forums or have official websites or anything.

BUT, this is GREAT news for large scale and I want to promote this even as much as I can for the good of all of us.

If anyone has questions please post them here and I will try to talk with Joey and get some answers for you all.

Our post:
The Dirt Nitro Challenge – AZ – Feb 22nd - Large Scale News


The 2012 The Dirt Nitro Challenge Feb 22-26

Looks like nitro breathing fans from around the world will be gathering in Arizona at the end of February for the 2012 The Dirt Nitro Challenge. You ask what is so great about that and why should you care? Well because they are building a specific 1/5 track and allowing 2wd and 4wd drive large scales to enter. Get your baja, losi 5ive-t, MCD etc ready to race!

This is a major event, "The Dirt" informed us that they expect over 500 entries with racers from around the world. The even will be covered by every magazine and blog in our industry including local TV coverage. This is our time to shine guys, lets get our big trucks over there and show them how fun and exciting large scale can be.

There is very little posted information about this event on the web, no official site or forum either. But the flyer is all over the internet and I guess its just one of those events everyone knows the deal... But I will post what I know and have read below.

Location is Home Page

Fear Farm R/C Raceway will have 3 new tracks for "The Dirt", Nitro Challenge. Please email your entry to Joey at thedirtracing@aol.com as this will speed up the registration process for this date. Check in and registration starts at 6:30AM with practice starting as soon as entries are completed (roughly 9AM). 2 rounds of 7 minutes practice heats will be run on this day. Email Joey or Kenny with questions: Joey thedirtracing@aol.com, kenny kenny@racekbrl.com

I will have a hexacopter getting aerial footage when I am not racing. While I am racing I will have a gopro mounted in car and on my head. I will post video when edited.

Main is 45 minutes long and I doubt the losi will make that so be prepared to make a fuel stop. Stock gas cap is required.


Oh and they finished the new track layout yesterday I think and no practice until the Friday of so no locals lilke myself will have an advantage.

I can't wait to see that fuel stop on the Losi ?!? Maybe make a drill attachment to remove it and have another stock cap for the refill ?!?
